Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to be an official Mayones dealer. If you haven't checked these guys out yet, you're in for a real treat!

Offering some of the highest quality craftsmanship we've ever come across, Mayones is building some absolutely killer guitars that have more than just metal rockers and djent shredders turning their heads to take note. The Duvell Elite 6 is a shredder's axe that's ready to rock. The Bare Knuckle TKO pickups are designed specifically for Mayones and they are awesome! They're hot and heavy and definitely made with the modern-day shredder in mind. These pickups are truly custom-made exclusively for Mayones. The result is a perfect marriage of design, tonewoods, and electronics the likes of which we've rarely seen.

This axe is like a racecar sitting at the red light revving its engine, just itching for the light to turn green and unleash the power like a bat out of hell.

A simple master volume control (with push/pull coil-splitting capability) makes this a no-fuss shredder's axe that is locked and loaded, ready for the limelight.

Manufacturer's Description

Duvell is a metal machine that doesn’t skimp out on anything related to playability and tone. It’s a superstrat-shaped instrument with bolt-on neck and pointed horns for aggressive look. This guitar comes in two main flavours: standard and Elite.

“When I visited Namm 2014, I tried the prototype Duvell made for Misha, I fell in love right away. It was one of the most comfortable guitars I’ve ever played that sounded aggressive and tight, great the for the music I play. Mayones craft amongst the best guitars on the market today. Very unique instruments that have been given a lot of love during their build!” – John Browne / Monuments

“If you’re looking for an ultra-high quality metal machine that doesn’t skimp out on anything related to playability and tone, then the Duvell is for you! They aren’t cheap, but no quality instrument is ever going to be cheap. Personally, I rarely order new guitars, but I placed an order for a Duvell Elite with a pale moon ebony fretboard after playing this guitar. That should say enough.” – Wired Guitarist

“The attention to detail that Mayones put into every single one of their instruments is very apparent – it radiates from the tip of my Duvell’s headstock all the way down to the input jack. You need to hold one in your hands to really appreciate this level of craftsmanship.” – Luke Hoskin / Protest The Hero

BARE KNUCKLE TKO HUMBUCKER PICKUPS

These pickups are specifically designed for Mayones. They are high output and each set is custom wound for the specific model that it's going into.

“Mayones and Bare Knuckle have a strong relationship going back many years so I was honoured when Dawid and his team asked me to design a custom humbucker set specifically for their guitars.

The brief was to create a bridge and neck humbucker set voiced to reflect the playing styles of Mayones players and for the optimum translation of tone from these amazing guitars.

Dawid sent over a Duvell and a Regius for me to use in R&D and over the course of several weeks the concept of the ‘TKO’ humbuckers was borne.

A lot of Mayones customers play progressive, technical styles of rock so I decided to use a combination of ceramic powered bridge humbucker and Alnico V powered neck humbucker. This produces an excellent combination of power and range of tone, producing 3 very distinct tones from bridge, bridge/neck and neck selections on the pickup selector.

Mayones guitars are extremely resonant due to the choice of premium timbers and construction methods and it was important that the pickups capitalised on this naturally rich, percussive tone.

The ‘TKO’ bridge has plenty of output, bass notes track very quickly, mid range is punchy and highs sound full with plenty of weight behind each note. Neck tones are clean and open with a woody snap and great balance of output with the bridge.

Mid position split coil tone is very tight and percussive with a very clear cut in the highs.

Overall the ‘TKO’ humbuckers offer a wide range of saturated rhythm and lead tones coupled with dynamic cleans perfect for modern rock guitar styles and they’re the ultimate partner for Mayones Guitars.” – Tim Mills (Bare Knuckle)
