A cutting-edge neck-thru version of the original and highly popular Plini Edition bolt-on model, this guitar features the vaunted Boden neck-thru-body design which virtually eliminates the neck heel and provides total unconstrained access to the high register of the fretboard, facilitating new techniques and sounds with incredible comfort and ease. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to play a heel-less guitar, there is no need to look further.

The Plini Edition Neck-Thru features the same chambered Swamp Ash body with solid Maple top and Australian Blackwood veneer and the .strandberg* EGS Series 5 tremolo system but differs significantly with its 5-ply carbon fiber reinforced neck-thru-body construction and the new Michael Frank design .strandberg* Plini Edition humbuckers. Years in the making, these pickups were tested and revised numerous times to meet Plini’s exacting tonal requirements.

Now Plini’s main axe for both live and recording usage, this guitar represents the pinnacle of the Boden design and is destined to become a modern classic that combines innovative industrial design with tried-and-true traditional tone woods and cutting-edge pickup technology.

The neck-thru-body design and construction facilitates unparalleled playability in the upper register of the fretboard while providing a unique punchy tone with improved sustain. Light weight and superbly balanced for hours of playing comfort, the extended EndurNeck profile across the entire length of the neck means the benefits of the design is maximized to further enhance your playing. Visually, the instrument is strikingly sleek and refined with an ideal balance between forward-thinking innovation and time-tested traditional. Tonally, the Plini Edition Neck-Thru can cover many musical genres and styles but is especially well-suited for modern prog for high gain applications and crystal-clear clean tones.

Besides the amazing playability and comfort, the Boden Plini Edition delivers a wide palette of musical sounds with a distinct sonic character due to its neck-thru-body construction. Compared to the bolt-on, the sound is punchier and more focused with enhanced sustain. The woods were carefully selected and matched to maximize the natural acoustic characteristics of the design and construction. Swamp Ash’s punchy high midrange complements the chambered body wings. Combined with the 5-ply carbon fiber reinforced Roasted Maple neck-thru-body, solid Maple top with Australian Blackwood veneer and Ebony fretboard which provide rigidity, focus and upper midrange brilliance, the Plini Edition Neck-Thru has an exceptionally balanced acoustic character. The .strandberg* MF-design Plini Edition bridge and neck humbuckers with special 3-way wiring deliver wide range of great humbucker and single-coil sounds in a minimalist layout.

The Plini Edition Neck-Thru is for the advanced and uncompromising musician who requires the ultimate in performance, playability and sonic versatility. The forward-looking instrument reflects the vision of an artist who seeks to balance the past with the future to explore new musical territories, going well beyond what has been achieved in the past. Looking to break out of the classic/vintage rut? The Plini Edition Neck-Thru defines where the electric guitar is going in the New Millennium.
