Maybach Lester Midnight Sunset 59 Aged
Packed with the character and sound of a much loved golden era instruments this Maybach Lester Midnight Sunset 59 has a skilfully pre aged finish and comes with some superb sounding dual humbucking pickups. The expertly relic'd nitrocellulose combines with sympathetically treated older looking hardware and classic Mahogany body with carved figured Maple cap. Crafted in an old world workshop in the Czech republic this family of instruments are fast making a name for producing classic design solid body guitars packed with golden era spirit and charm.
Hand built in Europe this outstanding Maybach Lester guitar has been designed right from its original concept to excite and inspire any demanding experienced player. In any hands this Midnight Sunset 59 version will feel like an old friend and displays some especially sophisticated expert ageing and relic work. From new this instrument feels played in and looks the part. These guys have managed to develop a perfect level of relic treatment in our opinion. This guitar is not over distressed, but it's enough to provide that welcome lived in look and feel most of us crave. Other features include a set of very nice Amber Spirit of 59 pickups and 24.75" scale length neck with set neck construction and some hand selected premium Mahogany in the body and neck. The figured carved top and Tune O Matic bridge with Vintage tuners are just more evidence of this ranges attention to detail.

This is what the guys at Maybach have to say about this version - Our Maybach Lester guitars, masterpieces of design and craft, were modelled after the shapes and neck profiles used between 1957 and 1959. The guitar’s magical sound was constantly redefined by hordes of guitarists in the 1960s. Typically, the customers at Amber Pickups for a PAF ask for the following: “It needs to sound vintage but lively, possibly slightly nasal but with a strong bass foundation and shimmering high-end.” And the hand-wound “Spirit of ’59” pickups deliver exactly the straightforward rock sound with which the last decades’ great guitarists have delighted us. With the right amp, the sky’s the limit. By the way: a solid mahogany body with electronics is a burden to even the most athletic guitarist. However, we guarantee that a Maybach Lester weighs less than 4 kilograms/ 9 lbs (not including the case). We only use nitro varnish on Maybach Lester models.
