I recently sold my Boden Metal 7 since I was looking for a 7 string with a trem. The Boden Prog 7 answered that call. Until now, its the best instrument I've ever played. After a few hours of getting acquainted with my new friend, I decided to do a short video of me playing a lick from Paul Wardingham's 20 Epic Metal Licks. My 1st impressions: Fishman Fluence pickups sound great, namely in the passive voice (for leads). No tuning issues with trem. Other than a bit of sanding to do on the zeroth fret, the guitar was in pristine shape. Disclaimer: I'm bad when it comes to recording and I'm not that good of a guitar player.
