Maybach Guitars 

From the very beginning, Maybach had written on its flag not only to manufacture instruments of the best possible quality but to implement this consistently with the promise of 'Made in Europe'. This vision had been developed over three years of intensive preparation. It was successfully turned into reality when the Maybach ship set sail in 2011 and quickly set its course – driven by a wind of enthusiasm sparked by the many musicians thrilled by the quality of Maybach instruments. 

From Maybach:

"The semi-acoustic design brings the best of both worlds. On the one hand, it produces an acoustically inspired, open, and transparent tone that only a resonant chamber as large as the one inside a Capitol ’59 can make. On the other, an expertly installed center block in the body allows you to celebrate this sound at high stage volumes without having your performance ruined by feedback or booming. 

The Maybach Capitol ’59 stands in the tradition of the 1959 model year, obviously the best year of this guitar type. The historically correct arching of the maple top and back, the appropriate shape of both cutaways, the f-holes in traditionally accurate shaping, and the glued-in mahogany neck with its rosewood fingerboard promise the best at first glance. This impression will be lastingly confirmed when the end-fifties neck profile of the Capitol ’59 gently snuggles into your hand. The icing on the cake is the outstanding „Spirit of ’59“ pickups from German manufacturer Amber. They transmit the voice of the Capitol ’59 so that it can unfold its sounds magnificently on the wings of lightness. Those who are looking for a more direct and punchy sound will, of course, find it in the Capitol ’59 with double Amber P-90 pickups. Please note: The pickups used in Capitol ’59 are available individually in our store. 

We finish all Maybach Capitol ’59 Series instruments with nitro lacquer, which allows the guitar’s semi-acoustic body to breathe freely. "
