Since the 1950s, the typical treble-rich sound of this type of guitar has been called twang.
Initially, the T-style models were mainly used in Country and Rock‘ n‘ Roll music. Still, thanks to their distinctive, assertive single-coil sound and their extremely robust construction, they have found their way into all musical genres worldwide – from Jazz (Mike Stern) to Blues (Roy Buchanan) to Rock (Rolling Stones).
To keep the twang sound from becoming unpleasant, the Maybach Teleman models are equipped with special pickups from Amber Pickups that bring out the best tonal characteristics of the respective woods used for the body, neck, and fingerboard – a masterful combination!
The MAYBACH® Teleman
We only use nitro lacquer on Maybach Teleman guitars, which are available in Butterscotch, Cream, Caddy Blue, Miami Green, Wine Red metallic, and 2-Tone or 3-Tone Sunburst. All our electric guitars are finished with an aged finish, as it is undeniable that the guitar’s resonance is positively affected – not only but also by the distinctive cracks that an authentic nitro finish develops over time.
