The Maybach Lester Double Cut design first appeared in 1952 – yet it only became an iconic instrument with the rise of blues rock and the creative guitar heroes’ playing on those legendary 60s recordings.
Awesome Maybach Lester Junior Double Cut with all the resonance, balance and sustain you are looking for from this type of design, with the added bonus of chord shapes that mix high-register fretted notes and open strings sounding near perfectly in-tune. This Lester is rich and harmonically complex before you even flick your amplifier’s power switch. Let a chord ring out unplugged and hold the guitar’s body to your ear, and you can hear high overtones bloom into something resembling feedback – it’s something that always bodes well for amplified tone.
And the hand-wound “90-style” pickups deliver exactly the straightforward rock sound with which the last decades’ great guitarists have delighted us. The Maybach and sounds pretty raunchy when we crank the guitar’s volume control back up and unleash hell. Everything you’d want from a guitar like this is present and correct. She is a lightweight with only 2.95 kilograms/ 6.5 lbs. Maybach use Nitro varnish which adds to the open tone. This is a guitar with a lot of different sounds! Billy Joe Armstrong, Bob Marley, Mick Jones, Peter Frampton, John Lennon’ and many more have shown what is unique guitar can do. Near mint condition!
