The best of the best, and a beast of a bass - that's what this Mayones BE Elite 5 is.  Mayones instruments are hand-crafted in Poland using traditional European luthier techniques and the finest components available.  Play one run on this one and you'll experience the amazingness of Mayones.

The BE Elite EP 5 is a premium bass, featuring an eye-catching AAA Eye Poplar top on a Swamp Ash body.  The neck is amazing - it's a 5-piece Mahogany/Maple build, with a Pau Ferro fretboard.  The 20" radius is a breeze to play.  it's surprisingly easy to play by 5-string standards.  

As for the sound, one would be hard-pressed to find a better 5-string bass than this - it's powerful, with a very tight bottom end, even with the low B, and can also sign for leads played in the upper register.  No matter what style, this bass can handle it.  The Aguilar pickups provide a nice, even tone, with plenty of output, while retaining the ability to dial it back for more vintage sounds.  The full EQ and active/passive switch make this a very versatile bass.

Professional musicians worldwide depend on their Mayones to provide stunning sound and consistent playability night after night. Mayones artists include Between The Buried And Me, Korn, Katatonia, Paradise Lost, Keith Merrow, Periphery, Jimmy Haslip and many more.
