My new flame - litterally! NGD

Mayones (my-onus) Setius GTM6 in blackburst. Mayones is HUGE with the European metal/fusion/prog crowd but are pretty unknown here in the USA. I recently stumbled across the killer prog/metal band Riverside and both the guitarist and bass player endorse these guys. Dug their tones so much I just had to snag one. Fortunately their only US distributor had a few in stock.

Damn! This baby is as good as any high end Suhr, Anderson, or Tyler I've owned or played.

- Flamed maple top
- Mahogany body
- 5 Ply mahogany and maple neck
- Rosewood fretboard - 16" radius / 25.4" scale
- 24 Medium jumbo frets
- Seymour Duncan JB/Jazz pups (soon to be replaced)
- Single volume and tone with push/pull for splitting
- 3 Way switch
- Gotoh tuners and bridge.

The string thru design allows the guitar to sustain like crazy. And note how they fanned the ferrules so that each string has maximum break angle across the saddles - really smart design. Also dig how the truss rod cover echoes the headstock shape.

Never been a fan of this combo. They sound too glassy on higher notes when using a lot of gain.

Congrats on your new axe! Looks very good (interesting) to me and I have to say I never heard about them.

Nice guitar... but hey try using your tone control and or put covers on the SD's before ya change pups.
Usually HG settings can muddy up stuff some , IMO its good to have a little high end to call on . Helps cut through the mix and what not eh!!

Finally found a fault with this baby. They installed an F-spaced pickup at the bridge when the Gotoh bridge has Gibson string spacing.

Doh.

Most likely they only stock the one size and use it on both trem and fixed bridge guitars.
