Sorry if this has been covered before, but I have been looking at the Strandberg basses, particularly the Boden Prog bass, with a lot of curiosity and envy recently.
Does anyone have any experiences with these basses that they can share?
This Strandberg Prog 5 is in excellent condition and has recently been restrung/set up and plays great! This bass will be well packaged upon delivery. Save some pennies with this 'As New' Strandberg! Photos are of the actual bass! FREE Mainland UK Postage. No trades at the moment.
The Boden Bass Prog model was developed for bass players who seek a more modern and aggressive sound that can be fine-tuned with the utmost precision. Featuring a lightweight chambered Swamp Ash body with solid Flame Maple top and Roasted Maple neck with Ebony fretboard, Nordstrand pickups and Darkglass preamp the natural acoustic sound is balanced with plenty of girth but with a bright cutting edge when needed with the bass’s onboard preamp equalisation well as the controls on the amplifier. The Ebony fretboard is slick and fast to play, while also providing a lot of highs that help you cut through the mix.

The first thing you’ll notice about the B-1005SE Multi-Scale will likely be its unusual arrangement of frets. A multi-scale fret design optimises string tension so that the lower strings have a longer scale versus the higher strings, resulting in consistently excellent tone and performance at all points across the fingerboard.
Bass players often report that a multi-scale design is also ergonomically preferential to standard fret designs, and that they feel natural to play, with very little learning curve required. Designed for professional players, the 5-string B-1005SE Multi-Scale provides a swamp ash body with a solid rosewood top, and a five-piece wenge/bubinga neck with rosewood fingerboard, constructed at 37" to 34" multi-scale.
Its components include Gotoh tuners, and Hipshot Solo bridge, and acclaimed Nordstrand Big Splits hum-cancelling pickups, along with an ABQ-3MS 3-band EQ. This setup gives you incredible flexibility in tone, with an active/passive mini-switch, a mid-frequency selection mini-switch (800Hz or 400Hz), individual bass, treble, and mid EQ controls, and master volume and balance controls. Available in Natural Satin finish.

I’ve owned this bass for under a year and it personally wasn’t for me it is in almost mint condition but as you can see in the photos there is a chip in the headstock and there is some showing of wear on the bridge.
The bass comes with a gator Hardcase a spare set of Payson multiscale bass strings and a strap with strap locks.
I am willing to ship this guitar but it will take around a week due to me getting the packaging and having to work around my rota. If interested please send me a message
