THE ESSENCE

Mayones instruments find their origin in the very same place music starts – the heart. Their essence stems from passion of the talented musicians we work with and the devotion of our experienced luthiers. Our guitars and basses are the result of the perfect blend of nearly 30 years of tradition, modern technology and use affection at every stage of the building process.


THE TRADITION

Mayones believe that the soul of a musical instrument comes from the quality wood it is build of. Flamed Maple, Swamp Ash, Mahogany, Amazaque or Wenge are just a few wood types Mayones import from long-term suppliers to ensure superb tone qualities and seductive looks. The careful selection of tone wood applied for almost three decades guarantees the best sound properties of every “M”-labelled guitar or bass.


THE TECHNOLOGY

Mayones instruments are truly handmade in a traditional luthier style accompanied with state-of-art technology and equipped with top class components. Every guitar and bass follow the same production routine: take the skills and the experience of our crew, implement strict quality standards at every step of production and add the elusive touch of our love to guitars. The result is always the same – a top notch instrument with soul and built-in inspiration.
