    Comments about Strandberg Boden Original 8 Electric Guitar:

    From my aggravation of there not being a review when i got this guitar, i am deciding to write one. "But theres other reviews online...." whatever, but in my defense, they are only about the boden OS 8 and not the original 8. This guitar is amazing. Easily the best i have ever heard, played, and held. This being a $2000+ guitar, it really holds up to its price point. The body design is really comfortable in any position. I was very skeptical about the neck before i got this and i have to say, Ola Strandberg has a very creative mind. The shape really makes your hand feel comfortable anywhere on the neck. The fishman fluence pickups really shine on this guitar. They are very articulate and clear, but when you put a good distortion tone on top of them, they really deliver. I love the alnico neck pickup. It sounds great for tapping and sweep arpegios. Also, the fluences DO come with the push-pull capabilities on both the tone and volume pots. The output jack is very solid and it makes the cable lock in, that is the only way i can put it, once its in, its not coming out. The action came perfectly setup, nice and low for you shreddy type people. Although, if you want to keep that nice, slinky feeling with the custom strings that it comes with, i would recommend getting Strandberg's custom 8 string set. The guitar is very pleasing aesthetically. Its a very light, but solid, instrument. The strandberg case is awesome. Even though its a gig bag, nothing is happening to your $2145 guitar.
