Quality and resonance

11.09.2016
Used to strat type guitars, I was looking for a convincing Les Paul model and wasn't disappointed by this Maybach Lester.

Light but very resonant, probably also due to the big chunky neck - btw, don't worry you get used to it very quickly.
Playing unplugged and standing up, you can feel the instrument vibrate in you belly.

Overall, very well made instrument, the aging is very (I mean, VERY) subtle, which I tend to prefer - mainly, it's the checking of the nitrocellulose finish that stands out.

The pickups are well balanced. I play mainly styles that require mild to medium overdrive and clean tones, so I was looking for good clean tones too, which I got with this guitar. (My point of reference being my strat equipped with Suhr FL and V60LP).

Only downside to me: the look they went for with the flight case... a bit too "Mariachi" like for my taste!

Top Paula

Andi_E, 03.06.2016
First time thanks to the friendly Thomann team for the great service. The instrument arrived with me 2 days after the order ...

Optics:
When unpacking, I first noticed the super-chic case: richly decorated and even the case locks match the "aged finish" of the guitar.
The Aging of the guitar is extremely successful - for this price class even more!
The light cracks in the paint are discreet and well done, scrapes and other wear are quite realistic. Except for the "own" neck angle (a Les Paul has the head plate more angled ...) an overall strong Les Paul clone.
The neck profile is a strong '58er, rather "beating" than matches (neck thickness at the first waist is about 24 mm at the 12th waist about 26 mm). For the Schred-Franktion thus less suitable, great for the Rocker and Blueser. For the guitar neck applies to me: More wood = more sound :)

Processing:
Disturbing I found the badly used saddle: the saddle was a bit too narrow for the milling. In addition, the side was taken too much: one has a clear gap between the saddle groove and the bottom of the saddle - this can actually be a guitar builder better. Otherwise, everything fits. The weight is about 3.5 kg with my copy very well - a Paula for people with "back". The balance in the seat and the belt fits 1A.

Sound:
Even with the dry play, the good response is noticeable. Chords and melodies are already audible loud and well resolved.
At the Amp, the Maybach delivers everything I want from a Paula: fat thrust, sharp riffs, singing solos - all wonderful. That the body has been chocked for weight-saving is not to be heard. Clean or with Overdrive always comes a nice sound from the speakers.
The controls for volume and tone work first class - you can emit a good tube amp (Marshall or Palmer THREE) over the potentiose of the guitar sounds from jazz to rock.

my conclusion:
A super "Les Pau" l-type guitar with excellent price / performance ratio and very good sound. Who does not necessarily the G ..... on the head plate, is right here!
