OVERVIEW

Over-the-top brutal, yet musically articulate and expressive.

Visually sleek and futuristic, the Metal model was designed for over-the-top brutal metal sounds that are still articulate and expressive as well as being versatile for various other genres of music.

The model name doesn’t mean it was meant for metal only. Underneath the metallic gloss finish, the body consists of Basswood for full-sounding midrange that is mated with plain Maple top to provide a fast transient attack and high-end brilliance. The neck features roasted Maple neck with Ebony fretboard for a fast and sleek feel as well as a meaty yet cutting sound.

The Metal models all feature the innovative Fishman Fluence pickups that combine the best of what active pickups offer with the sound and feel of passive pickups, making it an incredibly versatile instrument for many other genres besides metal. Includes gig bag.

    Comments about Strandberg Boden Metal 7 Electric Guitar:

    Sounds good, plays ok (a little more fretbuzz than a guitar this price should have). There are some issues with this guitar. I returned it to MF, so if you're ordering on here, be aware that W1707046 should be a B-stock at best, and likely should have been sent back.

    Issues:
    * Rough area where the fingerboard meets the neck at the 5th fret, bass side
    * Scratchy feeling neck finish (not forgiveable on any guitar, much less a guitar with such a focus on playability/technique, much less one at this price)
    * The areas at the top of the neck where the ebony/maple join, below the headpieces, is generally not very clean
    * Headpieces spacing is off vs. nut. Thankfully as there is no length of string to speak of there this is unlikely to cause tuning issues, but it's unsightly
    * Chrome hardware had some weird finish wear/markings, some of it went away when being cleaned, some not
    * Fingerboard had smudge marks, though I feel a good cleaning would fix this

    I'd stay away from it. A guitar isn't defined by its hype (brand, pickups). It needs to deliver.
    This did not.
