Boden Standard NX 8 Charcoal

SKU: BD8CT-21S-M-F-BK

The original Boden Standard Series guitars were developed to provide the same key features that our guitars are acclaimed for but with solidbody construction, our own design pickups, and figured Maple top veneers to reduce costs and offer a line that delivers outstanding value as well as topflight performance. The solidbody has a distinctively different kind of sound and response than the chambered body and it isn’t better or worse: just different and a matter of personal preference.

The Boden Standard NX

What Makes It Special?

The Boden Standard NX 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, Flame Maple veneers 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 Quartersawn Maple necks and fretboards with the EndurNeck profile, Luminlay™ face and side dots, Jescar stainless steel frets and the innovative .strandberg* EGS Rev 7 hardware as on all of our NX model guitars.

What Does It Do?

The combination of Basswood with Maple neck/fretboard is one of the most popular electric guitar wood combinations used 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 Boden Standard NX 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 NX 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 organic tonal character that our guitars are known for.

The original Boden Standard Series guitars were developed to provide the same key features that our guitars are acclaimed for but with solidbody construction, our own design pickups, and figured Maple top veneers to reduce costs and offer a line that delivers outstanding value as well as topflight performance. The solidbody has a distinctively different kind of sound and response than the chambered body and it isn’t better or worse: just different and a matter of personal preference. Over the years, the Boden Standard Series guitars has become our most popular line and now the entire lineup is further improved and refined with the new NX features to take the performance to the next level while maintaining the value that the Standard Series has become known for. The Standard NX models now feature the new neck joint carve and arm cut for improved comfort and playability as well as the EGS Rev 7 hardware that adds robustness, ease of maintenance, and enhanced acoustic tonal character. We designed the highly touted .strandberg* OEM pickups from the ground up and they’ve been wound to our exacting specifications to deliver a wide range of great sounds from vintage clean to over-the-top high-gain distortion to authentically cover virtually any playing style and musical genre. Experience and enjoy the premium .strandberg* features, performance, and tone without the premium price. The Boden Standard NX Series guitars deliver everything that .strandberg* is known for with a sound and feel of its own and provide the professional performance you expect.

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.
