Maybach Little Wing Flat Top Cutaway Havanna Tobacco Aged
*Incluye Case Deluxe Maybach
Riding with the Wind!
When you’ve been through it all, and when you’re at a loss, when your guitar world seems to be at a standstill, the Maybach Little Wing will be at your side. A design that appears self-contained, like a small island in the endless Pacific Ocean, and that promises one thing above all: freedom! Freedom from conventions, traditionalisms, antiquities, and superfluities. The given goal of our Little Wing is to be wide open to everything, the ease of flying over obstacles and letting the flow arise in every respect. The guitar, in general, is a magical instrument, and the Maybach Little Wing is the supernatural witch that will mesmerize you, too.
Music is my Religion! (Jimi Hendrix)
The Maybach Little Wing approaches its mission to make this world a better place in various builds to be adequately rigged for all conditions. Once with an arched top, and another time with a flat top. Once with Amber „Spirit of ’59“ humbucker, another time with Amber P90 or Charlie Christian pickups. Common to all versions of the Little Wing is a sandwich body construction with a solid maple top and back and a body frame made of solid Okoume, a wood native to Gabon with excellent sound characteristics. The large cavities of this construction routed around a clever center block (no feedback!) ensure a sound character that is airy in the best sense, providing great versatility, dynamics, and sovereignty.
The fact that the mahogany neck with its rosewood fingerboard is glued to the body via a long tenon neck joint also benefits vibration transmission. It lets you feel your input into the guitar directly and creates the guitar’s output as yours. Mission completed!
Many expressive, tastefully lightly aged nitrocellulose finishes such as Dirty Lemon, Havana Tobacco, Earl Grey, Midnight Sunset, and others are available.
Little Wing makes you fly!
For the body skeleton, we use Okoume (Aucoumea klaineana), a wood originating from Gabon with excellent sound characteristics. The structural heart is the sustain block, which is routed in one piece with the body. We build the Little Wing with flat and arched tops. We always use flamed solid Bosnian or North American maple for the top and back. The mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard, which is glued to the body with a long tenon joint, ensures optimal vibration transfer of the Little Wing.
The MAYBACH® Little Wing
A slotted peghead and nickel-plated Kluson open-gear tuners support the vintage look of the Little Wing. You can choose from a wide range of colors and different pickup settings (P90, Charlie Christian, PAF). With or without a cutaway.
