The Baphomet 5 is equipped with power pickups from the German manufacturer MEC, and with its Pored Satin Black/Gold finish it presents itself as the weapon of choice for metal bassists.
The high-performance MM5-humbucker in the bridge position impresses with powerful sounds which reproduce notes that can be felt in the pit of your stomach. Despite all of this overwhelming might, the attack remains crisp attack and together with the defined rendering allows for fast riffs and complex grooves even on the low B string. Its perfect counterpart takes the form of a MJ single-coil in the neck position, expanding the sound spectrum with warmth and crystal clear transparency.
The active MEC 2-band electronics ensures for a flexible sound, regardless if dominating low-end drive, aggressive growl in the mids or brilliant solo sounds with higher assertiveness, even in extreme settings the equalizer is very musical and delivers suitable sounds.
As with all of the models of the Fame Baphomet series, the Gothic 5 possesses an arched body, unique in its price class. The body is crafted from Ash and is shaped to conform to your body, offering the ideal playing position. The special lacquering process emphasizes the grain of the wood, giving this instrument a premium image. The sycamore maple/mahogany neck is easy to grip with its flat D profile and delivers rapid runs and complex riffs with its oil finish.
The hardware of the Fame Baphomet Gothic 5 is supplied by the popular manufacture WSC Partsland, the solid WB65 bridge supports the exceptional address and sustain characteristics of these basses and guarantees perfect intonation, while the light-weight JB15 tuners are absolutely tuning stabile and prevent top-heaviness.
The Fame Baphomet Gothic 5 MM/J is also equipped with Schaller Security Locks, to make sure that your precious instrument doesn’t crash to the floor during wild performances.
The electric basses of the Fame Baphomet series are absolutely top-of-the-line, professional instruments. They convince with luxury appointments and the use of premium quality materials. These internationally renowned bolides are handcrafted by experienced master builders in the M-Guitars foundry in Danzig, the same workshop responsible for Mayonnes basses. Music Store in Cologne receives these instruments directly from the manufacturer, cutting out the middle-man, allowing us to offer these wonderful instruments at incredibly low prices!
Test Review from ‘Gitarre&Bass’ (Germany) 08/00: (*translated*) “… Hard to believe but true: the Baphomet is a true premium bass without compromises, when it comes to the high quality woods, premium features and playability. Not surprising when it has such a renowned role model. How the supplier is able to do it at this price is a mystery, but the musician doesn’t have to worry about that. This bass is a premium deal!”
