Boden CL7 Custom Shop


This product is discontinued and no longer available for sale. Please check out our other guitars!

The Boden CL7 is Chris Letchford’s signature production series designed to his exact specifications for his work with Scale The Summit.

The Boden style is the original .strandberg* shape, combining excellent ergonomics with style and aesthetics. It is named after the city Boden in the north of Sweden, drawing on the resemblance between its shape and reindeer antlers; there are no wild reindeer left in Sweden, but they are commonly farmed in the north.

The specs of the production Boden guitars are taken from the Made to Measure guitars of leading players such as Tosin Abasi, Misha Mansoor, and Chris Letchford. Materials are chosen to provide a versatile tone, applicable to all types of music, and all share the common attributes of being quick to respond and “organic” sounding. Fitted with Lace Alumitones™ pickups and with a chambered Swamp Ash body, it normally weighs in under 2 kg/4.4 lbs, and yet remains perfectly balanced. The contoured body shape allows multiple comfortable seated playing positions and the low weight saves your shoulders and neck. The patent pending EndurNeck™ shape relaxes muscles, joints, and tendons in your hand, wrist and forearm, and encourages a more correct playing position. When you feel better, you sound better.

You can now customize some aspects of your Boden CL7 by choosing finish and electronics!

Delivery time is 2-3 months. Delivery is via UPS and a telephone number is required for the order, so please make sure you provide it when you register.
