Mayones Jabba Custom 5 5-String Bass, Purpleheart, 4A Quilted Maple Top, Trans Jeans Purple Gloss
We're very proud to continue to be a top Mayones dealer! If you haven't checked these guys out yet, you're in for a real treat! This gorgeous Jabba Custom 5 bass is pure royalty, featuring an insanely stunning 4A quilt maple top, a beautiful Trans Jeans Purple Gloss finish, and to go all in on the purple theme, a breathtaking Purpleheart fingerboard.
If you're looking for a 5-string bass that's decidedly modern, but has all the vintage sensibilities you'd ideally carry forth in a contemporary bass and has the upgrades and impeccable build quality that Mayones has come to be known for, then this is it. The Jabba Custom 5 is a modern J-Bass player's dream.
The Mayones VELVETRONE Gallant 5 pickups serve up all the classic "J" tone you need with a modern edge. It's that classic 70's J-Bass tone you've heard countless times (think Marcus Miller). Pair that with the Mayones 3-band preamp that boosts (or cuts) the bass and treble EQs at just the right frequencies, and it's a recipe for tonal success. The preamp is very transparent and hi-fi sounding. But if you want to go a little more old-school, that's in there, too - you can bypass the preamp and play the bass in passive mode.
The neck is extremely fast, thin, and flat. It feels awesome and the overall construction of it, especially the fretwork, is extremely precise and allows for this bass to achieve crazy low action. A specially-contoured neck heel for easy upper-fret access, absolutely expert craftsmanship and overall meticulous attention to detail help make this one of the best modern J-style basses on the market!
