Strandberg Boden Masvidalien Cosmo Headless Multi-Scale Guitar, Ebony Fretboard

$2,395.00

Manufacturer's Description

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.

“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.”— Paul Masvidal

Who is it for?

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.

The Masvidalien Cosmo i an incredibly versatile instrument for many other musical genres besides prog or metal, despite having a single pickup. Consider it for its minimalism and otherworldly elegance.
