Mensinger Custom Guitars are made in Poland, where there is a tradition of instrument-building tracing back to violinmakers centuries ago. Harnessing the precision and craftsmanship developed over generations, Mensinger builds fully-modern instruments with cutting edge features and components. Mensingers are designed to deliver strong results for modern-day musicians who need hard-working instruments.
You don't have to be able to pronounce "MjÌülnir" to know this headless Mensinger is a ripping electric guitar. The headless design certainly gets your attention, but it's not just for looks. The headless design makes this Mensinger a great choice for traveling, and it also stays balanced on a strap. Plus, the tuning is more stable on a headless guitar than with traditional headstock designs. This MjÌülnir weighs in at at 7 lbs 4.5 oz, and although it has a 25.5" scale length, the entire length of the guitar is only 31".
This 2010s MjÌülnir features a double-cutaway Ash body with nice contours for comfort. It has a simple natural finish that shows off the Ash grain. It has a 24-fret neck, so you can stretch all the way out. For pickups, it has a set of German-made Haeussel humbucker pickups—a VIN N+ in the neck position and a TOZZ B in the bridge. The humbuckers can be coil-tapped for a single coil sound, and when they're wide open, they are smoking hot, pushing your amp into smooth saturation. The volume and tone control give you plenty of flexibility to dial in the right sound.
This 2010s Mensinger MjÌülnir headless shows some signs of play and use, but it is nice shape all around (see photos). The build quality is impressive—we would put this Polish-made guitar a cut above anything imported from Asia, even though the price may be similar. It includes its original gig bag. This is a shredder's guitar, that's for sure!
