The 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 top flight 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.

Specification

The body consists of solid American Basswood with quarter-inch Maple top capped with Quilted Maple for a balanced and punchy tone that is superbly complemented by the roasted Maple neck and fretboard. One of the classic wood combinations espoused by top custom guitar builders and world class artists alike, Basswood/Maple body and Maple neck/fretboard combo provides the ideal balance between warmth with full-bodied richness and strong high-midrange with sweet singing treble.

The new Strandberg OEM pickups were designed and wound to our exacting specifications to deliver a wide range of great sounds from vintage clean to over-the-top high-gain distortion. The figured Maple veneers ensure a stunning look while the solid Maple top underneath works in conjunction with the body back wood to add brilliance, tightness and punch. Overall, the Standard Series guitars are no-compromise instruments you can count on to deliver the performance you expect from a Strandberg.

Took a chance buying before trying, had played a Strandberg a few times so knew a bit about the neck and feel etc. but not a lot of time spent with one. Very glad I did. It's very light, great to play and had all the features ( Bass wood body, Maple Cap, roasted maple neck, fanned frets, tremolo, Bengal finish), that I wanted, I play a lot thru practicing, playing live and teaching for hours everyday so thought it would be a good ergonomic guitar, especially for carrying into the places I teach. Sounds wonderful, surprised how "Sratty" it can be, very very clear tone due to the lightness of the body and rings out remarkably well. There really is more tone in lighter woods so it's everything a heavy Les Paul isn't. In the wood tone versus pick up debate I firmly believe the P.U.s are vastly more influential in terms of sound, and these are great. Custom made for this model apparently and Strandberg's own. I may well go for Suhr P.U.s in the future but I'm very pleased with these now and there is almost non existent single coil hum. Three weeks into playing this and I'm still excited by this guitar; when played with the lower cut out on your thigh it feels like cheating it's that comfortable and mimics the exact position I hold the guitar while playing standing up. This model not available from Strandberg at the mo so feel like I got the last one available in the country (Maybe even the World!) It was a bit pricey for an Indonesian made guitar I suppose, as it's in the price range of a Custom American Strat BUT it's still cheaper and better designed than a new Gibson Les Paul or SG for example. If there was one downside I'd say it is too light when compared to anything else and it's this feature that has taken a few weeks to get used to. This has had a positive result in that I'm gradually relaxing my whole attitude to posture and I've also started to play with a classical foot stool under the right foot, so relaxing my shoulder/neck area a lot more. This was one of the flimsy rationales I was using to convince myself I needed another guitar and luckily it's totally working out. In conclusion Strandberg are bringing something genuinely innovative and special into the guitar world, Buy one, Buy one, Buy one, Buy one. Then get a seven string.
