FRETBOARD

A guitar with many sounds!

When this guitar design first saw the light of day in 1955, it was primarily intended to address kids and students. But it took only a short time before full-grown professionals surrendered to the charm of simplicity and turned this student guitar into a fiery Rock ’n‘ Roll beast. 

Mahogany for the body and the glued neck, an excellent wraparound bridge, plus real good pickups like Amber P90 or humbucker, is the magic formula by which every Lester JR is flexing its muscles. 

capitol

ORIGINALLY DESIGNED FOR BEGINNERS AND STUDENTS, THIS MOST PURISTIC OF ALL GUITAR DESIGNS MUTATED INTO A BRIGHTLY SHINING TORCH OF ROCK 'N' ROLL WITHIN A VERY SHORT TIME.

The MAYBACH® Lester Jr

Each Maybach Lester Jr. is built entirely of lightweight mahogany. Its incredibly comfortable neck profile, modeled after this models best years from 1957 to 1959, is the entrance to the world of this fascinating guitar, which personifies honesty and directness like no other.
