The perfect craftsmanship and innovative solutions found on our semi-hollowbody guitars and basses easily prove that we are among the premier manufacturers of such instruments with a company-owned manufacturing facility world-wide.
Our stunning semi-acoustic instruments are the perfect embodiment of the entire scope of our trademark synthesis between traditional craftsmanship and cutting-edge production techniques.
The tops and backs of our semi-acoustic instruments come with two bookmatched veneers that have been joined together. Merging two wafer-thin sheets of wood together is an extremely delicate process, which normally results in a noticeable seam at the glue joint. What is immediately apparent with our veneers is the absence of this seam. Thanks to our special manufacturing techniques, our Mayfield guitars and Star Bass II basses come with beautiful, seamless top veneers for a stunning and unique appearance.
The beautifully curved sides of the Mayfield and Star Bass II models are crafted from solid wood which has been shaped using special molds crafted by using cutting-edge CNC technology. But thatís not all: for perfect stability, they are fitted into special CNC- shaped frames found in the inside of the backs of our semi-hollowbody instruments.
Our tone blocks, too, are crafted using our 5 axis CNC processing centers, which not only provides all of our semi-hollowbody instruments with a perfect bond between their backs and tops but also makes them comfortably lightweight. We exclusively use solid woods to craft the sides of our instruments, and utilize veneers only for special wood species which are not available as solid lumber. Thanks to our combination of the very best that tradition and cutting-edge technology have to offer, we craft semi-hollowbody instruments with a quality that you will hardly find anywhere else!
