    I found the website of a Polish luthier, Mayones. They have two lines, "Mayones" and "Flame." Has anybody ever heard of these?
    Some of the pics are yellow - that's the way they are on the website.

    They have Jazz and Stingray copies. Cool (to me) is that the 5-string looks like a SR4:

    I really like some of the body shapes. There's the Be:

    and the Comodous:

    I think if these sounded as good as they looked, they'd be incredible.

    Has anyone played one?

    Nobody? I thought with stuff this nice looking, somebody would have heard of it!
     
  4. never heard of them, but some of them do look very nice.

    the "be" looks like a warwick copy, i think.

    Sorry to answer this late, but I found this post two minutes ago.
    The Mayones lutherie is actually a brand, not a luthier. I play their stingray copy and like it very much. I have also tried the Commodus 6-string and both of the Pariots. The ones pictured, because I was there a day after the pictures were taken. I find them... the way I'll buy one in a few weeks! Very well made, great playability.Hiram Bullock plays one on his solo project (Be4 fretted) and they have made a signature model for David Osrin.
    I may be able to post soundclips, if someone's interested.

    amazing cost/quality here.
    They're really nice basses and still affordable.

    Peace, JP
