Strandberg Boden True Temperament 6
Boden-6-true-temp-BD6CT-20T-P-F-BN_A.png

When Evolution Met Evolution The Boden range took every aspect of the guitar and looked at what could be improved, this we know. Yes they did indeed improve upon the frets, introducing fan fretting. However when someone came along who offered further innovation Strandberg were very open minded and could see how the True Temperament (TT) system would further evolve their masterpiece. TT is based on the principle of perfect intonation on each and every fret giving players the most perfect notes possible. The system has been picked up and endorsed by many famous players, none more so the mighty Steve Vai. The rest of the guitar is based upon the Boden Fusion which is a guitar for every style, capable of rich clean tone up to roaring metal and rock perfection via a lovely pair of Suhr pick ups. For many fan fretting was a step too far until they tried it and realised how natural it felt and TT will be much the same ... don't overthink it! Bends and vibrato feel as natural as ever, as a boy once said "It is not the spoon which bends, it is only yourself!" You must give this system and in particular the Strandberg Boden TT a go as soon as you have a chance, let us know what you think of our interactive demo online on Facebook and Instagram.
