Mayones Patriot 4 Fretless Bass, Trans Green Finish, Flame Maple Top, Nordstrand Pickups
Music Store Live is proud to be an official Mayones dealer. The Patriot is one of the newer additions to Mayones's bass offerings and boy does it absolutely rock! We put together this custom spec with hopes and dreams of how awesome it could be. Then we received the bass and our expectations were greatly and easily exceeded! This is one truly rockin' fretless bass! We went with short lines so you have some guidance up and down the fretboard, but it also keeps that clean look of a fretless intact.
As the name implies, this Tank is an absolute bulldozer and is a powerful beast. A true force to be reckoned with. It's versatile enough to be used by anybody looking for an aggressive bass tone that is going to punch through the mix clearly and articulately. It's loaded with all the "mwah" goodness you could want out of a fretless, while giving you a huge array of useable tones out of the combination of the two pickups and the preamp. It also has its own distinct voice in passive mode, which allows you to get close to a Jaco-esque sort of tone.
The build quality is beyond superb and the action, right out of the box, was really low while still producing clear and buzz-free notes. From top to bottom this feels like a truly boutique and high-end instrument while being an absolute heavyweight in the tone department. The Nordstrand electronics are some of the best in the business. Carey Nordstrand and his team have been developing superb electronics for quite some time. We paired that with an Aguilar OBP-3 preamp, which has become an industry standard, and with very good reason.
An awesome addition to Mayones' already diverse lineup of basses, this one's sure to appeal to funkers and shredders alike. It's a great modern sounding bass with a "take no prisoners" sort of tone. Whether you're going for a Jaco-like tone, or more for a Pino type of sound, or just wanting to do your own thing, it'll all be at your fingertips with this beauty.
