    Whoever takes the plunge on this beauty will not be disappointed. Mayones surpasses many other boutique bass builders in quality and sound regardless of price!

    The Mayones is no longer up for trade. Considering offers for sale only.

    Getting a lot of PMs on the weight. I don't have a scale, but it's less than my Fodera and I'm going to say 9.5 to 9.75. I've done 4 hour gigs with it and for a modestly smaller stature this bass wasn't an issue to play for that long...even with a trick back.

    Thanks!

    I've got a Jabba. Sweet Jazz basses. I LOVE the neck and how low the action can go. Seriously good stuff.
