This model is based on Mario's collaboration with the Selmer company of France in the 1930's. The scale length here is longer than the average steel-string guitar but also has a 14 fret neck. These guitars are very lightly strung with special strings so they are easy to fret in most cases.The extended scale provides a deeper sustain overall due to increased tension.

Another detail relating to tone change is the oval soundhole. This smaller opening releases more soundboard area around the bridge than the d-hole. It brings out a richer voicing and an even treble-to-bass balance.

I have used Bigtone pickups in these guitars. Other options are available. I can customize the strip colourings of the rosette to suit.

Every Nyberg Marquis incorporates solid body plates, a mahogany neck, ebony fingerboard, headplate w/logo, rosewood bridge, adjustable truss rod (through soundhole), chrome precision tuning heads, chrome strap buttons by request, bone nut and saddle, and includes a hardshell archtop case. Lifetime warranty.

Check the Design Ethics Page for details on construction, design, and options such as pick-ups.
