    I've got my order in. Who hoo! Baritone 7 string in Ajna burst.
    I might actually explode when it finally arrives in my mitts.
    Browne, out of interest what is it default tuning on them and what gauges are used?

    So looking forward to not having to spend years of tuning with a floyd rose on my universe every time I want an alternate tuning setup.

    The first Duvell Qatsi Model has been received by my good friend Francesco Cameli at Sphere Studios LA (Formerly Royaltone/Kung Fu Gardens)

    He's recorded multiple big acts, Shinedown, Flyleaf, Korn all the way through to Adele '21' and Ed Sheeran's 'X'

    Are these guitars being built and released already? I thought they weren't going to be out until the order window closed. Was this a NAMM guitar?

    Just curious, as I'd love to get mine sooner than later :hbang:

    This was one of the first 5 built. They were built in every configuration to see if we got it right. All 5 were amazing. I have the only baritone one, 2 want to Namm, 1 went to Frank, and there's 1 7 string Ajna in Standard scale that is somewhere!

    The risk can drastically be reduced, when oiling the fingerboard 2-4 times a year.

    I myself use Duesenberg Fingerboard Lotion, which is one of the very few oils, that is really colorless and avoids the development of a yellow cast on snow white bindings, which is important on my Gretsch Panther and my new Mayones Regius.

    But my Regius was the first new guitar which didn't have a totally dry fretboard, when I bought it, so it seems Mayo already have taken care of oiling it before shipping to the shop. Btw ... it was the same on the two Duvells, the shop had in stock. So I guess, the oiling was done by Mayo and not by the shop guys.

    Bore Oil works beautifully as well and is clear. I use it for all my ebony boards.

    Never heard about it ... a translation problem as it seems. A short research showed, that it is mainly used for wind instruments like clarinet, so it seems to be a good choice. Interesting tip :yesway:

    I always though it's for the clarinet's mechanics, but no ...



    :idea:

    PS: But searching for bore oil photos reveils, that not every bore oil is colorless.

    Ikea Skydd is cheap as balls and stays clear forever (at least as far into "forever" as I've experienced it). The only downside is that it's a little bit thick so you gotta let it sit a little if you want it to penetrate properly.

    Oh yeah it's mainly for wood wind instruments, I've been using it on my ebony fretboards for a couple years now with great success :yesway:

    Gorgeous instrument; that ash looks delicious.


    Just a bit too salty for my margarita, unfortunately.

    I would have chosen that one over the Juicy too. That Schaller bridge looks very comfortable ... never noticed that.

    Now that the order window is closed, is there any word on when the ship dates are going to be?

    My buddy Alex got a pair of these he was told around the end of the year like October/November. Their usual build times are like 7-8 months from ordering so it makes sense depending on when you ordered.

    Mayones told we they were hoping to ship most of them out by August/September, but there was also alot more orders than they were predicting. When we got this all organised we were going to limit it to 12 guitars only rather than an order window.

    There probably glad at this point we went for that option haha.
