Seven-String guitars are certainly not the norm but that might be about to change. We know you metal-heads love your extra strings and, when it comes to the Boden Standard 7 from Strandberg Guitars, it’s not hard to see why.
From the bold design to the Strandberg high-spec pick-ups, it’s obvious that this guitar was built for metal.
But is it ready to hit the stage?
The Strandberg Boden Standard line are some of the most innovative guitars being made today. Just take a look at those gorgeous fanned frets and you’ll see that this is an instrument that’s not afraid to be different. Featuring a solid body, a beautiful Maple top veneer, and an overall aesthetic that can only be described as ‘eye-catching’ the Boden Standard 7 really is something special.
As if all that wasn’t enough, these guitars retail for around $2000, which really is great value for a guitar like this. But is it right for you?
Do you want to own a lightweight, seven-string guitar? Do you want a guitar that brings out the kind of precision lead that most players can only dream of? Do you want a guitar that will whisper ‘come play me’ from across the room every time you see it?
Okay, we’re not so sure about that last part, but you still have to admit this is an incredible axe.
Or maybe you disagree? Maybe you think it’s overpriced? Or you care more about sound than style?
At the end of the day, it’s not up to us to decide which guitar is right for you. That choice rests in your hands.
