Music Store Live is proud to be an official Mayones dealer. If you haven't checked these guys out yet, you're in for a real treat!
Aptly named after one of the best slap artists around, this bass will leave you in awe! Wojtek Pilichowski is world renowned for his slap technique, but just because you're a master at your craft, doesn't mean that you don't need tools to help you execute more easily. But let's say you want to do more than just slap away like a funk machine, then this original Pi design will give you that extra little bit of darkness (compared to the new "slap machine" Pi 3) to help you stay punchy and defined when playing fingerstyle. This bass just absolutely smokes! Slapping on it is truly effortless. The strings bounce off the fretboard and provide tight and punchy lows with crisp and sizzling highs. But make no mistake about it, this is FAR from a one-trick-pony. The bass sounds great with fingerstyle playing too. You can get a barky and throaty bridge pickup tone or dial in the neck pickup a to round it out for a sound that is massive but never muddy. The Bartolini soap bars sound awesome and have just a touch of natural compression and darkness to them, which is great when slapping, and also really shines when playing fingerstyle. The Aguilar pre-amp is open and edgy so you never have to worry aboburieding burried at the bottom of a mix and it counteracts the Bart pickups nicely. So although this bass absolutely is the Ferrari of slap basses, make no mistake about it, this is a versatile axe that could very well be the last bass you ever need to show up to a gig with. It won't hurt that you'll also have an instrument that looks thoroughly bitchin'!
Mayones presents the signature bass lines built under guidance of and inspired by Wojtek Pilichowski, one of the most popular Polish bass players, world-renowned for his superb slapping techniques, the author of 7 solo albums (over 70 000 copies), 4 guides and lessons for bass guitar and a contributor on more than 120 CDs of other artists.

In most cases we ship new orders out within 1 business day of receiving payment. Here are some things to note:
- An indirect signature will be required upon delivery for all transactions over $250. If you would like to require a signature on a transaction of less than $250, please request it when you place your order.
- Your order must ship to the billing address associated with your credit card, PayPal, or other method of payment. If you need to use a shipping address that differs from your billing address, feel free to contact a Music Store Live Gear Expert and we can help you out.
- If you want the shipment to be held at a shipping company hub it is your responsibility to make those arrangements directly with the shipping company. If you’d like it held at a local FedEx facility, for example, please provide us with the full address of that facility before your order is shipped.
