Based on one of the most popular past models, the Emerald has been given so many improvements, it deserves to shine on its own! The classic wood combination of rosewood for sides and back and a solid Engelman spruce top immediately sound familiar. The traditionally sonorous sound of rosewood sounds much more modern in the Emerald, still giving off a loud, clear sound that will suit both fingerstyle players as strummers alike.
The latest developments and quality improvements have all been implemented in the Emerald: Satin finished neck for perfect playability, Tusq nut and saddle for improved overtones and richness in sound, ebony fingerboard and bridge for an even faster response and more presence. Gotoh made machine heads in the famous recessed machine heads,the best quality available.
The new Fishman Flex Plus pickup has side-mounted controls for volume, treble and bass. The battery access is easily mounted in the lower bout.
Includes a deluxe gigbag.
What if one could change guitar making concepts, concepts recognised for over 150 years by thousands of luthiers and players? For what seems perfect today can be better tomorrow. However, to improve tomorrow we need to recognise our past and adapt today.
Guitar making concepts to this day largely remain determined by the evolution of the flattop acoustic which began in the late 1800’s. Whilst remaining loyal to this legacy, Mayson have re-considered every aspect of the process, mindful of the possibilities of todays technology. Mayson bring this ’NASA meets Stradivarius’ approach all the way back to the designing table, re-inventing each part of the acoustic guitar.
Head designer Alex Wang worked on the Mayson philosophy for years before the production line came to life. He re-invented the acoustic guitar, combining the soul of old fashioned luthier skills with the accuracy and consistency of modern hi-tech machinery. From changes as simple as embedding the machine head plates into the headstock - eliminating the possibility of sideways rotation as result of string tension, to redesigning the neck-body joint allowing better resonance of the top as well as a more stable fingerboard, Mayson guitars are made by use of visible and non-visible technical concepts that greatly improve sound, stability, strength and aesthetics.
