Secret Vault Series


" My MG Blue Pond Myrtle Tenor Classic arrived safely. I am totally awed by this beauty! The craftsmanship is superb and she plays like a dream - love the radiused fretboard. The tone is rich and sublime and boy do those notes resonate. And the wood - absolutely incredible to see the various hues in different shades of light. - it really does shimmer.  All of my expectations have been exceeded. A huge thank you to the entire Mya-Moe team!"
