Strandberg Boden Alex Machacek Edition Red
Manufacturer's ID: BD6TCT-17X-P-F-RD
What Makes It Special?
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.
What Does It Do?
The result of this collaboration is the Boden ‘Alex Machacek Edition’ 6-string tremolo guitar. This stunning instrument features chambered premium 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 the EGS Pro 5 tremolo system.
Who Is It For?
Essentially a variation of our Fusion model with the smoother sounding Suhr DSV+ bridge humbucker and DSV neck humbucker pickups with the V60LP single-coil in the middle, the guitar produces a wide range of great clean to saturated lead sounds that Alex described as “transparent, balanced and sweet” – a most apt description of the sonic character we aimed to achieve.
