Having wowed us with the Lester single-cut, Maybach’s Albatroz off ers another take on a familiar vintage theme for sensible money. Huw Price wings it…

Maybach Albatroz 65-2 £1,614

The Albatroz’s fingerboard is bound rosewood with pearloid trapezoid inlays

We first encountered this model on Maybach’s stand at the The Guitar Show in Birmingham earlier this year, and despite it being surrounded by some of Maybach’s outrageously flamey Lester models, this horny little devil certainly attracted a lot of attention from people wandering the show floor.

Maybach isn’t coy about what this guitar is all about. What the Lester models are to Les Pauls, the Albatroz series is to SGs. Until recently, all of Maybach’s Albatroz models replicated the single-P-90 ‘student’ model, but this is the first with double humbuckers – a set of German-made Amber Spirit Of ’59 PAF replicas.
