    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!

    Hi MJ --

    Do you know how much this bass weighs?

    Thanks, .... Doug ("funkyjudge")
     
  6. 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.
