Fantastic

Didier1948, 08.10.2015
The lutherie is irreproachable, the finish "relied" is very realistic (that of an old instrument but maintained), they had the good idea to leave the handle in "new" finish.
The guitar is very light for a LP but it really sounds like the one it inspires: with a little more bass and very precise mediums, the treble seems a little more discreet than on the American, which suits me good.
The handle is rather 50 years, it is a 42 / 52mm therefore rather narrow but very thick because very round. At first, it is disconcerting for those who are accustomed to modern profiles. The result is very comfortable, especially as the strings are low and the frets (Gibson vintage) perfectly surfaced.
The Amber pickups are just perfect: they are precise, warm, they have no defect or lack in the sound spectrum. I think their output level is a bit higher than the G Reissue 57. The low is very soft, very round, it crunch easily while retaining the shine. The treble is more surprising: it gives a really chiseled sound like I never heard on a G. The harmonics are more easily, it responds incredibly well to variations of attack. I who played 25 years on strat with which to fight a bit, I re-learn to play right hand!
I was lorgnais on a LP Traditional of the American brand, but the innovations 2015 do not please me (handle, mechanical, nut and even finishes) when I came across this guitar. It's a real favorite, I do not regret a moment, especially considering the price. Some say it's worth an R8 ...
It arrived at home perfectly packed (the flight is also vintage in a more questionable style, question of tastes) but the toggle switch was broken, which is rather common on the LP. Thomann immediately made me leave a guarantee that I will change myself at my request (simpler than turning the guitar).
I see that the brand is starting to have a lot of success, including with the pro, delays are lengthening and prices will probably follow.

buk 66, 15.03.2017
This is the first review in Italian on the Maybach 59 Lester, and I could not wait!
Know that this beautiful guitar that I have at hand can not and must not be compared to the Standard and Traditional Gibson Nashville production, but the most prestigious Custom Shop.
Aside from the differences, which, however, there are:
body in two pieces, nothing ABR-1 and long tenon, I will begin to list the merits of this wonder made by hand.
The woods are excellent and first-quality, hand-selected one by one, the average weight of these guitars
estimated at 3.8 kg, are not able to tell you whether inside the body there are tonal chambers, but on their website it says that these guitars should not exceed 4 kg ... this is the first commandment for luthiers build it.
However, most expensive productions of the Gibson Custom Shop, like the famous Tom Murphy, have within them tonal chambers.
In this regard, I invite everyone to go and see how much they cost, and make the necessary comparisons ... without detracting from the Gibson brand ... God forbid.
The finish and the bill of this tool, as well as placement of the buttons, are impeccable.
The pickups are hand wound and cost £ 400 the pair, I have personally verified.
They alnico 5, the magnet is demagnetized to simulate
The aging.
The sound is penetrating, warm and crystalline, the notes are percussive, and come out with equal intensity along THROUGHOUT THE KEYBOARD, harmonics come to wonder, is spontaneous play fast.
The handle thick, very reminiscent of the Gibson Les Paul traditional (I personally own a).
... With regard to electronics compartment it is properly shielded by a copper paper, but sometimes the guitar movement (though only in a certain way) generates a slight electrostatic discharge a bit 'annoying ... nothing serious though. ..while it is playing instead all right!
The pots are CTS average 500 K, linear and logarithmic volume (audio) on the tones.
The bridge and the block-strings seem aluminum.
The mechanical tulip seem robust and have the "peg" very short, just a few laps to get a correct pitch of the strings on the headstock and the right tension at the nut for the benefit of tenderness.
Separate discussion deserves reliccatura.
I'm not a fan of the relic, but I must admit that these luthiers are REAL ARTISTS observe and reflect, in an obsessive signs of aging, not only on the body but also on all aluminum parts, including mechanical.
The scratches and small cracks are created on purpose and are only visible backlit ... well nothing particularly invasive and unsightly.
Regarding the setting, the guitar when he comes to be adjusted in violin making, to fully appreciate the quality.
The housing is very nice, the stitching is double with a flap, the padding is a beautiful emerald green, and is made with a fine fabric.
It would be great if these wonders were imported and also spread in our country, and in this price range, sorry to say, you would eat for lunch
breakfast, dinner and many guitars of well more famous brands.
If you are not maniacs of the brand, and want a hand-built instrument, well, buy without fear ... all others say:
You DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOU LOSE !!!
Finally a big thank to Thomann (serious and reliable) for spreading and brought to the attention of guitarists this gem.
