SOLD Mayones BE4 custom order SOLD
£600
Belgium

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Up for grabs goes a very nice custom-ordered Mayones BE4.

It's the BE4 (E for exotic woods) model that features bolt-on (6 bolts) construction, 5 pieces mahogany-maple comfortable neck on amazakoe (aka ovangkol) body in natural wood oil finish. Custom order was for the fretboard - here it's beautiful ebony with only side dot markers.
It was made in 2007 and has the profiled/curved body profile much like in Spector or Warwick basses.
Electronics is a factory-installed Bartolini JJ pups and 3 band Bartolini EQ (NTMB 918F).
Outstanding build quality, great ergonomics and very little signs of use. Shipping within EU+ possible, ask me for cost estimate. 

Now with better pictures uploaded.

I can heartily recommend these basses and this seller.

i bought my fretless NTB from Koval123 and it has pride of place alongside my 6 string bolt on.
Wonderful build quality and sound.

These earlier Mayones are so seriously underrated or overlooked. The quality of woods and craftsmanship are impeccable. Just sold a BE4 fretless on to a fan in France - I'll regret that!!

I really like this...really don't need another 4 string though.

To show what a bargain this is, there's a BE4 fretless on ebay currently - opening price £650...and it isn't as clean or as well presented as this...

I need to be careful...I'm selling it to myself..

If you were in the UK, I would have this in a heartbeat, but with the fact taxes will apply when shipping from the EU and possibly tariffs, it will be a lot more expensive that the asking price. it is a shame what this brexit crap has created.

 Do you have any links you can share? 

My understanding was that goods manufactured in the EU and the UK would not be subject to tariffs. Mayones are made in Poland, so I don't think they would be subject to tariff or tax, just paperwork. Quite happy to be proved wrong - does VAT apply on second-hand goods?

Richard,

I'd be delighted to be proven wrong too. My understanding is that VAT might be an element ? I'd looked into buying from Thomann and they no longer charge VAT for goods over £135, as per the new rules, and that's chargeable here. All as I understand it.

Yes, EU/UK made items are not subject to tariffs but any items over £15 or £39 if marked as a gift, are subject to VAT, regardless of whether they are second hand or not, if coming from abroad, even if it is a private sale, unfortunately.

The thing with Thomann is that they will allow you to pay the VAT/Duties to them, if the item is less than £135. If over £135, you would pay VAT and duties (if needed) to the courier company. All their prices on their website are ex-Vat now.

Thanks for that. Not worth dividing the bass into five parts each of under £135 value and shipping separately 🙃
