Mensinger are a custom guitar and bass company based in Poland who produce some absolutely stunning handcrafted instruments. Every guitar they produce is available left handed and each one is fully customizable within reason at a price that will blow you away…
If you already missed it, go and check out the Left Handed Mensinger Guitars Part 1 article to see some of the more traditional models. This article will take a look at some of the more crazy designs to emerge from the Mensinger workshop. Ever fancied a guitar which is also a bass? Or perhaps a model which satisfies both your 6 and 7-string needs? Mensinger probably have you covered… ;)
Again, the Mensinger website is only available in Polish so I have tried my best to translate a few basic details about each guitar. To learn more I would recommend contacting Adrian at Public Peace (link below) for a speedy reply.
Mensinger Beast Left Handed Guitar
The Beast is one of the latest models from Mensinger which offers the combination of both guitar and bass to unlock a variety of different sonic possibilities. The instrument is constructed in such a way that the guitar and bass have independent electronic circuits and input jacks which gives the possibility of separating the signals into two different amps.
Mensinger Columbia Lefty Guitar
The Columbia was created around the design of Mensinger’s Eagle bass model. This unique design features a sleek, contoured body with a maple top. It is available with either a set or bolt-on neck with HH or HSS pickup configurations.
Mensinger Monster Guitar
The Monster was created after Mensinger realised many players were using both 6 and 7-string guitars in one gig. This double-necked instrument features both a 6-string and 7-string guitar setup for the ultimate in versatility. It features either an ash or mahogany body with flame maple top along with a maple neck and Brazilian rosewood fingerboard.
Mensinger Predator Guitar
The Mensinger predator is similar to the Beast in that it incorporates both a 6-string guitar and 4-string bass into its double neck design. However in this model Mensinger have placed the bass neck on top rather than in the bottom position. Available with a maple or mahogany body with maple neck and Brazilian rosewood fingerboard.
Mensinger Taurus Guitar
The Taurus is another double neck instrument from Mensinger which is specifically designed for players who utilise a tapping style of playing guitar. The narrow space between the two necks makes it easier to play when using this playstyle. It features either an ash or mahogany body with a maple neck and Brazilian rosewood fingerboard.
Mensinger Stork Guitar
The Mensinger Stork comes with either a bolt-on or set neck. The guitar features an ash or mahogany body with maple or mahogany neck and Brazilian rosewood fingerboard.
The Mensinger website looks great but is unfortunately only currently available in Polish which necessitates using some description of translation software when browsing the site. This is obviously less than ideal (and less than reliable!) so it would be great to see Mensinger launch an English version of their website in order to appeal to a much greater market.
