Just like its four sting brother, the Fame Baphomet 5 presents itself as a pure premium Bass with an exceptional price to performance ratio. Equipped with two active Jazz single-coils from the German manufacture; MEC, it possesses a broad sound spectrum, perfectly suited for any genre and style.
The pickups impress with their transparent transmission, which combine all of the strings into one sound experience with balanced dynamics. The sound character can be adjusted via the 2-band active electronics, also produced by MEC. Regardless if low-end boost, growling mids or brilliant solo sounds, the Baphomet 5 is armed for any battle.
Even the playability of the Baphomet earns it points. The arched Amazaque body fits to the contours of your won body – unique in its price class – and ensures for comfort, while the flat mahogany/maple neck with a D profile is the ideal foundation for fat grooves and swift riffs.
The solid WSC Partsland bridge contributes to the fantastic response of the Fame Baphomet 5 and significantly simplifies the process of replacing ball-end strings. The low weight ESC Partsland JB15 tuners prevent top-heaviness and ensures for unshakeable reliability and high tuning stability.
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 Blonde 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: (*translated*) :
“… Hard to believe but true: the Baphomet is a true premium bass without compromise 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!”
