Presenting the all new Boden Original NX 7, this one in Charcoal Black.
The Boden Original NX is the updated version of the original design, refined and perfected for the present and the future.
Based on the first concept prototypes with the original specifications, the Original can be deemed the model that started a revolution in modern guitar design and takes the electric guitar into the 21st century. Exceptionally light in weight and scientifically engineered for comfort and to reduce tension in your arms, the Original NX models feature a chambered Sassafras body with solid Maple top and premium grade Flame Maple or Quilted Maple veneer and a Maple neck and Birdseye Maple fretboard to produce a lively acoustic resonance you can feel in your hands and against your body.
The individual bridge pieces machined out of aircraft-grade aluminum play a vital role in the Boden’s unique acoustic character – clear, organic, and balanced with a fast and articulate pick attack. The new Rev 7 hardware bridge pieces feature a self-locking mechanism for the saddles for improved robustness and tone transfer as well as quick and easy string action adjustments.
The unique hardware coupled with the Sassafras and Maple woods combines to provide a sound that is at once warm and woody as well as tight and punchy and which is amazingly responsive to the most minute subtleties of your touch. You will hear details in your playing that you have not heard before and which you can shape to bring out all the individual characteristics of your unique playing style.
Electronics-wise, Original NX models are equipped with the Suhr passive pickups (SSH+ in the bridge and SSV in the neck) for the 6-string model and the Fishman active pickups (the Fluence Modern ceramic in the bridge and the alnico in the neck) for the 7- and 8-string models to deliver the natural acoustic characteristics of the guitar faithfully and powerfully to your favorite amplification systems while offering the sonic flexibility to suit virtually all musical genres and playing styles.
The EndurNeck™ is a patented neck profile that provides many benefits:
- By utilizing flat surfaces rather than a round profile, it provides a more restful grip for the thumb
- Your hand is much stronger when gripping something thick than when gripping something thin, and the EndurNeck™ uses this fact in its design.
- Due to the way that it is designed, it is experienced as comfortable whether you are used to a thick or thin neck
- Chord playing at the far end of the neck is made easier
- Soloing and fret access in general at the near end of the neck is made easier
- The curved rear section and the angles of the surfaces interact to
- encourage a more correct playing position and a straighter wrist
– The result is less stress on muscles, joints and tendons, which lets you play more relaxed, with less fatigue, which results in less risk of injury and better playing
The EndurNeck was invented by Ola Strandberg and is featured exclusively on .strandberg* instruments
