Here we have the new Qatsi 2.0 Baritone 7, the latest iteration of John Browne’s signature guitar. Whether this is your first foray into extended range and extended scale guitars or you’re a well-seasoned vet, you’ll find the neck comfortable and the entire instrument easy to get around on.
Offering some of the highest quality craftsmanship we’ve ever come across, Mayones is building some absolutely killer guitars that have not just metal rockers turning their heads to take note. The neck on this 7-string has an extended scale length so you can get extra low with baritone strings while still having a tight response out of your strings. Nobody likes wobbly strings when you’re trying to bring the heat and drop the thunder. This baritone 7-string takes care of that and allows you to explore an extended range with such power and clarity that even your bass player will be impressed.
World-renowned guitarist John Browne and the expert luthiers over at Mayones have designed his signature series to sound and play as amazing as they look. The Bare Knuckle Nailbomb (bridge) and Cold Sweat (neck) pickups really sizzle and scream. They seem to be able to sense even the slightest of string vibration, which leads to seemingly never-ending sustain at your fingertips, whenever you need it. The hi-mids on these are really defined and you can saturate your tone with as much distortion as you’d like without worrying about ever getting a muddy note.
A simple master volume control (with push/pull coil-splitting capability) makes this a no-fuss 7-string baritone axe that always sounds great and won’t leave you with any hand fatigue after long sessions or shows.
Duvell is a metal machine that doesn’t skimp out on anything related to playability and tone. It’s a superstrat-shaped instrument with bolt-on neck and pointed horns for an aggressive look. This guitar comes in two main flavours: standard and Elite. The Alnico V Nailbomb neck humbucker has a woody and bright character when used clean; add overdrive and the tone tightens up for a focused and precise attack. The Cold Sweat humbucker is a tight and percussive ceramic powered humbucker with a high resonant peak, producing clear, detailed treble response and smooth mids.
“When I visited NAMM 2014, I tried the prototype Duvell made for Misha, I fell in love right away. It was one of the most comfortable guitars I’ve ever played that sounded aggressive and tight, great the for the music I play. Mayones craft amongst the best guitars on the market today. Very unique instruments that have been given a lot of love during their build!” – John Browne / Monuments
“If you’re looking for an ultra-high quality metal machine that doesn’t skimp out on anything related to playability and tone, then the Duvell is for you! They aren’t cheap, but no quality instrument is ever going to be cheap. Personally, I rarely order new guitars, but I placed an order for a Duvell Elite with a pale moon ebony fretboard after playing this guitar. That should say enough.” – Wired Guitarist
“The attention to detail that Mayones put into every single one of their instruments is very apparent – it radiates from the tip of my Duvell’s headstock all the way down to the input jack. You need to hold one in your hands to really appreciate this level of craftsmanship.” – Luke Hoskin / Protest The Hero
