From the owner: "... Lets just say that I have never seen a sound guy smile so hard from what he was hearing come out from his p.a! Such amazing clarity indeed! And what a thing of beauty to play! i am super impressed indeed! I have spent endless hours just staring at the finish looking at all the beautiful "imperfections" in the timber and admiring their beauty and how you have managed to make them perfect yet retain their imperfection! that resin filling and keeping of all those knots etc is just marvellous! What a story that timber will continue to tell for many years to come! Thank you for creating such an amazing and unique instrument!..."

From the owner: "The Über-M Aphrodite is a fretless dream! Maurizio is obviously a talented luthier but beyond that, he is also an experienced bass player: (...) He helped me pick a top-notch OBP and pickup as well as a stunning combination of woods and hardware, all contributing to a tone to kill for and looks to die for. Seeing this bass come to life made me fall in love with it before I even laid my hands on it, (...).The ergonomics are simply flawless. A neck joint so solid and comfortable it makes you wonder if its a bolt-on or a neck-through. The instrument balances perfectly on my shoulders and is much lighter than all my medium-weighing basses. Tuning: I get an awesome feeling when I see the tuner needle staying in place (without wobbling) for ages. (...). Aphrodite is also very diverse, tone-wise. With a change in plucking position and a few minor tweaks here and there it can go from a deep, rich voice to a singing soloing sound. I've been a huge fan of Maurizio's work since he first started posting it on TalkBass.com. He has yet to disappoint me ever since. He promptly replied to every e-mail, discussing my every concern and idea. Even after I received the bass, he was still eager to answer questions, explain things and give solutions. Aphrodite is a magnificent, one-of-a-kind instrument. An immensely creative design brought to life by able hands. There is no mechanical perfection here, just excellence organic, human craftsmanship".
