Dude! That's the finest white to blue I've ever seen. Great specs! I have noticed every ERG of yours lately have this pickup set. Do the Aftermaths hold balance across the board in drop tunings? I have yet to find a set of pickups that don't mud up below below A that still have the attack I'm looking for.

Just simply awesome!

Basswood is an interesting choice. It's nice and light, but I tend to steer away from it, because of its reputation for dead sound, but this sounds amazing. Congratulations, and happy NGD!

Congrats dude, that quilt is extremely nice, and the white-to-blue transition is very well done.
Mayones have been pumping out some awesome stuff, need to try one somehow.
Thanks for the sound clip too, sounds super clear.

I kind of thought you had come to a conclusion that bolt on necks were working better for you and a lot of your recent NGD's were bolt ons, as well as using EMG's (blasphemy around these parts!). Also that multi-ply necks while cool and stable colour the sound a lot. What changed your mind? (just curiosity and nothing negative implied just to be clear)!
I definitely prefer bolt-on necks, but Mayones said that at least for the time being Regius models are neck-thru only, and they aren't offering Setius 8's just yet.
I don't know if the reinforcement strips color the sound THAT much, i normally just ask for a plain maple neck, but once again, this is the neck that the Regius comes with. All in all i can't complain because the guitar sounds great regardless.

Check their site for dealers or scour the www for a second hand one.

I think that "reputation" comes from a combination of some people regurgitating things they hear instead of trying things out for themselves, and also the fact that ANY wood that is of low grade would be inconsistent, and basswood is no exception to this rule.

Just because it is plain looking and inexpensive doesn't mean that its not an incredible tonewood. In my experience, it is more often than not the pretty and expensive woods that make pretty horrendous tonewoods for a body.

Curious how the quality and playability compares to some of the other customs out there... So many BRJ, KxK, Vik, Oni, Mayones, etc but none around here for me to compare. Hard to spend $4k+ without even a test drive. I love BM but I would never drop >$7k for something that I've never tried... I'm always afraid I'll spend all that cash and once the hype and newness is over I won't love it that much more than one of my JEMs or JPM...

Buuuut... it looks incredible!

I'm a lover… Not a fighter... But I'm also a fighter, so don’t get any ideas.

The good thing is whatever you pay for a BM you could pretty easily make back, if you didn't like it.

I know what you mean about test driving these machines. I've been lucky to handle a few out of this world customs (to test drive), but .... for $4K plus it's a little bit of a gamble. I'd be willing to bet the farm on this Mayones, a Vik, and easily a BM. I'm a JEM/JPM guy too and the one BM I touched played and felt like tits on a dolphin sundae, or like sky diving into a mountain of hot whipped cream.

I've added these pictures to a ridiculous dream guitar slide show. Now I need to cover the computer with plastic wrap when it starts...

The gamble with Mayones will pay off well. The necks are to die for. Somewhere in between an Ibanez but kind of like a Jackson neck if that makes sense. The 8 string necks however, feel quite similar to an Ibanez neck. Very very nice for an 8 string neck. They use high end lumber and always sound great! As mentioned before in a different thread, on par with PRS.

Basswood, poplar, and basswood are all underrated woods if youask me. They are often dismissed as cheap and "ordinary", but god dammit they sound awesome!

^Pine also gets some magnificent tones. A certain megadeth-themed V was posted under the luthiery-section comes to mind here.

Also, double-basswood!
