Strandberg Boden NX 8 Richard Henshall Edition

Serial Number: C2205207
Weight: 5 lbs 7 oz

Designed and developed with Richard Henshall of the trailblazing prog-metal outfit Haken from London, UK, the Boden NX 8 Richard Henshall Edition is as unique, inspiring, and versatile as the band’s kaleidoscopic amalgamation of progressive, extreme metal, jazz, classical, electronic, and rock that has garnered a growing diehard international fanbase. Featuring a chambered Basswood body with Maple top and Ziricote veneer, Maple neck with Birdseye Maple fretboard with the special “Hen” inlay on the first fret, custom wood knobs, angled Lundgren M8 humbuckers with a push-pull coil tap tone knob, this instrument stands out from the crowd aesthetically, conceptually, and sonically. From pulverizing metal riffs to searing leads and sparkling clean single-coil rhythm to warm fat-bodied humbucker tones, the Boden 8 Richard Henshall can pummel and scream or purr while responding with uncompromising accuracy and sensitivity to your most aggressive pick attack or the most subtle nuances of your playing.
