    WHY NOT COMBINE ALL THREE
    IMG_2858.jpeg

    New boy is a Mayones Regius Core 7. Quilt maple top, ash body, maple/wenge/etc neck, ebony board, Hannes bridge, BKP (I believe Juggernauts but could be Ragnaroks, spec sheet isn't clear). The M is actually an inlayed piece of figured maple on this one, a nice subtle touch!

    They call this a "Galaxy Eye Burst," I call it ridiculous. It's a love it or hate it thing (my wife HATES it :lol:) but I think it works really well on this top.

    Tons of chatoyance, the figure changes radically depending on what angle you're looking at the guitar from.

    The Core and Core classic have that little hump at the neck heel, I believe for added stability. It's not noticeable when playing, my hand never comes into contact with it.

    Family photo. Well, partial family photo. I have too many guitars.

    First impressions: It's a Regius. They're always flawless. The carved top is comfortable, very PRS or ESP Horizon-esque in feel. It's lighter than you'd expect, or at least lighter than I expected. The Hannes is great, I like most bridges but there's definitely something extra comfy about these. I know a lot of folks here hate gloss finished necks but I like 'em just fine. Tone wise it's a little tighter and has more upper mids than the myrtle Regius next to it, which I guess I have to chalk up to the different woods since they have the same pickups (the myrtle one has a black limba back). The Duvell has its own weird thing going on, what with the limba body, wenge neck, and bastardized BKP/Seymour Duncan pickup combo.

    I love them all and they are my precious children.

    I guess galaxy eye has a better ring to it than used tampon stain

    The figuring of that quilt saves it. I don't know if I'd dig those burst colors on a different top but with the depth and symmetry of that quilt, I'd say it's a winner. Congratulations/ HNGD!

    There ain't a durned thing wrong with that finish, but I really dig your Duvell.

    Played a couple Regius, but none with the Hannes. Is it high mass?

    no idea what constitutes “high mass” but I doubt it applies to the Hannes. The saddles are some kind of plastic/composite like Graphtech. Aside from the tailpiece part i don’t think there’s much metal at all.
