Boden Metal 8

DD D D DD Djent and beyond

The METAL 8Ā is THE extended rangeĀ metal guitar for 8 string players around the world. The woods and pick ups selected give unrivaled clarity and punch yet are able to clean up nicely even on the lowest stringsĀ providing the type of clean tones required by metal players throughout the globe.

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 beenĀ reduced without sacrificing an ounce of tone. This combined with coil splits on the two Fishman Fluence high output pick ups and you have some amazing tone variation, though do not be misledĀ … this guitar is called The Metal for a reason.

What makes Strandbergs 8 strings so easy to play isĀ 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. This is especially beneficial for players new to 8 stringed guitars as many other guitars simply add extra strings to a normal C or D shaped neck.

Then the frets which are fan fretted. ThisĀ isn’tĀ done so for appearance, the subtle fanning gives greater accuracy toĀ intonation without making notes strange to play.

The power and low end gruntĀ of this guitar will effortlessly push an amp to drive in just the right way for the sweetest lead tones all with the ability to get to those notes faster and smoother than ever before.
