    Hey everyone. So, recently I came across a Mayones Jabba Classic 5-string bass near me. I had never really heard of Mayones before but after seeing the pictures, my interest has been rising. Unfortunately I know little about the company or the bass. I'd be greatly appreciative if someone gave me some info on it, and if its a worthy buy.

    I know nothing regarding pricing/value of Mayones basses, all I know is they are great sounding, well made instruments. If you like it buy it. :)

    I'd prefer the Bobba Fett classic over the Jabba classic myself.

    New or used? I've played the 4 string version which was easily one of the best J's I've played, well worth price imo if it's brand new.

    Played some of these at NAMM and they are great basses. As good a modern jazz bass as anything out there. You just have to check the weight, as these can run a bit on the heavy side, if that is even an issue for you.
