    Hi guys!
    2 days ago i received my Mayones that i ordered 5 months ago :)

    First i have to say that working with Mayones is a dream... Artur answered every single question i had and provided me with a lot of updates and pictures during the build.
    I must confess that during the last 5 months and the time before when i chose the specs for this guitar, i must have send him about 50 emails :D
    I also got an Endorsement deal with them, which made this guitar a little bit more affordable :)

    Specs:
    Mayones Regius 7M Baritone,
    Flamed Maple top - Trans Jeans Black Matt finish,
    Mahogany Sapele body back - Trans Natural Matt finish,
    11-ply Maple | Mahogany | Wenge | Amazakoe ntb neck section,
    Ebony fingerboard,
    24 Ferd Wagner medium jumbo frets,
    27" Scale,
    Luminlay side dots,
    Hybrid binding (body, fingerboard, head),
    Bare Knuckle Pickups Cold Sweat Tyger Cover Calibrated Set,
    3-way toggle switch,
    2 × Volume (push-pull) control,
    ABM 3257 strings-thru-body bridge,
    Sperzel Trim-Lok tuners,
    Graph Tech Guitar Labs Black Tusq nut,
    Schaller Security Locks,

    Let me tell you the moment when i first openend the case has to be one of the best of my life so far!

    I don`t want this to sound like every other Mayones NGD, but it is simply a fact that this is by far the best guitar that i have ever played...
    I have extensively played high end ESPs, Gibsons and even PRS`s, and only PRS is on about the same level of quality and playability.

    The guys at Mayones really know what they`re doing, this is pure craftsmanship on the highest level i can imagine.
    And it is so cool to see that happen when a lot of other high end builders seem to be unable to handle high amounts of orders while keeping quality.

    There simply is no flaw to be found on this guitar, it seems to be made out of one solid piece of awesomeness :D
    There is a tiny dark spot on the upper horn which does not affect me at all, however some may see this as an imperfection.

    The Bareknuckle Cold Sweats fit it very nice in Drop A, it sounds extremely tight and defined, with just the right amount of output to create a dry and punchy high gain sound.
    On the other hand you can also coil tap the Neck PU and do all sorts of jazz/blues/whatever with it.

    This guitar sounds so much more defined than my Les Paul in Drop B, which also has a Cold Sweat in it!

    It is pretty heavy and it resonates very well, by no means is it thin or sharp sounding.

    So that`s it for quality and playability... now for the looks :)

    See for yourself:

    Note that the flame on the binding is pretty strong when you see the guitar in real, it`s hard to capture it with the right camera angle.

    Here are some pics i got from Artur at Mayones during the build:

    Thanks man!
    The cool thing is that i asked them to put a top on the guitar that had a lot of contrast and large structure, opposite to what you would normally call a "high grade flame", and they absolutely nailed it :)
