    I have been trying to find the perfect 5 string for many years. Well I finally succeeded with this Mayones Slogan. I worked with Zjon's Guitarstore in the Netherlands and they went above and beyond in every way to deliver me an amazing Machine.

  2. Those Mayones basses are just awesome! Way out of my budget over here in Canada, though.

    Thanks, I am pretty stoked.
    I had some "Sticker shock" on the prices here too. If you can swing it, it's worth every penny.

    I like it.
    Are the two screws that hold the tailpiece down machined and screwed into an insert?

    Great question, I am going to find out. This bass is solid. It’s light and balanced yet has such punch. It’s a bit like my old Pedulla ET5.

    On a side note: The switch is for active/passive and you can stay plugged in and not kill batteries. Just switched to passive. controls_custom.
     
  8. Looks great - what's the wood used for the body?

    made with hand sculptured ash body, through maple/mahogany neck with ebony fingerboard and decked out with the latest Aguilar DCB dual coil pickups and OBP 3 band preamp.
     
  10. That’s real nice! Congrats!

    That is a nice looking bass. I don't know a ton about Mayones (only heard the brand name before), but I'm on their website right this second.
    Congrats on finding a good one.

    Astounding. That's a quality level I have yet to personally touch or play. I'm not sure I dare.
    Congratulations! With great power comes great responsibility, man.

    Thanks. I will do my best to do it justice at my gig on Saturday.
     
  19. Most active basses drain your battery in passive mode if you leave them plugged in. It is good to see a bass which doesn't.
