Strandberg Boden Original NT Neck Through 6 String
The pinnacle of the highly acclaimed Boden design, the Boden Neck-Thru is a state-of-the-art evolution that will take your playing and music to new realms of musical creativity. The vaunted ergonomic features are further expanded and refined to provide unfettered access to the high registered of the fretboard, allowing you to explore new techniques and sounds with incredible comfort and ease.
The Boden Original Neck-Thru features chambered Swamp Ash body wings, solid Flame Maple top, Roasted Maple neck-thru-body, and Roasted Birdseye Maple fretboard for a clear, balanced and full-sounding tone that can cut through any mix with a focused punch that is characteristic of the neck-thru-body construction. Our new Original model pickups developed in collaboration with highly-respected pickup designer Michael Frank in HH configuration provide a plethora of high-gain humbucker and crystal clean single-coil sounds with distinct musicality that are suitable for virtually all playing styles and musical genres.
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 Original Neck-Thru can cover any musical style from aggressive shred and chunky metal rhythm to sparkling clean funk and earthy classic rock.
WHAT DOES IT DO?
Besides the amazing playability and comfort, the Boden Original Neck-Thru 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. Swamp Ash’s punchy high-midrange complements the chambered body wings. Combined with the 5-ply carbon fiber reinforced Roasted Maple neck-thru-body, solid Flame Maple top and Roasted Birdseye Maple fretboard which provide rigidity, focus and upper midrange brilliance, the Original Neck-Thru has an exceptionally balanced acoustic character. The .strandberg* Original bridge and neck humbuckers with special 5-way wiring delivers a full spectrum of great humbucker and single-coil sounds.
WHO IS IT FOR?
The Original Neck-Thru is for the advanced and uncompromising musician who requires the ultimate in performance, playability and sonic versatility. The forward-looking instrument reflects the vision of an artist who seeks to balance the past with the future to explore new musical territories, going well beyond what has been achieved in the past.
