Over the last few months we see an increased activity of companies, mainly from China, offering copies of Mayones instruments on a mass scale. Although we feel proud our hard work is worthy of imitation we feel obliged to warn that your hard-earned money is at risk!
These replicas can be mostly found on popular auction sites among original Mayones guitars and basses offered by official Mayones representatives.
Auctions with counterfeits frequently use Mayones logo, Mayones brand name, Mayones model names, as well as photos, specification lists, and descriptions of original Mayones products. While prices of these instruments seem very tempting, their quality remains a mystery.
The first warning should be its price. Despite discount policies of our representatives, a value below an equivalent of 1.000 € (approx. 1.100$) is not what you pay for a brand new high quality hand-crafted instrument.
The next thing you should pay attention to is seller’s country and seller’s name. If the listed country or/and company name cannot be found in Dealers section on Mayones’ or Mayones Distributors’ websites, such a product can be likely considered as a counterfeit.
The genuine Mayones guitars and basses are hand-crafted by our team of skilled luthiers in our facilities in Gdansk, Poland exclusively. It’s always been the core of the top-notch quality Mayones is renowned for.
You own your dream Mayones guitar or bass and we are aware it simply cannot be kept in secret. However, to protect your Genuine Mayones Instrument:
• do not post photos where serial number is clearly visible or blur the area with the number to make it impossible to read
• do not post photos of Certificate of Authenticity where the serial number or/and a unique CN number is visible
Enjoy your Mayones instrument and thank you for supporting original products!
