Boden Classic 8

The 8 String gorilla dressed in a Tuxedo 

The Classic 8 is for those who like to hit the low end hard but require a little more fidelity in their sound. The Classic 8 obviously has the ability to punch an extended range hole through a granite wall however the two Strandberg humbucking pick ups which split pair in parallel and series to create a wealth on tone variation. This guitar can achieve tones from all walks of musical life and deserves the name extended range more so than many others. 

The Strandberg* Boden range is very likely unlike anything you’ve played before, yet somehow Strandberg have improved on what’s familiar in almost every way. 

By honing the way the guitars resonate, the weight has been reduced without sacrificing an ounce of tone.

With careful consideration of how we play differently at various parts of the fretboard the specialised neck carve adapts our hands to more easily reach those harder to reach notes effortlessly both low down and high up the neck.

Then the frets which are fan fretted. This isn’t done so for appearance, the subtle fanning gives greater accuracy to intonation without making notes strange to play. 

The true extended range guitar for the player who wants it all in one place.
