    Apparently it is! And a damn good one too.

    I guess everyone knows the specs by now,

    Mayones Setius GTM7 left handed
    Mahogany body
    Mahogany neck
    Rosewood fingerboard
    Maple top
    25.4" scale
    SD JB7/Jazz7 pickups
    coil tap on volume knob

    I didn't bother with a custom since the stock model is pretty much exactly what I'd order, apart from maybe an ebony board and a stupid finish. Plus it leaves me something to GAS for in the future.

    All I can say is it sounds and plays awesome. I was a bit worried it would sound too dark as my last seven string was an all-mahogany schecter that sounded really dull (probably dead tonewood) but this guitar sounds really balanced and clear. Also everyone seems to hate the JB7, but I think it sounds pretty good here. Not djenty, but clear and chuggy. Who knows, maybe my opinion of it will change the longer I have it. :)

    The Jazz7 neck pickup is also goddamn amazing sounding. I'm usually not a fan of neck pickups (probably because all my guitars have stock neck pickups). I usually find them farty and 'messy' sounding, but this one is super clear and articulate sounding. Great cleans too, which are even better when they're coil-split.

    The top is really beautiful, my iphone camera can't really capture the iridescence of the top and the mahogany on the back in the sunlight.

    Really the only thing I don't like so far is the shape of the truss-rod cover. I may just take it off. Also the strings feel like 9's and I prefer 10's for the heavy strings. I'll replace those when my new ones come in the mail.

    The action is also really low, a bit low for my tastes, actually. The low B, E, A strings buzz up to the 6th fret or so, so I may need to raise the nut or something (?). I may just crank the bridge up a little bit first, as thats a whole lot easier. Actually, that problem may solve itself when I put heavier strings on.

    Been waiting on this one. :)


    I myself am a lover of the JB/Jazz set. 6 and 7 strings.

    The JB catches flak for being shrill/harsh. Though I have yet to encounter that issue. The JB/Jazz is basically my favorite set of passives due to the fact they are so versatile and the JB is gut punch city. And IME, they are perfect for the Setius.
    Matched only by the BKP Holy Diver set, which is actually based roughly on that set. :)

    Welcome to the family! I have a Setius 7 and I don't think there's any reason to change out the pickups :D

    thanks!

    their website says 16" so quite flat compared to all my other guitars. Quite a departure from the 9.5" radius on my strat, haha. That being said, I find no difficulty switching between the two.

    I'm a big fan of a Mayones guitars with a JB in them so not everyone hates the JB ;)

    I saw this Mayo on their facebook page, lovely one. The top looks super cool and I bet it's deep and 3D in real life. Also, what I said hundreds of times before - sunburst works with those guitars like with any others imo.
