Terrible Experience Buying from Mark Holyer of WMguitars.com

This guy Mark Holyer from WM guitars(wmguitars.com) sold me a guitar online. I received the guitar in bubble wrap and it was very poorly packaged. I immediately notified Mark who took days to respond but ultimately said he would file a claim with the carrier. As requested I took all the photos of the guitar and waited. About a week later I asked for an update. And Mark replied that he had decided I was lying and that I'd made the whole thing up. I attempted to talk sense to Mark but he stopped replying. At that point I realized the type of person and business I was dealing with. In addition to wasting a great deal of my time I was then forced to file a claim with Paypal and ship the broken guitar back to Mark(at my expense) in order to get a refund. I recommend avoiding this amateur Mark Holyer at all costs. Considering the guy passes himself off as a guitar expert and yet hasn't a clue about packaging a guitar properly, that should say enough in of itself. Moving forward, the false accusations and suspect behavior coming from Mark simply reveals that while he is probably new to the guitar business, he is NOT decent. And it's not that difficult to be decent to people. Sadly Mark Holyer is just a bad apple. To call me a liar on top of sending a broken guitar is just messed up. Needless to say I won't repeat the same mistake twice and hope to save others from having the same experience.

Wmguitars.com is an awful guitar Seller

Sent me a completely different and broken guitar neck.. Being forced to file a chargeback against this SCAM SELLER.. Mark Holyer of WMguitars, apologized at first and pretended to file an insurance claim. Then a week later decided that "I broke his guitar". I could not believe the way I was treated by WM guitars. Never again. AVOID! at all costs..

Wmguitars/maison guitars ripped me off

This so called museum/guitar seller sold me a guitar which arrived broken. I notified them and instead of making things right they resorted to making accusation and refusing to help resolve the situation. A real bummer that this seller is so unprofessional. They were very rude and unpleasant from the get go. Avoid this seller. Anyone interested in knowing more of just how bad my experience turned out to be, feel free to message me. Would gladly help another buyer avoid the nightmare wmguitars of UK put me through.

maison acoustic

i have maison acoustic guitar fantastic quality sound ... this guitar made taiwan ... but now no longer in market ...

Re: maison guitars

I have a ES-335 style Maison in wine red see-through color. Very well made and a true copy with mouse ears and block inlays, but with a bolt on neck (which I don´t find has any negative impact on the sound or appearance). Very good sounding and a nice player. My Maison is approx ten years old. I bought it recently for 200$

I have owned my acoustic maison for 24 years and love it. I came here looking for info on them because I don't understand how we don't hear more about such a great guitar. I live in Australia and my maison is the only one that I have ever seen, I'm not deluded enough to think I've got the only one but this shows how uncommon they are and that is something that has baffled me for some time.

Maison W-711-12

I'm trying to find out what a Maison W-711-12 would be worth

Maison 335

Hi . I just bought a Maison 335 . I cant see where the Gibson is better in build quility . Its wine red . And i got it for only about 60 dollar or same in pounds . Im in SOUTH AFRICA .

mason red les Paul copy

I bought mine in 1986-90 in france dont know the model or price value still sounds good as the day it was bought and needs very little tuning how much is it worth ?

Maison: SAS-620 (ES-335 copy) + LPC-190W (Les Paul copy).

My Maison SAS-620 is a perfect build instrument, produced by the professional line of that Korean company. It's an exact Gibson ES-335 copy. The guitar is made in 1986.
She's build in a professional way, nothing wrong with it. Finished in red transparent color with goldware and the wood is visible wich i find really beautiful.
Altough she sounded allright, the neck humbucker was a bit to weak and trebly for my ears.
I invested in a pair of very good PAF humbuckers, the HB'59 handmade by Andreas Kloppmann (Germany).
These are really WAAAAAW! Listen to soundsamples on his site http://kloppmann-electrics.de/pickups/hb/
That Maison guitar have the sweetest tone you can imagine and can win the comparison now with any Gibson guitar, i'm sure about that.
Because i was so pleased with the quality of that Maison guitar, the moment i had the opportunity i bought a second one: It's a Maison LPC-190W. Made in 1980, as i was told. That is an exact Les Paul copy, and a heavy one also, well understood! Same story here: she's build with great craftmanship, has a glued-in neck. However, the block inlays are not mother of pearl but a kind of synthetic 'pearl'. It's a black one with goldware wich is still in good shape. This Les Paul plays very well and have very much tone and sustain.
No doubt: those (professional line) Maison guitars gonna be searched by musicians and collectors, i'm for sure, and prices will rise. If you can find such one: don't hesitate and make her yours.

Re: maison guitars

hi, my dad bought a white maison les paul deluxe along with a small park amp and a boss tuner for £50 at a boot sale in exeter, devon, England, the tuner was crap primarily because it was broken, the amp is fine, but the maison les was in a sorry state, knackerd pickup covers and machine heads, missing tail stop, dented frets, and the block inlay on the first fret was coming unstuck, my dad had the frets dressed, replaced the machine heads and pickup covers with gold parts as it was orininally he made better fitting control plates on the back and wired it so both volume and tones were individual to each humbucker, oh and the inlay was repaired, it now looks fantastic, very exspensive and shiny looking, it plays and sounds much better than the epiphone model, the head stock is much better than the epiphone and i think i prefer it to the gibson les paul i used to have. stefan price, ps my dad is the greatest!

Maison guitars

The older ones, like the FA-740D that I have, were apparently made in a five-story factory. Ground floor was the guitarmaking operation, and the top four floors made plumbing fixtures and things along that line. They were hand-made (at least mine certainly and obviously was). It's really hard to find much of anything on the original company. There's a new incarnation now, but I don't think it's the same company, it's someone who's bought the rights to the name.

Re: maison guitars

Re: maison guitars

I have bought too a used Maison guitar, a fantastic 12 strings, black with blue birds painted and it sounds wonderfully!!!! I was looking too for some news about Maison guitars but I found anything; the only thing that I remember is that about 10 years they were famous for good imitations of Les Paul guitars.

Goodbye to all Maison owners!

maison guitars

wm guitars are specialist dealers in rare and collectable guitars. maison is one of there special brands wich we have been collecting for many years ,and currently are stocking the largest selection in europe. maisons are becoming very rare nowadays. early models where handmade and often one offs in a tiny korean workshop.yooyin took over in the early 90s these models are not of the same quality and dont have the same desirability. yooyin was not in business for very long and does not exist any longer.maison also build some models for columbo and photogenic both extremly rare.maisons are very nice guitars with a high standard and finish as time has shown. iff you got one for sale or want to buy or just know more please get in touch. wm guitars dartington devon gb 01803 868040 thanks walter WWW.maisonguitars.co.uk

Re: maison guitars

I have one for about last 10 years. It was new and had american labels all over. It is stratocaster-like and sounds good.
Three years ago Jethro Tull had a concert in Zagreb, so I was very surprised when I found that Martin Barre has two Maison guitars. This is all I know about this subject. If you know more, please send a note.
