The Boden Standard

Family headless guitar photo boden

What makes it special?

The Boden Standard was developed to provide great majority of the premium features found on such models as the Original, Prog, and Fusion but with a solid American Basswood body, Quilted or Flame Maple veneers on a solid 5 mm Maple top and our own specially designed pickups. The result is a lineup of guitars that provides all of the distinctive characteristics and key features that the Boden guitars are known for at a superb value for the working musician. All Standard models feature Roasted Maple necks and fretboards with the EndurNeck profile, Luminlay face and side dots, Jescar stainless steel frets and the innovative .strandberg* hardware as on all of our guitars.

What does it do?

The combination of Basswood with a solid Maple top and Maple neck/fretboard is considered the “Holy Grail” of electric guitar wood combinations by many top guitar builders and artists alike, producing an ideal balance between warmth, punch, brilliance and sustain for an extremely well-rounded sound that’ll excel at virtually any musical genre or playing style. Our pickups were custom designed and wound to our specifications to bring out the best acoustic properties of the woods and hardware for a very balanced and rich sound through any amplification system.

Who is it for?

The Standard models are for players who do not require high-end features such as chambered body, 4-A grade figured top/fretboard, and name brand pickups but require the same premium look, sound and features that provide the performance they need as well as long-lasting value. Like our Classic models, the solidbody construction offers a different type of feel and sound than the chambered-body guitars but still delivers the trademark .strandberg* clarity, articulation, sustain, and warm woody character that our guitars have become known for.

Boden Standard 6 Tremolo

I'm new to guitars, but this guitar hands down feels the best to play. I tried Gibson, Fender, PRS, and though I loved some of those guitars, however, Strandberg stood head and shoulders above the rest. The guitar looks simply amazing, and has unparalleled playability.

Kudos to creative innovation and vision

Hi Ola, thanks, excited receiving guitar (finally - as FedEx "lost" it for 8 days) just yesterday and playing late into the night. I'm a gigging semi-pro, have played everything over past 45+ years. Here are my initial observations: 1. Overall beautifully crafted, lovely dark toasted color neck. Not sure even where the refurb issues are? Some slightly rough edges around back trem cavity or? Beautiful guitar. 1. I did put the 3rd spring in as quite soft when even lightly setting my arm on trem, and tweaked truss rod accordingly. Plays very nice+. Interesting middle "lock" position to trem, great for stable tuning. 2. High E doesn't quite ring true open or fretted, maybe something misaligned with bridge saddle? Hopefully no biggie, I'll try installing a new string. The only two slight disappointments (for me): 3. I'm not really a single-coil guy to start with, much prefer HBer in neck but thought to give it a try and can always put in 2nd position. But hmm, I just don't think these pickups are great, they sound quite thin, especially for a high-end brand. The 2nd position is much more out-of-phase tone than fatter HBer. Oh well I'll keep playing around with it, only had it a day! 4. So the biggest issue for me is the small body size - the upper back bout of body is too short for me to comfortably rest my forearm on, I'm finding my arm slips completely behind the back and the bout point and trem then digs into my arm while playing. I'm a tall lanky old guy 6'2" 180lbs, I'm sure this guitar is comfortable for smaller shorter people. It seems the body is a "Medium" and I need an "XL" size :>) It would have been perfect if the back bout extended just another couple inches for a more traditional forearm position against guitar body when playing. And this does have me concerned, as after only a couple hours my arm was really getting sore and uncomfortable. I'll see if I can adjust my stance and hold on it, as I otherwise really am impressed. Whether it ultimately fits me or not, Kudos to you Ola for your creative innovation and vision, exciting to see the next evolution of the guitar - I had to get one! Best regards, Paul Berger

Thanks for your thoughtful comments, Paul! Please do get in touch with our support if you are not able to resolve your high-e issue, which doesn't seem representative at all for our guitars. I am aware of some taller players that experience the same issue as you mention - it's a combination of playing style, height, and position of the guitar. There is not much we can do about that, other than possibly encourage you to try out the Sälen model. It doesn't have an arm bevel at all, which might (counterintuitively) work better for you, since it supports your forearm better. Luckily, replacing pickups is an easy and reasonably affordable way to have more fun with an instrument, so I hope you either warm to them or find options. Regardless, I hope it will bring you much joy and inspiration! (And if it makes you sore long term, please explore other guitar models!) /Ola

The Boden Standard Concept

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

Headless

By removing weight from the headstock, your guitar can be made very light and yet balanced. You can play with greater comfort for longer.

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.
