Boden Fusion NX
Alex Machacek Edition
One of the most highly acclaimed and respected virtuosos in the modern jazz fusion scene today, Alex Machacek has been a trailblazing innovator who is constantly exploring new musical territories and expanding the genre’s boundaries. Whether it is traditional jazz, technical fusion, or mainstream rock, Alex can fuse and morph such diverse and challenging idioms to a coherent whole that is uniquely his alone. Combining awe-inspiring technique with an equally broad and deep understanding of advanced harmonic language along with tasteful phrasing and rich organic tone, Alex is the consummate player and composer who covers all and plays them all.
With the development of the NX line, we worked closely with Alex to develop his next generation signature model guitar that would meet all of his demanding requirements. Besides all of the upgrades featured in the NX line like the Rev7 hardware, the new neck-body joint heel, the smoothened arm contour, and the Rosewood fretboard featured on the Fusion model, a lot of time and effort were spent on developing his ideal set of pickups with our pickup guru Michael Frank. The result is an instrument that Alex is truly happy with functionally as well as sonically, opening up even more possibilities both technically and tonally to create and play with complete freedom.
