I have owned two Pavel basses (both were high end jazz deluxe models) and have one on order. Great instruments, VERY well made. The Aryel I believe is his most expensive model. Go to his fb page and you'll see several pictures of Aryel's he's put out, you can see the level of quality.
Pavel is a class act. Super easy to talk to and invests his time in his customers. You can call him anytime and he's happy to answer any questions you might have. He is usually able to tell you a little more about a specific bass.
All that said, great basses, great luthier, awesome customer service. You won't be disappointed.
