1 item left

The Boden Bass Standard 5 model features a solid American Basswood body with Flame Maple veneer and quartersawn Roasted Maple neck and fretboard. This classic wood combination delivers a strong midrange from the body with brilliance and punch from the neck, resulting in a very balanced and articulate sound to cover a variety of playing styles and musical genres. The neck is reinforced with carbon fiber and Walnut for rigidity as well as long-term stability.

To bring out the best of this instrument’s natural woody acoustic character, Fishman Fluence Bass pickups and electronics are used to convey all the subtleties of the player’s technique and touch to various amplification systems without coloration. 2-Band EQ on a concentric potentiometer provides superb tonal flexibility to accommodate various playing situations ranging from home recording to live performances.


The Boden Bass Standard 5 was designed to provide exceptional comfort, ergonomics, and playability with its lightweight headless construction, multi-scale neck, and the patented EndurNeck neck profile. For the bass player, this is especially important knowing how much a solidbody bass can weigh. The proprietary hardware is constructed of aircraft grade aluminum that plays a major part in the instrument’s unique woody and organic acoustic character besides reducing the overall weight. Fishman Fluence Bass pickups and 2-Band EQ provide versatility as well as pure sonic quality.


Besides the striking visual design aesthetics and unmatched ergonomic features that the Boden design is known for, the very best materials, components, and craftsmanship combine to provide a bass that is easy to play, reduces fatigue for your hands as well as your back, and which produces stunningly clear yet warm organic sounds that will suit virtually any musical genre and style. Acoustically, the Boden Bass Standard 5 is punchy, articulate, rich, and balanced with strong fundamentals and these characteristics are further enhanced and complemented by the Fishman Fluence Bass pickups and electronics.
