Seymour Duncan and Mayones have again teamed up to give away a very special one-of-a-kind guitar to one lucky player.

This time it's a Regius 7 with a Wenge top, flamed Alder back (yes, flamed Alder) custom Black Pearl binding, and a Schaller Hannes bridge. The neck is an 11-ply Wenge-Mahogany-Padouk-Maple 'Exotic I' neck with an Ebony fingerboard and Sperzel locking tuners, while electronics consist of our SH4-7 JB and SH2-7 Jazz passive humbuckers.

Seymour created the 6-string versions of these classic humbuckers while in England in 1974, and it remains his favorite set today. The JB's over-wound coils, provide high output with just the right amount of sustain and distortion, while the Jazz Model in the neck for calibrated output and a clear, bright sound which is as perfect for articulate rhythm playing as it is for detailed high-speed soloing. This set is great for everything from hard blues to heavy rock and each is built at the Seymour Duncan Factory in Santa Barbara, California.

The Regius series is the quintessence of what a Mayones guitar is – tonal capabilities derived from finest wood selection, superb build quality, and top-notch hardware – finely handcrafted in Poland.

 To win this beautiful, unique, professional-spec instrument, entrants must upload a video of themselves playing to a backing track (to be provided by Mayones and Seymour Duncan, in the key of G#). The winner will be decided by public vote. You don't have to be a super-speedy shredder to enter - just bring your inspiration, talent and creativity. 

Entries can be submitted through the 23rd of July. Then there will be one week of public voting followed by a further week for the top 50.
