Experiences with Mayones Caledonius?
I'm GASing for the Mayones Caledonius 5 Classic but I can't try it here in Switzerland (one local dealer, it's an order-only model).
There's very little on youtube and on the forums.
- Any experiences with this one?
- What is the neck like?
- How do these Bartolinis sound with the stock preamp?
I currently play a Stingray Classic, Am Dlx Jazz 2011 and a Sandberg Basic Ken Taylor 5 (delano PUs).
Thanks and all best from Switzerland!
never heard of them but I think you are closer to them than most of TB members, hopefully somebody did try them out :D I drove a couple of times from New Orleans to El Paso, and that's almost twice the distance between Switzerland and Poland :D
Fastolf, you have probably seen this thread already. But if not.

Can't say anything about the Caledonious but I used to have a Patriot with bartolini and an aguilar preamp. Nice bass, modern sounding but sweeter than with EMGs. The neck's on the thin side, somewhat comparable to a modern jazz bass profile. It's heavy.
The friend I sold it to still plays it lovingly to this day. If you're passing through Geneva and would like to try it, drop me a PM and I'll try to arrange that.
I also have a Fame Baphomet NTB4 (basically a Warwick knockoff manufactured by Mayones for musicstore) - its neck is MUCH fatter.
