PLAYER'S PERSPECTIVE

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 Viking 5 five-string bass is finished in a spectacular Trans Jeans Black 2-Tone Blue Burst Matt, giving this bass the look of a mystical weapon - totally reflective of the killer bass tones it's capable of laying down.

Dressed with looks to kill and armed with electronics that'll really thump, this Viking is ready to conquer everything in its path with a take-no-prisoners mentality! In conjunction with the custom preamp, the Mayones Bass Humbucker 5 pickup set is perfectly optimized for this guitar. These pickups have a focused midrange while keeping the bass response powerful with just enough cut and clarity.

Whether you're playing heavy rock with a pick, laying down a groove fingerstyle, or putting your thumb to the bass for some slap action, this bass has enough versatility that it can cover many genres and playing styles with ease. This is great for the bassist who wants others to actually take note of their bass tone. With a bass like this, bass players are able to be a lot more than simply the guys that make the low and rumbly notes. You'll have all the articulation and definition you could ever need.

It's really perfect for any bassist looking for a modern hi-fi tone. There's not much this fierce warrior can't do.
