Classic Strandberg Sound and Feel at a Great Price

With their Boden Standard NX 8 electric guitar, Strandberg has set a new bar for pro-quality instruments at an economical price. Though sporting many of the primary components of Strandberg's high-level axes, the Boden Standard NX 8 features a solidbody construction and flame maple veneer, keeping things low in cost yet high on performance. The manufacturer's own OEM humbuckers give the Boden Standard NX 8 its wide-ranging tone, one that's equally fit for low-gain applications as well as fully saturated sonic decimation. Throw in a hard-working EGS Rev 7 fixed bridge along with stainless steel frets, and the Strandberg Boden Standard NX 8 earns its spot in any discerning guitarist's stable. 

High-performing tonewoods from head(less) to heel

Though priced to fit comfortably into the working musician's budget, Strandberg made sure to equip the Boden Standard NX 8 with top-notch tonewoods throughout for professional sound and feel at a steal. It all starts with an American basswood body, a wood prized by many of today's top manufacturers for its perfect balance of warmth, power, bite, and sustain, while a luscious flame maple veneer adds a dose of visual elegance. Move further up this incredible instrument, and its quartersawn maple neck and matching fingerboard are sure to please — Irvine Art & Music guitarists commonly cite Strandberg necks and fingerboards as a constant favorite thanks to their silky-smooth feel and optimized ergonomics. Everything is constructed to Strandberg's incredibly high and exacting standards, ensuring the Boden Standard NX 8 is a road- and studio-ready workhorse that won't break the bank. 

Original OEM humbuckers deliver wide-ranging tone

To give the Boden Standard NX 8 its versatile voice, Strandberg went with a pair of their in-house-designed OEM humbuckers. These pickups are constructed with the same care and accuracy as all Strandberg's offerings, ensuring a top-quality tone in all settings. As for the sound? OEM humbuckers dish out everything from squeaky cleans to gut-punching grind and everything in between — the Boden Standard NX 8 is a solid go-to choice for genre hoppers or anyone in need of a dependable, high-performing machine.
