Presenting the all new Boden Prog NX6 6-string, this one in Charcoal Black.
Very similar to the groundbreaking Strandberg Boden Original NX model, the new Boden Prog NX is essentially a tremolo version with Richlite fretboard for a slicker feel and a slightly more cutting tone. Exceptionally light in weight and scientifically engineered for comfort and to reduce tension in your arms, the Prog features a chambered Sassafras body with solid Maple top and premium grade Flame or Quilted Maple veneer and Maple neck with Richlite fretboard for great acoustic resonance with more bite in the highs.
The new EGS Pro Rev7 tremolo system machined out of aircraft grade aluminum plays a major part in the Boden’s unique acoustic sonic character as well as providing an extremely smooth and responsive tremolo usage. The new Rev 7 hardware bridge piece features a self-locking mechanism for the saddles for improved robustness and tone transfer as well as quick and easy string action adjustments. Implementing a traditional fulcrum tremolo design with the rout for the tremolo springs, the Prog NX models exhibit a more “open” sonic character than the fixed bridge Original.
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, the Prog NX 6 model is equipped with the Suhr passive pickups (SSH+ in the bridge and SSV in the neck) and the Prog NX 7 is equipped with the innovative Fishman active pickups (the Fluence Modern ceramic in the bridge and the alnico in the neck) 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
