Ah.. The Mavis.  Like the hit song that writes itself in the shower after a lifetime of working on songs, the first Mavis brought together different parts of my guitar making journey in one feverish week of inspired exploration. 

I can't tell you what to do with it other than to make it your own.  Although it's a solid body guitar some people record it acoustically.  Doug Wamble plays Jazz on it. Adam Miller finds his fingerstyle grooves on it.   Tyler Bryant burns it to the ground.  If you're looking for instrument that will show you things, this is it.   It's not specifically an acoustic instrument, thats what our steel resonators are for, but its considerably lighter than the steel ones if that's a concern for you. 

Hear what some people have done with it here:Official MAVIS Playlist

"The mavis arrived today.   It’s absolutely stunning.  It’s feels great and sounds even better.   What a joy to own something so amazing.  I will get years and years of enjoyment out of it.

I want to say a special thank you for understanding, being patient, and being just an all around stand up business.   Anyone should feel honored to do business with you. 

I wish i could tell anyone who is considering one of your guitars about my experience.   I’m a customer for life.   I’ll take very good care of your amazing handiwork.   Well done and thank you.

"I'm not normally one to struggle to find words.

It's out of control. It sounds like nothing I've ever heard before, but exactly what I expected. Been playing it for three hours straight now.

The neck feels perfect. A massive credit to your craftsmanship bro. The one thing you can't hear in the videos is the way it makes you want to let that note linger. I've read your posts about the notes you don't play. But now I completely understand. It sounds awesome when you play all the notes. And it sound just as good when you don't play them. I drove home waaaay too fast today. It really is a trip having one here! Thank y'all so much. You haven't had the end of me spamming your posts though. Here's to recording an album with this beast. Bout to smash through a bourbon. So cheers boys!


"Hey Matt, received my Mule yesterday afternoon and am having a hard time putting it down. Please accept my profound thanks and pass my thanks on to Phil and Adam as well for creating such a beautifully crafted and amazing sounding guitar. It is truly inspiring and I can already feel it pulling my playing into new directions.

"Thanks for doing what you do.  I had high expectations and you have exceeded them. I’m going to throw down a deposit on a mulecaster. Really dig the so-called “Posencaster.”

Nick S, my advise? Forget f hole, get pick guard.

Nick S.

I was on the fence with it... but I may heed your advice.

Mike A.

I’m curious as to why you say to forget the f hole. I like the look without a pick guard. 

Danny K.

Mike I love mine, I use a Meyer (suction Cup) Mic on the resonator in addition to the built in pickup, it is a unique sound.

I am a strummer and realized I needed to cut very short my nails on my strumming hand, I have hit the pine with them and I can see it.

If you don't want the guard, it is a good look.  I figure Matt could retro fit the guard later if I decided I want it.
