Re: el maya guitars

I have an EM-1300 which was sold to me as "a one-off, hand-made for the 197X Frankfurt Guitar Show"; however, the guy went bust and still owes me £300, so this could be complete bullsh1t!

It has a three-piece (maple/walnut/maple) through neck with rosewood fingerboard, sandwiched b/w a light (walnut or mahogany?) body. Cream purfling with herringbone pattern. MoP dot markers, brass hardware.

It's a well-built, solid guitar, but lacking in character. I replaced the horribly microphonic pickups with a Bill Lawrence rail humbucker at the the neck and Mighty Mite h/b at the bridge; both are cream, so match v. well. Also fitted a GK-2A midi pickup.

Suits me fine, I'm quite fond of it.
