    So, now that that's done, to the specs: Mayones Duvell 6 Elite with Eye Poplar top and Ebony fretboard in Trans Black Burst Satin finish with paint-over-binding. It’s not a custom order, but it’s very close to what I would have ordered anyway for this kind of a black/dark/stealthy looking guitar. The only difference I would have liked is to have natural binding around the body (as it's the case for most Duvell); and a different set of pickups. This weekend I took the time to swap the pups from the original SD Sentient/Nazgul set to a Bare Knuckle Juggernaut set. Props to both Mayones and Bare Knuckle support teams who corrected my shady wiring diagram almost instantly by email. Everything sounds great now!

    That’s the first Mayones guitar that I own, and it’s absolutely flawless. There is nothing else to say really. I have owned kind of expensive ESP, Ibanez and Jackson guitars. I feel this is in another league, because the level of attention and care for every details is palpable.

    Thanks for looking and take care!

    Congrats!

    I might be in the minority since I think it looks nicer without the natural binding around the body. Something about the way the horns are sculpted makes the natural binding on these guitars look uneven to me when viewed straight on.

    Looks awesome. My Duvell non elite seems so antiquated compared to some of these elites. Black hex bolts are a nice look

    HNGD!

    I’m on my third Mayones Duvell. Fantastic guitars, their attention to detail is amazing.

    Took delivery of a new one yesterday and am loving the arm carve they’ve introduced.
    Enjoy :)
