The Strandberg Boden Prog Bass 5 is Versatile, Stable, and Comfortable to Play!
The brand new Strandberg Boden Bass Prog 5 is an impressive entry by Strandberg into the bass guitar market! Based on the classic Prog guitar, this new Prog bass is geared toward the modern player and boasts a lightweight chambered Swamp Ash body with a killer flame maple top, and a roasted maple neck with smooth ebony fingerboard. Features like the EndurNeck profile, Nordstrand Big Rig humbuckers with Darkglass preamp, and a new EGS Rev 2 bass bridge make this a perfect addition to any bass lover's family.
Godin ACS-SA Slim Nylon Acoustic/Electric Offers Exceptional Playability at an Affordable Price!
The 'Slim' refers to the 1.715" neck width at the nut, which is a mere 16th of an inch wider than Godin's standard electric guitar nut width. If you do most of your playing on a guitar with a fairly narrow neck this is the ACS-SA for you. The slim neck of this guitar along with the Ergocut shaping technique and 16" fingerboard radius provide for a very easy transition for steel string guitar players looking to integrate nylon string guitar sounds into their music.

This is the Strandberg Boden Metal model, this one in a 6-string incarnation with a cool and dark black pearl finish.

Woods used on the guitar are a plain maple cap on a chambered mahogany body, along with a roasted maple neck topped with an ebony fretboard. Luminlay side dots help you keep track of your playing on even the darkest of stage lights.

Here we have a '60 Reissue made by the Gibson Custom Shop in a TV Yellow finish, light enough to see the grain in the mahogany be seen.
