Sold Out

UPDATE:  The next two Mondays will be Modest-less, we are waiting on cases for them.  We will continue to build them in anticipation of the MOST MODEST MONDAY where you'll have the best chance to get one.   Stay tuned for the specific date. 

$2700 shipped. 

Behold! The Modest Mavis. Modest in appointments but not in sonic inspiration.   I want to get these powerful music tools to more people so we are doing things a bit differently.

But first about the guitar.  It's just like our normal Mavis but to bring the cost down: 1. Flat back instead of arched. 2. Nor binding or purfling. It's a hammer in the toolbox. 3. No knobs.  Use the amp. Having no knobs in the circuit also gives it a more natural acoustic response when plugged in. But if you find yourself really wanting knobs after there's room under the pickguard to have your local guy add them. 

How do you get one?

Available guitars are released before noon EST on Mondays. Select from the drop down menu to see the exact instruments in stock currently and available.  If there are none, they are sold out and check back next Monday! If you are international then after paying for you I'll send you another invoice for DHL shipping. Canada is around $300, UK/Europe around $550 and Australia around $1000. 

There will be no wait list for these or custom orders. We will make them as we can and post them here. This will be the only way to purchase them. Deposits for  other instruments can not count towards these.

For a video talking about them -

How do they sound? -

Flat back, except on a couple prototype models listed here. They weight 6.5 lbs. No knobs which gives the guitar a little more air and transparency. Custom hard shell case.

I think I`ll go soft case. Anyone looking for a tweed Mavis case? I`m in NYC

I see there have been red and blue. Moss green?

Always 'sold out' no matter when I check on Mondays. :(  I feel like I must be doing something wrong.

Will you ever make (or have you ever made) a Modest Mavis with a hollow metal body?  Also, one vote here for Modest Mavis guitars with a cutaway! :D

Any idea when the next batch will be available?
