The original design, refined and perfected for the present and the future
Based on the first concept prototypes with the original specifications, the Original can be deemed the model that started a revolution in modern guitar design and takes the electric guitar into the 21st century. Exceptionally light in weight and scientifically engineered for comfort and to reduce tension in your arms, the Original NX models feature a chambered Sassafras body with solid Maple top and premium grade Flame Maple or Quilted Maple veneer and a Maple neck and Birdseye Maple fretboard to produce a lively acoustic resonance you can feel in your hands and against your body.
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 Rev 7 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 Sassafras and Maple woods combine to provide a sound that is at once warm 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, Original NX models are equipped with Fishman active pickups (the Fluence Modern ceramic in the bridge and the alnico in the neck) for the 7- and 8-string models to deliver the natural acoustic characteristics of the guitar faithfully and powerfully to your favorite amplification systems while offering the sonic flexibility to suit virtually all musical genres and playing styles.
