“After spending the past decade building some of the world’s finest Fender-inspired guitars, this new design from the Macmull team has both Kalamazoo and California in its DNA,” the magazine explains.
“In many ways it’s a best-of-both-worlds situation. You’ll find Hendrix, Mayer, Townshend and Gibbons tones here in one supremely comfortable machine, and the snappy attack gives way to smooth, even and lengthy sustain. Both ergonomically and sonically, this is an exceptional solidbody design.”

A full review of the Stinger appeared in Guitar back in April.
“Launched in October 2020, the Stinger is a Macmull model with a difference. A compact, original design, it’s described as a ‘workhorse’ and comes at a more accessible price-point than the company’s other instruments,” the review reads.
“It might be more affordable than its stablemates, but the Stinger still benefits from Macmull’s RVT (Real Vintage Tone) system, which sees grain, weight, age when cut, moisture levels and frequency response all taken into consideration when matching bodies and necks. Even the electronic components are selected with the stated aim of retaining the wood’s ‘basic predicted sound.’”
