Strandberg Boden Standard NX 6 Tremolo Headless Multi-Scale Guitar, Red
If you asked us to show you a guitar that we thought looked the most like it came from a technologically-advanced society from the future, a Strandberg would most likely be our pick - in particular, another stellar Boden Standard NX 6. This time, a tremolo bridge-equipped variant with an HSS pickup set for a great balance of vintage and modern tones.
The gorgeous red finish is somewhere between cherry red and blood red, and it looks visually striking against the quartersawn maple neck and fretboard as well as the blacked-out pickups and hardware. The HSS pickups on this one are Strandberg's take on the S-style guitar tone and sound fantastic. We find it to be a great blend of vintage tone with the futuristic playability that Strandberg has to offer - and you still have a robust humbucker in the bridge for powerful sounds.
Strandberg has been long known for making excellent headless guitars that are absolutely effortless to play, and while yes, "effortless playability" is used to describe many of the great guitars we've had here at the shop, it especially is true for Strandberg because of the deliberate improvements they have made to ergonomics, weight distribution, neck and body relationship, and more down to the smallest of details.
This trem-equipped, HSS Boden Standard NX 6 is no exception, and is definitely worth checking out!
The original Boden Standard Series guitars were developed to provide the same key features that our guitars are acclaimed for but with solidbody construction, our own design pickups, and figured Maple top veneers to reduce costs and offer a line that delivers outstanding value as well as topflight performance. The solidbody has a distinctively different kind of sound and response than the chambered body and it isn’t better or worse: just different and a matter of personal preference.
The Boden Standard NX was developed to provide great majority of the premium features found on such models as the Original, Prog, and Fusion but with a solid American Basswood body, Flame Maple veneers and our own specially designed pickups. The result is a lineup of guitars that provides all of the distinctive characteristics and key features that the Boden guitars are known for at a superb value for the working musician. All Standard models feature Quartersawn Maple necks and fretboards with the EndurNeck profile, Luminlay™ face and side dots, Jescar stainless steel frets and the innovative .strandberg* EGS Rev 7 hardware as on all of our NX model guitars.
The combination of Basswood with Maple neck/fretboard is one of the most popular electric guitar wood combinations used by many top guitar builders and artists alike, producing an ideal balance between warmth, punch, brilliance and sustain for an extremely well-rounded sound that’ll excel at virtually any musical genre or playing style. Our pickups were custom designed and wound to our specifications to bring out the best acoustic properties of the woods and hardware for a very balanced and rich sound through any amplification system.
The Boden Standard NX models are for players who do not require high-end features such as chambered body, 4-A grade figured top/fretboard, and name brand pickups but require the same premium look, sound and features that provide the performance they need as well as long-lasting value. Like our Classic NX models, the solidbody construction offers a different type of feel and sound than the chambered-body guitars but still delivers the trademark .strandberg* clarity, articulation, sustain, and warm organic tonal character that our guitars are known for.
