Haven't found the time to snap a few pics until now... It was my 30th birthday on 26/12/16 and with it being a biggy my fiancee decided to do the amazing and bought me a Mayones Regius. That's right; pretty sure she's definitely a keeper. Onslaught of crappy iPhone pics in terrible lighting below; Bonus round; also got an incredibly rare sealed copy of Dissection - Storm Of The Lights Bane on vinyl too! I've been looking at Mayones for about 5 years now and never quite pulled the trigger... there's always been something that's came up or what's been available when I've had the cash hasn't quite been what I wanted (not green, all gloss, a top I didn't love etc.). So after 5 years of GAS'ing and build-up how does it compare to my expectations? It's absolutely killer and doesn't even remotely disappoint. Pretty standard specs apart from it having a gloss top and matt back, which is a really big deal for me, and a set of Bare Knuckle Blackhawks which which really surprised me with how good they are. Might want to swap them out at a later date for something else though as they're not quite my cup of tea. It's surprisingly weighty, which I love as I'm a fan of heavier guitars, and plays like butter. Every note rings out so loud and clear. The low B has a bit of rattle, but I've got a set of NYXL 11-64 strings sitting waiting for when I tune it to Bb shortly so I'll see to that then. Apart from the fact that's it's obviously an amazing gift it's a really special guitar to me as it feels like the culmination of all the things I've liked about guitars I've owned in the past all rolled in to one... ash body, neck-through, green flame etc. Very much in love with it. Haven't played a 7 string in quite some time either and I'm getting a real kick out of that. Summary; Mayones good, believe the hype, now need Duvell Elite, good thing I'm already marrying her as fiancee is amazing, pressure is now on to live up to this for her 30th birthday!
