For those that aren't familiar, Mayones is a Polish company that has been around for quite some time now! They are reknowned for the highest quality of craftsmanship in their basses/guitars. This one in particular is equipped with the venerable EMG 81/85(Other pickup options are available) combo and is unbelievably shred-worthy. A three way switch and one volume/one tone controls your electronics(coil splitting is also available). The body of the Setius Pro is a comfortably carved piece of mahogany capped with a lovely flamed maple cap. The Bolt-on neck of this beauty is a 5 piece maple/mahogany combo with a very comfortable "C" shape. The 43 mm nut width is very comfortable with the 16" fingerboard radius. 24 Medium-jumbo are set in the lovely unmarked rosewood fingerboard. This axe also features a Schaller FLoyd Rose PRO, Schaller M6 Mini tuners and a locking nut.
This guitar is exceptionally comfortable and is very well designed. You can tell Mayones took their time with the details on this one. The neck heel is exceptionally comfortable and combining the with the cutaway of the lower bout, makes play in the upper registers effortless. The EMG's obviously are very versatile, but tend to lean far more toward high gain amplifiers, with an obvious crunchy growl. The guitar is very lightweight, due to it's bolt-on design. The Schaller Floyd stays in tune well despite ridiculous amounts of dive-bombing.
All my reviews are done through the same collection of Amplifiers:
Effects are typically not used. Clean tones on this guitar are very clear, but the guitar screams into overdrive when plugged into the Orange Mesa Channel. High gain playing is obviously what this guitar is geared towards, but that in no way should dissuade non-high gain players. The cleans are very even, crystal clear and this guitar sings in the upper registers of any non-dirty channel it was run through.
Mayones craftsmanship is second to none. Fretwork is phenomenal and woods are exceptionally well-chosen. Hardwear is solid and will stand up to years of even the heaviest playing. Mayones is an option for those with the money to spend. There are a LOT of guitars out there in these price ranges, but if you are a shredder or heavier artist, you owe it to yourself to try a Mayones if you can find one. I highly recommend Mayones! It is my favorite condiment. Sorry, a bad joke!

Here is a guitar that I'm from Poland is ... ... What a beautiful country, I find myself wanting to take a vacation ... Finally in this case is one of the country after what came to me as this guitar.
A handle 24 cases without INLAYS in mahogany 5 piece Maple neck on a bead profile frets are very well INSRE Exceeds ca not, it's a highway, sober effective claaaaaasse
Shaller hardware ... yes yes sir, no trick or ping pong or chang liu, no no from the German of the solid, that tears of your dog, a floyd lo profile with fine tuners of the softer market and not hurt the fingers because they had the intelligence to put the screws over grazing, the mechanical oil bath in 3x3 and strap lock of origin as yes sir
All this accompanied by electronic efficient HSS (but you can take cke config as you want in fact you got that request since it is hand made) any Bartolini home (but you can ask for or schaller seymour ) I wanted to try one of the microphones Barto ... scrapes chuis not regret the trip!
1 knob of tone, 1 volume knob splittable (I never like the splits but it is not appreciable for versatility
The body is thin, heavy, two-piece mahogany powaaa it seems, I still looking for the junction between the two parts is a terrific assembled Scary, ettable flamed maple for me ... but you can take two or three other wood on offer since it is the hand ... yes I know I RPET and all this with a nice cream binding that goes
Or so yes a handle super well done, super soft satin varnish, a D-profile, end comfortable in any position, access to an acute fall, the frets are very well finished, it's pure joy
The guitar is neither too heavy nor too light, say it has the weight of the quality we will not peter back but its presence indicates empty ... it sounds nice with great resonance and it is feels good vibration .. But you tell me you got many of the plug!
Yeah I just
I already have a fender highway which suits me perfectly but I needed a bigger sound ... On the other cot chuis not Cresus
Chuis then used this scraper is super versatile, with a round in his very pleasant, the five positions (split over the treble) are very usable sounds slammin ... just enough to clear sounds out of phase to soften it off, not break huge output level, the simple are soft and round, makes you twice the grain that goes tit and more in the face, if you want big sound that you sonneras large ca clear but it's still the end is not that big degeu drool everywhere and done in his bed, it's not Japanese grain-free straight as a personality that puts you in a souvenir bag .. .
So compare my fender, it's more couillu more punchy, but she knows how to be tender and sweet ... aaaahhh guitars Eastern
The fun is non stop I The user for two days ... it's very good, not tired because of the handle, not turning the microphone position ... This would sound not scratching sounds in all positions, the settings are fine since the knobs are very progressive ...
I searched long asssez have a more massive than the fender for passages nags, or for something more angry, well the chuis served, plus I keep a very complete versatility is excellent I would not be afraid to leave with just one in the concert ... It can provide in all areas.
It is in Roros 1200 ... There's no serious competition that price, frankly, in this area with schaller, handmade, a super beautiful blue lacquer for mine, a head of the same color, body and mahogany neck I ... can not see xavier be small, but I find Mayones presents a much more versatile product Axa big rock still ...
I would compare this model with ibanez jackson and the same price ... Dumoine Or we can try to compare but frankly it wins hands down.

olaf greuntsson's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
As stated in the notice Previous, it's hand made in Poland, 24 Bolt-medium jumbo frets.
I tested with 2 humbuckers and split Schaller, and thus the famous Schaller floyd.
rglage Volume, Tone with push-pull split the two microphones both slecteur 3 positions.
The handle end is indeed trs, fast, the only thing I blame him personally is that I'm used rounder and narrower ... and larger frets.
But hey, even when his little amrita 9. Especially since I m'aperois I forgot to say that the table is beautiful Saddle (transparent black glaze).
So a round, I said, a little flat and broad my taste, but no particular problem. Especially since in fact a real highway ... and until the 24th box, with a heel well dcoup trs. Not having test stand, I can only say that the game is sitting comfortable trs.
A vacuum it sounds okay, but the volume is not standard (perhaps the floyd?). Who cares you say, it is an amp to play with these things t. ..
Come on, 7.
Time to get srieuses (finally branches to the things anyway) ...
I tested it on an all-tube amp George Dennis, Czech brand that nobody knows but that these good people have AF rcemment cit in their newsletter. Clearly it's nickel, especially in a central microphone splitter. In standard ausii crunch. In disto ... has sent. Problem, even if we say that the amp n'tait trs not metal, maybe send a pa enough for the most violent styles. As stated in the opinion Previous is a distortion "subtle". Not big nag fat. The pickups are not typs Schaller "black-tribal-viking-metal" (wink Vincent).
But what emerges is a versatile trs guitar, jazz styles dja couillus well. pompompom ... 8 because I am a fan of doom-viking-pagan-metal ...
I think you understand, APRS an hour of testing and hsitations, I finally left without. BECAUSE I am not a versatile guitar. I cheche is a war machine size for the most extreme styles, and this excellent Mayones does not surpass in this area my Washburn and Seymour. Even if I RPET, it is certainly more versatile.
Finally, a versatile scraper, a good report quality price trs, I would immediately buy if I did not find the shovel dja that suits me.
I think that this advice also applies to setius The models, which replace the recently is because the site of Mayones, I do not see any diffrence in SPECIFICATIONS. Note, it should sound the death with Seymour or Di Marzio ...
Come on, I leave on good terms, 8 (and not far from 9).
A word ...
