Mayson ARKANSAS Limited Edition marquis model
Marquis model, spruce and bocote, Fishman FLEX PLUS, GM-45 gigbag
One of our most beautiful creations. The Arkansas is a very loud guitar that is clear and has a complexity in tone normally only seen with guitars many times its price. The quality of the solid German spruce top and the beauty of the bocote sides and back are jaw dropping, as is its sound. This guitar responds so well to the player's touch it is a true joy and inspiration to play. All the details in your playing you worked so hard on to get right, are now clearly audible and make you play even better.
The latest developments and quality improvements have all been implemented in the Arkansas: Satin finished neck for perfect playability, Tusq nut and saddle for improved overtones and richness in sound, ebony fingerboard and bridge for an even faster response and more presence. The famous Mayson-design machine heads are made by Gotoh Japan, making these the best in the market.The new Fishman Flex Plus pickup has discrete controls mounted in the side for volume, treble and bass. The battery access is easily mounted in the lower bout.
The slightly wider neck is perfect for fingerstyle players and it still is comfortable for the strummer.
The elegant, luxurious look and professional quality are complemented by the luxurious Mayson gigbag.
No endangered woods were used to build this guitar, no need to apply for Cites permits.
A professional set-up is done at the Mayson European Service Center.
