Peter Maffay Signature Edition in limited edition


- Pre-order now for only 949,-€! The first instruments come with a signed label! -


The Fame Peter Maffay Signature acoustic guitar impresses with its balanced sound and its unique appearance, which was designed in close cooperation with the rock singer and guitarist Peter Maffay. In addition to its high-quality, seasoned tonewoods, the Grand Auditorium Western guitar has all the advantages that make for comfortable and accommodating handling and fingering. For example, the body is equipped with a generous cutaway and an armrest in the upper side, which is elegantly incorporated into the wooden binding. The flat neck offers a perfect grip in all 20 frets and, thanks to the 43 mm wide nut, plenty of room to master even extensive chords and fingering patterns. In addition, the gold-plated die-cast tuners guarantee precise tuning of the 6 steel strings, which intonate cleanly over the entire 650 mm scale length. Furthermore, a Fishman pickup system is built into the guitar, which transmits the acoustic sound directly to the amplifier via a piezo element under the saddle. The visual highlights are undoubtedly the Fame-Forum headstock with signature inlay, the oval soundhole and the custom laser engraving on the top. The scope of delivery includes a robust guitar case

Construction and woods

In order for the acoustic guitar to produce a balanced and at the same time powerful tone, the medium-sized, fully solid Grand Auditorium body consists of a carefully selected AAA spruce top and a body made of noble AAA Santos rosewood. With the help of the internal bracing, this combination develops warm bass, as well as clear midrange and treble frequencies, which unfold quickly and cover a wide area. At the same time, the multi-piece mahogany neck with ebony inserts promises comfortable playability in all 20 frets, which can be accessed perfectly thanks to the cutaway. In contrast to the body, which is finished with high-gloss lacquer, the neck is matt lacquered for better playability. Besides the fingerboard, the bridge and the bridge pins are made of the finest ebony

Hardware and Design

The compensated bridge inlay and the 43 mm wide bone nut ensure clean intonation of the strings, which can be easily and precisely tuned with the help of the gold-plated Fame die-cast tuners. Peter Maffay's signature in the form of a filigree inlay sits enthroned between the tuners, perfectly matching the mother-of-pearl binding of the special headstock. In addition, the headstock is equipped with a Peter Maffay custom trussrod cover. The fingerboard is made of selected ebony and features a generous Island Vine inlay made of maple, which creates a tasteful contrast to the dark precious wood.

The top

To generate a clear and balanced sound, the top is made of solid spruce. Due to its fine grain and superior sound characteristics, spruce wood is ideally suited for the construction of high-quality musical instruments. The Peter Maffay Signature Edition is therefore made with a top wood of carefully selected AAA spruce. In addition, the oval soundhole is hand-sawn and visually accentuated with a rosette of high-quality mother-of-pearl. Below the soundhole is the initial "M", which is lasered into the top and sealed with a thin high-gloss finish. The top is bordered by a filigree, multi-layered Binding of padauk and maple, which gently merges into a rounded Armrest on the upper part of the rib.

Back and sides

Another highlight of the Peter Maffay Signature Edition is undoubtedly the beautifully grained body with red, brown and yellow marbling. Consisting of hand-selected Santos rosewood, the back and sides provide crisp midrange and warm bass frequencies that develop quickly and extensively. To ensure that the grain of the back is as symmetrical as possible, it is folded out. The high-quality tropical wood varies greatly, so that each instrument is absolutely unique. Like the top, the back is also separated from the frame by an elaborate multi-ply binding of wood, so that the individual components of the body are perfectly matched to each other and create a harmonious overall picture.

Electronics

To round off the Peter Maffay Signature model in its functionality, a Fishman Sonitone pickup system is built into the body. The pressure exerted by the strings on the saddle and the piezo element underneath directly picks up the acoustic guitar's sound and sends it to the amplifier. In addition, the output signal can be individually adjusted via a control located in the soundhole. A volume and tone control help to change the volume and the tone. The active pickup system is powered by a 9V block battery, which is located in a battery compartment in the lower frame.

Label

A specially designed label is glued into the oval soundhole of the guitar, showing Peter Maffay's silhouette and autograph.

The first 50 models of the limited edition are hand-signed by Peter Maffay. The serial number is entered next to the signature.
