The "NeXt" Evolution of Strandberg's Flagship Boden When Strandberg's Boden model first hit the scene just over a decade ago, few could predict the impact these headless guitars would have on the guitar community. Fast forward to today, and the Boden is going stronger than ever, with several models and configurations to choose from to fit your playing needs. The Strandberg Boden Original NX 6 Electric Guitar builds on the blueprint of its predecessors, with new and improved hardware, exquisite electronics, and even sustainable materials that deliver an unequivocally boutique experience. The Boden Original NX 6's swamp ash body is joined by maple for the top, neck, and fingerboard, familiar to the hands and ears of previous players and comfortable enough for anyone to jump right in and get to work. Two supercharged Suhr pickups shoot the Boden Original NX 6 to the top of its class — these PAF-style humbuckers fully deliver the trademark fullness and warmth of vintage pickups. Throw in a hard-working EGS Rev 7 fixed bridge along with stainless-steel frets, and the Strandberg Boden Original NX 6 solidifies its place as one of Strandberg's highest performing Bodens to date.
Sweet-sounding tonewoods of the highest quality

Before you even plug in, strum a few chords and pick through a few licks on the Boden Original NX 6. The resulting sound is nothing short of stellar, courtesy of high-performing tonewoods delivering the perfect combination of phenomenal organic tone, ergonomic design, and effortless playability. To achieve just that, the Boden Original NX 6 starts with a swamp ash body topped with maple, pumping out laser-focused sounds with good sustain and resonance. Snappy maple was chosen for the neck, outfitted with carbon fiber reinforcement rods for long-lasting durability that stands up to the drastic temperature and humidity changes commonly experienced when touring. Rounding out these top-tier tonewoods is a smooth-as-glass bird's-eye maple fingerboard, guaranteed to send your fretting hand from head(less) to heel in no time.

Optimized with superb Suhr pickups

To give the Boden Original NX 6 its distinct sound, Strandberg equipped it with a pair of highly coveted Suhr pickups. Loaded in the bridge is an SSH+, a tried-and-true high-output humbucker that's fully prepared for everything from dirt-tinged prog licks to destructive deathcore and more. The SSV humbucker's crystal clarity and smooth tone are ideal for the neck position and pair perfectly with the SSH+ — whatever sonic flavor you require, the Boden Original NX 6's Suhr pickups are a surefire way of achieving the results you seek.

Balanced headless design

The Boden Original NX 6's headless design removes mass from the headstock for lower weight and improved balance, so you can play marathon sets in total comfort. On the other end, Strandberg's custom bridge hardware makes an important contribution to the tone of the instrument. Made of lightweight aircraft-grade aluminum, the EGS Rev 7 fixed bridge's tight component coupling ensures that all the strings' vibrations are optimally transferred to the tonewoods.

EndurNeck profile and bolt-on design for comfort and playability

At first glance, Strandberg's acclaimed EndurNeck profile is sure to draw a few questions with its unique shape. Here at Irvine Art & Music, guitarists will all tell you the same thing: the EndurNeck feels even better than it looks. The carbon fiber-reinforced neck sports a rear-shafted trapezoid shape, possessing incredible comfort and noticeable stability. Almost magically, you will feel your grip significantly relax when playing an EndurNeck, leading to longer playing times and fewer injuries. The Boden Original NX 6's bolt-on construction, paired with a deep double-cut design, offers easy access to the upper register for increased playability and a more focused punch — a welcome feature uncommon for many other bolt-on guitars.

Multi-scale bird's-eye maple fingerboard

The fingerboard of a Strandberg is instantly recognizable for its multi-scale configuration that assigns each string a unique scale length. This allows low strings to intonate better at high tension and makes bending high strings a breeze. The Boden Original NX 6's EndurNeck is capped by a 20-inch-radius bird's-eye maple fingerboard with a 25–25.5-inch scale length. Not to mention, its 24 jumbo frets are made from stainless steel — a player-favorite fret material for its incredible resistance to wear over time.
