    Not alot to say here. You have seen'er around.

    I got this in from Germany a few days ago. Its nice to see it back in its home state. Those woods hit me right in the feels when I opened it up. It was like getting a new puppy. So delicate.

    And it's very light, not much heavier than the Strandberg I had, and far, far more balanced. The neck would dive with the Strandy, not here. And its funny, you think it would be the opposite with that butcher knife head stock. This is the most immaculately crafted guitar I've ever seen in person. Plays perfectly - fast and smooth. *shudders*





    A leaf fell on it when I was photographing and I about lost my sh**.




    I have a new Aristides 8 inbound, so MAYBE one day some one else will touch this masterpiece.

    But for now this one is MINE! :nono::fawk:

    I don't do 8 strings, but, If I did, that would be the one. Killer guitar!

    Yea, at least on the Boden 8 with a wenge neck.

    I haven't played a 6 or 7 string Boden, so I cant speak about neck diving on those. I assume its because the light chambered body is paired with a rather hefty neck profile on the 8. The neck would want to lay parallel with the floor when standing, which isn't too annoying, I just like the neck to be relatively close to where I play after I let it hang free.

    It may be a posture thing also, I wouldn't jump to any conclusions based off of my experience lol. :)

    Where did you see this FS? I never saw it available.

    Hopefully Rob starts pumping out the 8 scale run guitars, because he clearly can build a sexy one!
