Mayones Duvell Elite 7, 7-String Guitar, Buckeye Burl
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! Along with a buckeye burl top, we customized this one a bit further by adding a tone knob and getting knob covers that matched the top of the guitar. Subtle upgrades that have a great impact on both the sound and the aesthetics of the instrument.
Offering some of the highest quality craftsmanship we've ever come across, Mayones is building some absolutely killer guitars that have not just metal rockers turning their heads to take note. The neck on this 7-string is super comfortable and will require little-to-no adjustment if you're a 6-string slinger. It's pretty easy to shred up and down the neck no matter whether you're down by the nut or up high trying to reach the highest frets.
The low-B is tight, punchy, and really brings the thunder. It doesn't have any of that wobbliness that you can sometimes encounter. Flying up and down the neck is a breeze and whether you're playing chords, ripping lead-lines, or using both hands to do some fancy fretboard tapping, you'll find this guitar to be super expressive and the notes just jump right out with minimal effort. Plus the craftsmanship is so good that you can really get shredder-level low action with ease.
The Bare Knuckle coldsweat and nailbomb pickups that we chose for this guitar are aggressive and can handle any amount of saturation you throw at them. These are geared with the modern-day shredder in mind but absolutely still maintains some vintage goodness in with the nailbomb pickup. It's a wonderful combination that lets you get tight and punchy bass response out the neck pickup with a bridge tone that can handle saturation with ease but still dabbles lightly in that vintage tonal pallet. It makes for a tremendously useful guitar that, undoubtedly, leans towards having a more overwound tone.
While still keeping the controls simple for this one, we decided to add a tone knob just to give that much more flexibility to the tones at your fingertips. The wooden covers for the knobs are a nice classy touch that we figured "why the heck not?" as a nice little ribbon on the entire package.
Mayones guitars and basses are hand-crafted in Poland using traditional European luthier techniques and the finest components available. Professional musicians worldwide depend on their Mayones to provide stunning sound and consistent playability night after night.

Bare Knuckle Coldsweat Pickup
The Cold Sweat humbucker is a tight and percussive ceramic powered humbucker with a high resonant peak, producing clear, detailed treble response and smooth mids.
The custom-sized ceramic magnet gives the Cold Sweat humbucker a more controlled dynamic with stacks of output and sustain. The mix of ceramic powered bridge and Alnico V powered neck gives a broad palette of clean and driven tones which creates the perfect tone for a variety of modern rock styles.
The neck humbucker is very popular among shred players for its articulate but fluid tone, and it is ideal for effortless sweep picking.
Bare Knuckle Nailbomb Pickup
The Nailbomb humbucker is the perfect synergy of old-school and modern rock tones in a high output humbucker.
From hot, fat blues rock through to aggressive thrash, the Nailbomb explodes with a strong and commanding voice. Contemporary players will take advantage of the full bore reaction of the pickup on full tilt; older school players will enjoy the range of classic tones and response using the volume pot to clean up.
