When a genius musician shook the music world with an ingenious guitar design long ago, no one could have expected that he had enthroned the coming queen of the electric guitar world. When this queen cemented her reign in the 1960s with legendary blues-rock sounds from incredibly talented guitar heroes, she got the rock rolling and laid a fundamental foundation for unforgettable trademark sounds. Without them, today’s guitar world would sound completely different. No wonder this guitar design has become one of the most popular in electric guitar history – and one of the most successful in the Maybach world.


We build the artful creations of our Lester Series with the best possible awareness of this great tradition of the golden Fifties. Each Lester leaves our workshop knowing it will carry on the great legacy of this genius musician to the world. And this leaves us both humble and proud.


The body shapes and neck profiles of this model’s best years (1957 to 1959) have defined the standard to which each Maybach Lester faithfully aligns. With the selection of first-class tonewoods in traditionally proven combinations, we achieve the best possible basis for creating the many different but all magical sounds with which this model has left deep traces in electric guitar history.


Two crucial issues have received our special attention. First, there is the weight of the guitar. While other manufacturers have long since moved to partially routing out their mahogany bodies to reduce weight, we use the best, lightest mahogany, just like in former days – with the result that every Maybach Lester stays under the 4 kg barrier. Secondly, we are proud to work with some famous pickup manufacturers who have developed outstanding products for this type of guitar. Like the Amber „Spirit of ’59“ humbucker, which realizes exactly the dynamic-earthy sound this guitar model stands for.
