Maybach Lester Black Velvet 54 Custom!

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.

Lester Black Velvet 54 Custom Bigsby

This guitar design came on the market in a version not thought through to the end in 1952 but was given its due later with the emergence of British Blues-Rock in the 1960s through the incredibly creative guitar work of young English guitarists. With unbelievable sounds for the time, they celebrated moving music that forever etched the nimbus of this type of guitar into music and guitar history. 

The Maybach Lester was modeled after the dimensions used between 1957 and 1959 in terms of body and neck profiles. And the hand-wound Amber „Spirit of ’59“ pickups deliver exactly the no-frills rock sound that the great guitarists of history thrilled us with.
