    Bad news everyone. They aren't actually Sugi made, just using Sugi wood and painted by Sugi. Made in the same factory as the other Boden Js. A bit too expensive at that rate, if you ask me.

    Just saw by accident that Thomann is now selling Strandberg. Bad for Ola's margin, but good for his reach...

    Ya, I dunno. Those have the new and custom style backplate and nice wood but the old route styles. I dunno if I'd spend that much for that.
    They also have the 25.75" - 25" Scale 7 string scale length...
    for 5,874.99. Yikes that's a hardpass. The new swedish custom shops can come under that.

    Reach is good! I think he already sold more 7 string trems then were even made in previous years.

    I got a Boden Prog 7 on Monday, gonna try and get round to doing a NGD of it soon :) Which image hosting sites still actually work for here?

    Is there anything in particular anyone would like to know or see? I haven't seen a NGD for this particular model as of yet, also got to try out a Prog 6 and in about two weeks I'll get to sit with 5 original series ones as well, with a Classic Trem set to appear at some point :)

    Ola proofs to be a very clever business man (again). I know Thomann for over 30 years and it is highly unusual that they add anything to their portfolio without being able to offer a huge discount. At the moment you will only save shipping costs compared to Ola's EU shop.

    Bump. Would someone please buy that damned thing? I only have a little over 24 hours until my disease takes hold. I’m not even going to keep the guitar stock - Once I look it over, I’m just going to put the roasted birdseye neck from my other Boden on it, put a Schaller E+ switch in, and add a DPDT toggle with capacitor/resistor combo for single coil simulation ala the Charvel Govan. And even then, I’ll likely audition ten sets of pickups :(

    If you’re serious about buying once you have the balance, I can tell myself I’m holding off to see if neck-thrus are being NAMM-announced as additions to the production line.

    wait how come i'm not holding out for that.

    i'm still hoping an original 7 trem comes up for sale too.

    but i'm definitely thinking about that fusion.

    or three piezo equipped used prestiges.

    life is hard and full of choices.

    There's a dude selling a prog 7 in the classifieds, doesn't have a maple board but other than that it pretty much fits the bill. :)

    Like any addict trying to stay on the wagon, I'm telling myself to wait until Sunday to purchase the Fusion, because it likely won’t be shipped until Monday, anyway. I’m also withholding it as a reward for getting through some of my perpetual guitar projects over the weekend (Auditioning new pickup sets in my Parker Flys, for one).

    I’m only posting this brain diarrhea to motivate my restraint.

    Edit: Fuck.

    that's pretty good too but...come on bro your on reverb. there's like at least 10 things worth buying on there at any given time.

    I think I'm going to pass not the fusion. It's super nice but really need that 7 trem.
    also for the price of that fusion i could almost get 2 classic trems. and they won't be as good but it's like 2 is more then 1?

    [​IMG] Did anyone see Yvette Young post about what looks like a single-cut Boden on her Instagram story?

    I'm hoping they'll offer the symmetrical endurneck profile at some point on production guitars. A fools hope I know.

    Are you referring to a straight trapezoid neck ala Rick Toone or a straight-scale EndureNeck?
