The Boden ‘Prog’

Family Photo Boden Prog 6 & 7 string

What makes it special?

The Prog was developed for progressive rock/metal players who need a cutting tone, slick playability and a smooth-functioning tremolo system. The body consists of Swamp Ash to provide punchy high-mids, 4A Flame Maple top for added brilliance and tightness and Ebony fretboard for more high-end presence or “sizzle” that authoritatively cuts through a dense mix.

What does it do?

The Suhr SSH+ bridge humbucker and SSV neck passive humbuckers for the 6-string and the Fishman Fluence Modern active humbuckers produce a wealth of great sounds from squeaky clean to over-the-top distortion and everything in between with character and authority. The Ebony fretboard, the only distinguishing feature from the Original model versions, provides the bright cutting character as well as a smooth and sleek feel for increased speed and ease of string bending.

Couldn’t have asked for anything more.

This happens to be my very first 7 string although I’ve only played a 7 string a few rimes before. I’ve never actually owned one. Personally it felt like a seamless transition for me, the endurNeck just complements the fretting hand in a way like no other. The natural tone from the Fishman Fluence pick ups is really something that requires very less processing to achieve desired results and as for the versatility of the guitar itself, I have absolutely no doubts it would blend seamlessly into any possible genre of music you’re writing. I’ve never been happier and I feel blessed to have finally gotten one after 5 months of being waitlisted. My recommendation? if you get notified it’s in stock, you should pull the trigger. You’ll not regret it. Big cheers to the .strandberg team. I hope you continue to deliver excellent quality guitars forever.

Top not at the top of expectations

Very good quality instrument but for a 2500€ Guitar i was expecting a more figured top I know all the guitars can be retourned within two weeks from delivery but, because of the all thing of Corona virus going on I couldn't be certain to have my Guitar back so i kept this One, eitherway I'm Happy with It and plays like none of my guitars, unique appoint that I can make Is that the 7 string version with the tremolo seems more stiff than the 6 string because i couldn't get It fluttering the way i wanted and experencied with a 6 string strandberg, I also know that the bridge has 3 positions and i'm on the softer One, the lower one, Just something i think that You should let the people know on the website. Just another little thing Is that Is not declaired on the website, in coil split/tap mode, what bobins are used, of the inner or outer coils due to the fact that fishman offers both combinations. I'm done with appointments, Hope You like the review, always Remember that I bought this instrument cause i thought It was the best one and still thinking that way. Best regards and keep playing ;)

Jonathan, great to hear that you are happy with the guitar, but sorry to hear that you are not entirely satisfied with the service you received. Sometimes manufacturing issues do not show up until the guitar has been in use for some time, and these were taken care of under the warranty at no cost to you. The second matter of the threads is natural and has no impact on functionality, as discussed.

Pure Greatness

Not much to say except, it is by far the most comfortable and smoothest playing guitar I have ever played. Beyond this the quality down to the feel of the knobs and switches is top notch, and I would go to say I prefer the .strandberg tremolo system over Floyd Rose any day now.

Unique Qualities

Anatomy of a Strandberg

There are many design elements and factors that comprise a .strandberg* guitar. Each aspect - from the materials and components used to the ergonomic design features - has been carefully thought out and implemented to produce a guitar that is light weight, easy to play and has a big woody organic sound. Explore these different aspects that set a .strandberg* guitar apart from the rest.

headless_design_bullet_round

Versatile Body Shape

The body shape provides multiple seated playing positions for maximum comfort and versatility.

scale_lengths_bullet_round

Scale Lengths Adapted to You

A multi-scale design allows your wrist to remain relaxed throughout the range of play. A longer scale length for the heavier strings provide better tone, and shorter in the thinner strings better playability.

EndrureNeck strandberg guitar

Patented Neck Profile

Our patented EndurNeck™ profile promotes a more correct playing position. The result: you can play longer, faster, better and avoid injury.

carbon_fiber_bullet_round

Space Age Materials

Our hunt for great tone and low weight led us to using aircraft grade aluminium and carbon fiber for maximum performance.

headless_design_bullet_round

Proprietary Hardware

The custom .strandberg* hardware is a vital contributor to the tone of the instrument. Lightweight aircraft grade aluminium and tight coupling of components ensure that nothing prevents the strings' vibrations from entering the body.
