The pinnacle of the highly acclaimed Boden design, the Boden Neck-Thru is a state-of-the-art evolution that will take your playing and music to new realms of musical creativity. The vaunted ergonomic features are further expanded and refined to provide unfettered access to the high registered of the fretboard, allowing you to explore new techniques and sounds with incredible comfort and ease.

The Boden Metal NT features chambered Alder body wings, solid Maple top, Roasted Maple neck-thru-body, and Ebony fretboard for a tight yet rich and full-sounding tone that can cut through any mix with a focused punch that is characteristic of the neck-thru-body construction. The new .strandberg* Metal passive pickups in HH configuration provide a wide range of modern high-gain humbucker and sparkling clean single-coil sounds with a unique passive character, making them suitable for virtually all playing styles and musical genres.

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 Metal NT can cover any musical style from the most brutal metal rhythms and searing leads to sparkling clean arpeggiated chords and warm jazzy tones.

Besides the amazing playability and comfort, the Boden Metal NT 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. Basswood’s warm and full midrange made it ideal for the chambered body wings. Combined with the 5-ply carbon fiber reinforced Roasted Maple neck-thru-body, solid Maple top and Ebony fretboard which provide rigidity, focus and cutting brilliance, the Metal NT has an exceptionally balanced acoustic character. The .strandberg* Metal ceramic magnet bridge and neck humbuckers with a special 5-way wiring offer an extremely wide range of great modern and traditional humbucker and single-coil sounds.

The Metal NT 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 Metal NT defines where the electric guitar is going in the New Millennium.
