Boden Fusion ‘Alex Machacek Edition’
Alex Machacek is one of the most respected and versatile guitarists in the jazz-fusion genre today, effortlessly covering extremely advanced chordal soundscapes to some of the most intense improvisations in a small ensemble format. The Austrian-born virtuoso and .strandberg* Guitars collaborated for nearly a year to develop a guitar that will meet the requirements Alex sought in an ideal instrument suited to his innovative style for fusion and jazz as well as prog.
The result of this collaboration is the new Boden ‘Alex Machacek Edition’ 6-string tremolo guitar. This stunning instrument features chambered Alder body capped with a 4A Flame Maple top, roasted Maple neck with Pau Ferro fretboard, Suhr pickups in HSH configuration specifically chosen to complement his style with custom wiring, and a completely re-designed EGS tremolo system. Alex described the sound of his new guitar as “transparent, balanced and sweet” – a most apt description of the sound we aimed to achieve.
