Exceptional comfort, ergonomics and playability.
The Boden Bass Original was designed to provide exceptional comfort, ergonomics and playability with its lightweight headless construction, multi-scale neck, and the patented EndurNeck neck profile. For the bass player, this is especially important knowing how much a solidbody bass can weigh.
The proprietary hardware is constructed of aircraft grade aluminum that plays a major part in the instrument’s unique woody and organic acoustic character besides reducing the overall weight. Premium materials such as Swamp Ash for the body with solid ¼” Flame Maple top and roasted Maple for the neck and Birdseye Maple for the fretboard and proprietary components along with world class manufacturing processes and techniques are used to produce these instruments of exceptional build quality, workmanship, and reliability.
What does it do?
Besides the striking visual design aesthetics and unmatched ergonomic features, the very best materials, components and craftsmanship combine to provide a bass that is easy to play, reduces fatigue for your hands as well as your back, and which produces stunningly clear yet warm organic sounds that will suit virtually any musical genre and style. Acoustically, the Boden Bass Original is loud, articulate, rich and balanced with strong fundamentals and these characteristics are further enhanced and complemented by the highly acclaimed Nordstrand Zen Blade noiseless single-coil pickups and ultra-flexible 3-band EQ preamp.
