Everything and the Kitchen Sink
AlexSaint, 08.06.2020
I'm a home musician, and haven't performed in a live environment since my early 20's. For most people (myself included), this is a significantly large purchase. In fact, this is the largest cash purchase I've made for a single item. After months of setting aside funds to make this purchase, the real question becomes "Was it worth the money"?

I ordered the Majesty 7 on a Thursday (as it turned out, a public holiday), but it arrived perfectly boxed by Tuesday afternoon. Hats off to Thomann for quick processing and delivery, especially when you consider that delivery services are stretched during this pandemic.
The guitar was well-packaged; a sturdy outer box, dense paper stuffing, EBMM's box and the sturdy case. Any concerns I had about damage in transit were quickly put to rest.

After a week of use, I feel I've got a solid opinion of this piece:

- The quality of finish is absolutely flawless. I scrutinised every millimetre of paint and metalwork, and there wasn't so much as a fingerprint or speck of dust, let alone a flaw. The paint changes colour depending on the lighting and angle.

- The frets are stainless steel and what most would consider to be "medium-jumbo". They're perfectly crowned and as smooth as glass. While I'd prefer to have a larger gauge, I'm willing to make that sacrifice for this level of fretwork. It is a signature model. and that's what JP wants.

- The magnetic pickups are outstanding. They can work with every amp setting from pristine cleans to ultra-saturated gain without sacrificing the clarity of each string. You really won't lack for excellent tones with coil-splitting and an adjustable pre-amp boost.

- The piezo saddle pickups add yet another tonal option. While they don't quite sound perfectly like an acoustic, they're certainly close enough and can be mixed with the magnetic pickups to add another dimension to your sound.

- If I want crazy whammy antics, I have Floyd Rose-equipped guitars I can use, but the EBMM trem in the Majesty holds tune without a hiccup unless you're going full Steve Vai. It'll give you 90% of the tuning stability of a FR, but only requires 20% of the effort to set up.

- The playability is top-drawer. Out of the box, the compensated nut is cut nice and low. Tuning the strings to pitch brought the trem base plate perfectly level and the intonation was perfect across all strings. You won't need to spend any effort on setup unless you're very fussy. The neck is slim with a subtle asymmetry lending a shoulder to the upper side. It balances beautifully whether on the right leg, left leg or on a strap.

So, are there any cons? At this level, it's going to be matters of personal preference rather than flaws. The last Majesty I played was a Monarchy model. If I could have the satin finish on the neck and heavier frets, it'd probably be the last guitar I'd buy for a long time.

Every guitar short of a ground-up custom will result in compromises. If you want 7 strings, outstanding playability and a guitar that will cover more sonic territory than almost any other (and you have the money), this is very highly recommended.
