yowser, hadn't seen that one yet. Looks spectacular !
Gibson is going to love it when Maybach starts distributing in the US
My Lester Cherry Lane!! I bought it about 5 months ago. Compared it to a Midnight, Havana and a Custom and this one was the most beautiful, clear and open sounding one of the bunch by far! I'm so happy with it, and when I compared it to a Gibson Les Paul Classic 2017 I was absolutely sure I'd made the right choice!
Oh by the way, has anyone noticed the Cherry Lane ones are more bright than the other ones? And does anybody know of any worthwhile upgrades to do to Maybachs? Not that there's anything wrong with it, but if there are some cheap ways to make it even better, let me know! Cheers!
Beautiful fiddle you have there Chemo ! Congrats !
I upgraded mine with a Faber locking ABR-1 with E-sert studs (you can see them in this thread). I also changed the wiring to 50's wiring and put in PIO caps.
The bridge made a pretty big difference. Oh, it's wasn't really cheap. Somewhere around 100 euro if I recall correctly. The caps were like 20 or something.
The caps and wiring did make a difference (especially the wiring making the tone controls respond differently) but not as big as the bridge.
Next upgrades will be a bone nut and a Faber locking alu tailpiece.
Good luck with your Maybach. Lets us know when you decided to put some upgrades on it. Long may you enjoy
lol, by the way. This thread just won't die (having said that, I did necro it a couple of times too).
Ray, have you tried the P90 Gold Rush? I'm curious as to how it compares to the other ones. A Gibson Les Paul Tribute with P90's used to be my main guitar, but my Maybach is quickly taking its place.
Oh and was it also your experience that the Cherry Lane one is brighter than the Midnight one?
No, I haven't tried the P90 one. As for a Cherry Lane being brighter than Midnight ones, no.. it depends on the guitar.
I have no doubts the P90 Gold Rush will be really good though. Maybach makes lovely fiddles.
Thanks, I was curious because the store where I bought mine said they noticed this pattern of the Cherry Lane ones being brighter. I didn't want a Cherry Red one, didn't want the thicker neck profile, but man it just sounded gooooood. And now I'm used to her, I don't think I'll ever want something else!
