About This Listing

Presenting the Strandberg Boden Alex Machacek Edition in Transparent Red

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 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.

Essentially a variation of Strandberg's 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.

The EndurNeck™ is a patented neck profile that provides many benefits:
  • By utilizing flat surfaces rather than a round profile, it provides a more restful grip for the thumb
  • Your hand is much stronger when gripping something thick than when gripping something thin, and the EndurNeck™ uses this fact in its design.
  • Due to the way that it is designed, it is experienced as comfortable whether you are used to a thick or thin neck
  • Chord playing at the far end of the neck is made easier
  • Soloing and fret access in general at the near end of the neck is made easier
  • The curved rear section and the angles of the surfaces interact to encourage a more correct playing position and a straighter wrist
– The result is less stress on muscles, joints and tendons, which lets you play more relaxed, with less fatigue, which results in less risk of injury and better playing

The EndurNeck was invented by Ola Strandberg and is featured exclusively on .strandberg* instruments
