The instruments of the Baphoment Series can easily compete in the professional leagues and impress with luxurious features and the use of high quality materials. Ultimately, these premium bolides aren’t mass produced on an assembly line in the Far East but are completely, individually made by hand from experienced Bass-makers in the premium guitar and bass foundry of M-Guitars in Danzig, in fact, they don’t see a single machine. Each instrument goes through precise and extensive quality controls and testing, to ensure that every instrument that leaves the shop is of the highest standard possible. The current version of the Baphomet has been equipped with lighter WSC-Mechanics and a new bridge, which was praised by the industry press as having a construction style that is “absolutely genius”. The carefully designed Baphomet is verified by its tight, strong sound. Finally, with their comfortable form and at such a low price, if you don’t fall in love at first sight … you have no heart.

Test Review from ‘Gitarre&Bass’ (Germany) 08/00:
“… 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!”

This is Mayones budget brand guitar but still hand made in same factory in Gdansk (not Danzig since 1945!!!). I guess they are using spare production capacity. This model was sold under Mayones brand 14 years ago when I started playing but then it was much outside my budget. I love it. Quality/price ratio is amazing. Mind it is quite heavy at 5kg but that gives really great clear sound. My luthier was really happy with the set up it came from factory, actually at begining thinking that is one of the Warwicks in above 2500euro. Go for it.
