Boden Masvidalien CosmoSKU: BD6CT-17L-E-V-BB
Paul challenged us to come up with a guitar that sounded better than anything else he had played, and this goal was achieved by a single EMG 57 bridge pickup and an active EMG VMC tone control which provide a broad array of great sounds while retaining a minimalistic look that Paul sought.
The Boden ‘Masvidalien Cosmo Edition’ features chambered Swamp Ash body with a Maple top for a superbly balanced and punchy sound and an open pore Poplar Burl veneer top for a dramatic and unique finish, roasted Maple neck with Ebony fretboard accented with his trademark Masvidalien inlay across the fretboard.

A founding member of Cynic, Paul Masvidal has shaped modern progressive music since the early/mid 90s. The Masvidalien Cosmo model is the second signature model for Paul, and an evolution for both parties, pushing the boundaries of music and guitar making. Says Paul:
“Strandberg breaks new ground yet again. Kabir, the 15th century Indian mystic poet said, ‘Wherever you are is the entry point’, and the Masvidalien Cosmo captures this spirit as an instrument.”
“When I first started conversations with Ola about the guitar, words such as ‘effortless’, ‘ease’, ‘elegance’, and ‘versatility’ came to mind. Not only was this captured with the instrument, but it was also taken further. The finished product managed to strike a rare alchemy, where everything from the way it sounds, feels, and appears fell seamlessly into place: the guitar both expresses and is itself an expression.”
“Strandberg is in a league of its own, holding the greatness of progressive design at its heart. Ola’s work benefits the present by not being bound to it. It’s truly an honor to be working with a visionary company like Strandberg.”

I'm coming from the traditional electric guitars such as ESP, Jackson USA ... And first time reaction when I saw a Strandberg was ... What is that ??! I was in a weird feeling , didn't know if I was in love or hate of what I was seeing . Time is up and we are now ,the more I look, the more I find it the most beautiful existing guitar !!! I took the plunge and bought the Masvidalien Cosmo ! Unique fantastic guitar !!! So light and resonant , perfect finishes for an Indonesian guitar , as good as my Jackson USA ..really !!! (I was not paid to say that !!! ) And the Endurneck ... Amazing !!! 5 minutes to take it in hand but a life changer for my guitarist life !!!! Thank you Mister Ola for all these innovations !!!! The only problem... This Masvidalien makes me want to sell my others guitars to buy one or two other Strandberg (Boden) !!!! If you hesitate , really don't fear to be surprised in the good way !!!
Thank you for the kind words and 5 stars, Jean! I hope you will continue to enjoy your Masvidalien Cosmo.
