The Mayson ESM10CE Elementary Series is a beautiful guitar with cutaway which is ideal for both the living room artist and the performing player. The solid spruce top is responsible for the snappy, bright tone which will even mature over time, and the mahogany sides with an elegant cutaway lets you access the upper frets. The Mayson Purecoustics™ MPC-4 active piezo pickup is a guarantee for a natural amplified sound. Trouble free amplified playing through the absence of controls on the guitar.
The satin finish is hand rubbed to a smooth, deep, satin sheen, giving the guitar an understated classy and natural look.
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.
