Mayones Regius 6 Guitar, 40th Anniversary, Walnut and Birdseye Maple
Music Store Live is very proud to offer up this Mayones Regius guitar. This one is particularly special as it is truly unique and made in celebration of 4 decades of making amazing instruments by one of the world's best builders.
The Regius line provides an excellent balance between classic design and modern tone. The neck feels absolutely amazing and while it's very slim, it doesn't feel paper thin either. It's a maple neck with a gorgeous birds eye maple fretboard. The fretwork is spectacular, allowing for nice low action all the way up and down. Definitely a shredder through and through.
The Bare Knuckle TKO pickups are awesome! They're hot and heavy and definitely designed with the modern-day shredder in mind. The TKO pickups are specifically made for Mayones and have that classic aggressive tone that we all know and love. The Mayones tone is incredibly popular with guitarists looking for something that can handle heavy and even extreme gain situations. The combination of the tonewoods used, incredible construction quality, and the custom made pickups make this check all the boxes for that. Load up all the saturation and distortion you want without ever worrying that your sound is going to get muddy or lose definition.
If you need to melt faces, it doesn't get much better than a Mayones guitar. This one is unique, limited, and amazing!
This guitar is definitely one of our most snapped up guitars. Regius series is a powerful neck-thru-body construction instrument, with hundreds of custom options available. Modern sound with a hint of classic shape. This perfect tool takes you to the highest pick of the strings instrument sound. Regius show us many different variations of bridge types, but also, what might be more important, in two different shapes.
Bare Knuckle TKO 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)
