The pinnacle of the Boden design, the Boden Prog Neck-Thru features incredible upper register access and unparalleled playing comfort while providing extreme tonal versatility to cover virtually any playing style of musical genre. Chambered Swamp Ash body wings, solid Flame Maple top, Roasted Maple neck-thru-body, and Ebony fretboard are seamlessly combined in a visually striking design for a clear, balanced and full-sounding tone that can cut through any mix with a focused punch that is characteristic of the neck-thru-body construction. The Prog model humbuckers in HH configuration provide a plethora of high-gain humbucker and crystal clean single-coil sounds with distinct musicality that are suitable for virtually all playing styles and musical genres.


WHAT MAKES IT SPECIAL?
The neck-thru-body design and construction facilitates unparalleled playability in the upper register of the fretboard while providing a unique punchy tone with improved sustain. Light weight and superbly balanced for hours of playing comfort, the extended EndurNeck profile across the entire length of the neck means the benefits of the design is maximized to further enhance your playing. Visually, the instrument is strikingly sleek and refined with an ideal balance between forward-thinking innovation and time-tested traditional. Tonally, the Original Neck-Thru can cover any musical style from aggressive shred and chunky metal rhythm to sparkling clean funk and earthy classic rock.

WHAT DOES IT DO?
Besides the amazing playability and comfort, the Boden Prog Neck-Thru delivers a wide palette of musical sounds with a distinct sonic character due to its neck-thru-body construction. Compared to the bolt-on, the sound is punchier and more focused with enhanced sustain. The woods were carefully selected and matched to maximize the natural acoustic characteristics of the design and construction. Swamp Ash’s punchy high-midrange complements the chambered body wings. Combined with the 5-ply carbon fiber reinforced Roasted Maple neck-thru-body, solid Flame Maple top and Ebony fretboard which provide rigidity, focus and upper midrange brilliance, the Prog Neck-Thru has an exceptionally balanced acoustic character. The .strandberg* Prog bridge and neck humbuckers with special 5-way wiring delivers a full spectrum of great humbucker and single-coil sounds.

WHO IS IT FOR?
The Prog Neck-Thru is for the advanced and uncompromising musician who requires the ultimate in performance, playability and sonic versatility. The forward-looking instrument reflects the vision of an artist who seeks to balance the past with the future to explore new musical territories, going well beyond what has been achieved in the past. Looking to break out of the classic/vintage rut? The Prog Neck-Thru defines where the electric guitar is going in the New Millennium.

HEADLESS
By removing weight from the headstock, your guitar can be made very light and yet balanced. You can play with greater comfort for longer.

VERSATILE BODY SHAPE
The body shape provides multiple seated playing positions for maximum comfort and versatility.

SCALE LENGTHS ADAPTED TO YOU
A multi-scale design allows your wrist to remain relaxed throughout the range of play. A longer scale length for the heavier strings provide better tone, and shorter in the thinner strings better playability.

PATENTED NECK PROFILE
The patented EndurNeck profile promotes a more correct playing position. The result: you can play longer, faster, better and avoid injury.

SPACE AGE MATERIALS
.strandberg*'s hunt for great tone and low weight led us to using aircraft grade aluminium and carbon fiber for maximum performance.

PROPRIETARY HARDWARE
The custom .strandberg* hardware is a vital contributor to the tone of the instrument. Lightweight aircraft grade aluminium and tight coupling of components ensure that nothing prevents the strings' vibrations from entering the body.
