My quest to own a Mayones has come to an end at last. Although i'm more of a six string player at the moment, this is literally my dream 7 spec wise, and happened be my absolute favorite factory finish to exist. The finish, faded black jeans, is stunning with natural light, and definitely has traces of olive in it. The 27" scale took maybe an hour or two to really adjust to with my girlish hands, but the trade off in the upper registers suits me well. Being only the second Mayones i've played, what's consistent is the level of craftsmanship and detail. It's the least instrument-like guitar i've owned, but not in a bad way. Akin to the burl regius I played, it feels like a museum piece. This example has the 11 piece neck with Mahogany wings, and it's as heavy as my les Paul custom of the past. The neck profile is thicker than jp7's and wizard series', but with no compromise to comfort. It feels like a soft "D" shape, with a nice little shoulder. TONE is MAMMOTH with this bad boy. It's a real focused wall of sound , but just a tad dark for my tastes. The nazgul/sentient work extremely well, very full sound from the bridge, with a roll off in the upper mids. Split coil tones are phenomenal, and rolling back on the volume still provides incredible response to picking dynamics. While these are the first Duncans i've enjoyed, I need a tad more clarity & aggression, so suggestions are welcome there. I thought for a second maybe, that Mayones was a hypemachine, as ~$2500 JPxx models were plenty good, but the Regius is a cut above. Its over all feel is defined by the word solid. Thanks, Poland.
