The Metal NX models provide much more than a sleek exterior and super slick playability. Underneath the futuristic look is a tone machine crafted of the finest tonewoods to deliver an organic and woody yet pulverizing high-gain tones for today’s most demanding metal genres. The chambered American Basswood body coupled with solid quarter-inch thick Maple top produces a thick and full-bodied midrange along with a deep yet tight low-end. The Maple neck with Richlite fretboard adds brilliance along with a sharp edge to cut through the densest mix.
The individual bridge pieces machined out of aircraft grade aluminum play a vital role in the Boden’s unique acoustic character – clear, organic, and balanced with a fast and articulate pick attack. The new Rev7 hardware bridge pieces feature a self-locking mechanism for the saddles for improved robustness and tone transfer as well as quick and easy string action adjustments. The unique hardware coupled with the Basswood and Maple woods with the Richlite fretboard combine to provide a sound that is at once rich and woody as well as tight and punchy and which is amazingly responsive to the most minute subtleties of your touch. You will hear details in your playing that you have not heard before and which you can shape to bring out all the individual characteristics of your unique playing style.
Electronics-wise, the 6-string Metal NX model has been updated with Suhr™ Aldrich passive pickups while the 7- and 8-string models are equipped with the Fishman active pickups (the Fluence Modern ceramic in the bridge and the alnico in the neck) to deliver the natural acoustic characteristics of the guitar with powerful authority to your amplification systems. The Fishman wiring also provides single-coil and Voice 1/2 modes for added flexibility to suit virtually all musical genres and playing styles.
