Sold Out

NOTE:  No Modest Mavis will be listed on Feb 5th. They will be listed the following week.

$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. Almost all of these guitars are aged in some way.

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.

How do they sound? -

All sales are final.

Is it possible to use baritone strings in the Modest Mavis? if so do I need to adjust the nut or the intonation?

Are they available now? 
The “sold out” is gone from the Modest Mavis page, but I haven’t seen any up for sale. 
Many thanks.

Watched closely all morning and only ever saw 8 of 10 get posted.  Was hoping to get a crack at one of the dark cutaway models but never saw them go up.  Maybe next time.

Update:  They went up around 2pm, I snagged one, and 48 hours later it is in my lap and it is fabulous!  Don’t give up, friends!

Thank you for the invite Matt. Didn't get a Modest Mavis this time - I will patiently await.

Could there ever be a green one?!
