PLAYER'S PERSPECTIVE

Here's another absolutely stunning Mayones Aquila Elite S! Finished in a beautiful Lagoon Burst Gloss, this is a double-humbucker version of the Aquila that Mayones released in 2020. The new pickguard-less design shows off that gorgeous 4A quilt maple top very nicely.

The build quality is every bit what we've come to expect from Mayones - masterful from top to bottom. The fretwork is incredible, and the recessed Gotoh 510 tremolo allows for freakishly low action and a smooth response. The wenge neck feels silky-smooth, and the ebony fretboard adds some nice brightness to the acoustic voice of the guitar. The neck is super-fast to maneuver on, but is also not paper-thin. It has a bit of a more traditional C-shaped neck than many of Mayones' shred-oriented builds.

For this model, Mayones favors the wonderful Lollar Imperial Low-Wind humbucker set. These are a bit lower output than what you may have come to except from Mayones - sitting closer to a "PAF"-style pickup - but are an awesome fit with the scale length and tonewood selection. They're bright, clear, articulate, and crystalline with a shot of vintage vibe and response in the pick attack.

There's finally a Mayones offering for guitarists that prefer a tone that harkens back to yesteryear. That said, this is definitely not your father's S-style guitar - it's even better. If you want to get dirty with it, it can do that. If you want to clean it up, it'll handle that as well.

Simply put, they've nailed it!
