The Strandberg Boden Original NX 6 Charcoal Black is the next refinement of the original Strandberg design. Building on the success of the original Boden line the Boden NX seeks to retain the magic while improving every little detail. With the same ergonomic design on the body and neck but with new hardware, a more comfortable carving on the body at the neck heel and forearm cut.
The Boden NX also features the new Strandberg Rev7 hardware which offers a tactile, robust feel while also offering quick, easy string height adjustments and improved transfer of tone. Every detail on the NX line has been meticulously designed to improve upon the original Boden line and create a greater playing experience for you, the player!
Features We Love:
Ergonomics have been at the forefront of the Strandberg design ethos since the beginning and it hasn’t stopped improving. Continuing to use the unique Strandberg Endurneck profile which features a flat surface providing a more rested feel for the thumb, and encourages a more correct playing position and a straighter more relaxed wrist. Add to this the newly designed neck heel and you can experience every inch of this unique and comfortable neck. Ergonomics don’t stop there though, the body lends itself to multiple different playing positions and the new forearm carve offers even greater comfort.
After designing such a comfortable guitar it’s only right that the tone is perfected too. The Boden Original NX 6 features a set of Suhr humbuckers. The SSH+ in the bridge is a true high output humbucker offering punch, clarity, and a wealth of warm harmonic midrange content. The SSV neck humbuckers oozes with vintage humbucker tone but refined for the modern day featuring a clarity and definition that is ideal to cut through the mix. Together they provide a unique, versatile tone that not only lets the guitar speak but, pairs perfectly with the design ethos of Strandberg.
Innovation has long been part of the Strandberg brand and as innovative as their hardware has been they still strive to improve with each iteration. Still made from aircraft grade aluminium to retain the unique acoustic sound of the Boden that is; clear, organic, and balanced with a fast and articulate pick attack. The Rev7 hardware also now features a self-locking mechanism in the bridge pieces, this provides a more robust design, improved tone transfer, and serves to make string height adjustments even easier. The newly re-designed hardware coupled with classic tonewoods provides a warm, woody tone, that maintains tightness and punch all while providing a balanced touch sensitive feel.
