An original design packed with the company's hand-wound pickups and Luxe Bumblebee capacitors.

Jerusalem, Israel (October 15, 2020) -- We are proud to introduce our latest design model- The Stinger.

This work-horse of an instrument is a completely fresh, all-original design not only aesthetically, but also under the hood you will find and hear the culmination of years worth of our sonic-breakthroughs and advancements.

This no-nonsense guitar has an almost chameleon-like ability to effortlessly play any genre of music and sound like it was created specifically to play it, both on stage or in the studio.

You can expect all of our usual specs (from our very own hand-wound pickups & RVT system all the way down to the pot knobs) and everything in between. This Stinger deeply cuts through the mix and packs a whole boat-load of dynamic range to boot.

The Stinger Features:

  • Lightweight – all Stingers weigh under 3.5kg/7.71lbs.
  • Macmull RVT hand wound pickups.
  • Matt Nitrocellulose Finish.
  • Single Action Truss Rod.
  • Bone Nut.
  • 12” Radius.
  • 25.5” scale length.
  • Luxe Bumblebee Capacitor.

Much like all of our classic-design models, the Stinger was built with the same philosophy and emphasis which creates instruments that really cut though the mix and have lots of dynamic range.

What is entirely new about this model is that it has a freshness in that it doesn’t in any way associate itself with any other past designs – both within the Macmull catalogue and anywhere else for that matter.

The Stinger model is starting at $2990.00 at retailers worldwide or directly online at www.macmull-guitars.com/stinger – with free shipping to customers in the USA.

  • Learn how to use standard, drop D, and uncommon alternate tunings in drone contexts.

Playing a melody or solo with a “drone” means playing over just one note or, in some instances, one chord. Besides playing without any harmonic accompaniment, it is about as simple a concept as one can image, which also means the possibilities are endless. We’ll look at ways to use drones in a variety of contexts, from ancient to contemporary, blues to metal, traditional to experimental.
