Built in the Czech Republic, every Maybach Guitars is hand-crafted by a small team of experienced guitar makers. An industrial assembly-line production of guitars is unthinkable for everyone on the Maybach team.

The result is an instrument that simply oozes quality. From the realistic ageing with light checking to the superb fretwork and quality components, these guitars rival the big brands they take inspiration from. Think custom shop feel, playability and quality and you get the picture.

The 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 – as a matter of fact it cannot be grasped. After all, it embraces everything from Peter Green to Slash. 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.
