Mayones Jabba Custom 5 5-String Bass, Ebony Fretboard, Curly Redwood Top, Trans Natural Satine
We're very proud to continue to be a top Mayones dealer. If you haven't checked out what our friends in Poland are bringing to the table yet, you're in for a real treat!
This gorgeous custom-ordered Jabba Custom 5 bass we just got in is one for the books, most notably featuring some absolutely stunning flamed Curly Redwood for both the top and headstock. Redwood trees are California's state tree, so between that representation and it being downright incredible to look at, this Jabba is a real winner in our book! It also features a T.E.W. (torrefied or "roasted") maple neck, an ebony fretboard, and Aguilar pickups and electronics - an all-star combination of specs.
The Aguilar DCB G4 humbuckers are beefy and powerful for a bass tone that cuts through the mix a bit more. They pump out loads of mid-range goodness while keeping the bass response tight and focused and still providing plenty of treble. Whether you're playing heavy rock with a pick or 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. The OBP-3 preamp gives this Jabba the ability to get aggressive, barky, growly, and punchy, whilst maintaining the ability to be tamed, rounded out, and warmed up a bit if you want to sit back in the mix a little more rather than punching through.
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!
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 is a modern J-Bass player's dream.
