The pinnacle of the highly acclaimed Boden Metal design

The Boden ‘Metal’ Neckthrough

What makes it special?

The neck-thru-body design and construction facilitates unparalleled playability in the upper register of the fretboard while providing a unique punchy tone with improved sustain. Light weight and superbly balanced for hours of playing comfort, the extended EndurNeck profile across the entire length of the neck means the benefits of the design is maximized to further enhance your playing. Visually, the instrument is strikingly sleek and refined with an ideal balance between forward-thinking innovation and time-tested traditional. Tonally, the Metal NT can cover any musical style from the most brutal metal rhythms and searing leads to sparkling clean arpeggiated chords and warm jazzy tones.

What does it do?

Besides the amazing playability and comfort, the Boden Metal NT delivers a wide palette of musical sounds with a distinct sonic character due to its neck-thru-body construction. Compared to the bolt-on, the sound is punchier and more focused with enhanced sustain. The woods were carefully selected and matched to maximize the natural acoustic characteristics of the design and construction. Alder’s warm and full midrange made it ideal for the chambered body wings. Combined with the 5-ply carbon fiber reinforced Roasted Maple neck-thru-body, solid Maple top and Ebony fretboard which provide rigidity, focus and cutting brilliance, the Metal NT has an exceptionally balanced acoustic character. The Fishman Fluence Modern ceramic magnet bridge and alnico magnet neck humbuckers with dual push-pull pots offer an extremely wide range of great modern and traditional humbucker and single-coil sounds.
