Mayones : Left-Handed Guitars and Basses

Founded in 1982 in Poland, Mayones Guitars are famed for their high-quality handmade custom guitars and basses.  Mayones market their guitars as being something a little different to the norm, for players who want to stand out from the crowd and be noticed.

Mayones offer a good number of their guitars and basses in a left-handed version, with no added up-charge for the privilege. The images below show the range of models available, but keep in mind that a variety of extra options and colors are offered when ordering.

At present, left-handed guitarists can grab any fixed bridge model from the Regius and Setius series, whilst bassists can have any of the Be and Jabba series guitars.

Mayones Website

The Mayones website is very slick, polished affair, however there is no mention of left-handed availability in sight.  As a result we had to contact the company directly to discover this information.  Luckily their customer service is fantastic and replies were received very quickly.

    They also have a sub brand called Fame (like Squier to Fender) which is sold exclusively by Music Store in Cologne. I actually went to Cologne to try them out. While the non tremolo models were quite OK the tremolo looked a bit cheap to me. These guitars can also be customized to a degree and their prices are reasonable. Mind you, these are still handmade guitars.
