Special Edition Über-Jay 5 Mille. This fiver is the prize of the Mille Lucky draw. 34" scale, 24 frets. Lychee top over blackwood mid laminate over African mahogany body. Padauk/maple/ebony/curly maple neck. Gabon ebony fretboard. Nordstrand Big Splits. Aguilar OBP3 with mid freq switch.
 
Custom fitting: Paua Abalone logo and custom block inlays. They are smaller than usual and with rounded corners. Ebony cavity cover. And this is the first Über-Jay with 24 frets and body design modified for easy access to all of them.
 
From the owner:  "... I can happily say that this bass is everything I had hoped for, and more. It is beautifully-made, with incredible attention to detail and lots of clever custom features that set it apart from your run-of-the-mill production bass. It’s a perfect combination of form vs function, and the sound is unbelievable. Visually, the bass is stunning. The grain of the lychee top is far richer than it appear in photos and the reddish-brown hue contrasts very nicely with the paua fretboard blocks and headstock logo inlay....
The bass (...) feels light-as-a-feather on the strap and extremely well-balanced. The satin-finish neck is silky smooth and an absolute joy to play.
 In terms of sound and playability, I love the bass’ responsiveness and versatility. It can go in an instant from warm and rich and smooth to a beefy, aggressive growl, and the notes sustain forever. The combination of the Aguilar OBP-3 and the Nordy Big Splits is glorious.
 It’s come with me on a couple of gigs so far  (...)  It fit perfectly into every song, and the rest of the band loved the way it sounded in the mix. The balance and light weight were noticeable too — I usually end up with a few aches and pains in my back after a full night, but not this time.  I love Maurizio’s artistic sensibility and the sense of logic and constant refinement that he employs on his builds. His passion for what he does is evident, and the results speak for themselves.

From the owner: " A few years ago I stumbled across Maurizio’s work online and was blown away by his designs and his eye for wood combinations. Forward to 2014 and I was ready to place an order. I was always interested in getting a fretless bass, but could never really find one that I found inspiring and the ones I would find interesting would have to be custom made and were way out of my price range. I contacted Maurizio; his price was more than fair. I placed an order and we started a conversation about basses that lasted 190 emails in which we discussed everything from wood combination, design, materials, hardware, finishes, custom features, etc. What a treat! I received Oblivion last week. The instrument is a 6-string fretless bass and I could not be happier with the result. I could go on and on about the exceptional quality in sound, craftsmanship and playability, but my words would not do it justice. What I can tell you is that every detail has been thought of and that the execution is flawless. The tone is complex, full of nuances and the instrument is a joy to play. What made this building process so exciting and fulfilling for me is the fact that the instrument was built by someone who is just as passionate as me, if not more, about anything related to bass. My vision for this instrument was to have it look like it was dug up the ground; hence the Oblivion finish that Maurizio and I brainstormed over. Throughout the whole process, we also brainstormed about a few custom ideas (pickup ramp, fretlines, strings spacing, satin finish, fretboard dots, etc.) and Maurizio never failed to bring new ideas to the table to improve upon what had already been decided. I am grateful and feel privileged to have been able to work with someone as passionate as him. I now have an instrument that will inspire me to play for many years to come. If you have your idea of a perfect instrument, I could not think of anyone more suited to the task to bring your dream instrument to life than Maurizio Caduto of Maurizio Über Basses"

Über-Jay Aldebaran 4 strings, 34" scale. 21 frets, 16" radius. Chambered Ash body, Unusually pale Buckeye Burl top. Matching headstock. Maple/Purpleheart/Maple neck. Blue accent lines. Purpleheart fretboard, Delano Slim Humbucker p-ups. Delano 2 bands preamp with p/a selector. Clear gloss finish (body). Satin neck finish. Weight: 6.4lbs.
Custom fitting: See thorugh voids finish • 12th fret Svarowski crystal • Lacquered fingerboard

 

The inspiration for this bass combo came to me on one April night. Aldebaran is one of the main stars in the constellation of the Taurus, which falls in that month. Hence the name. It's the reason for the Swarovsky crystal on the 12th fret, inserted in a black circle, for the purpleheart neck and board. the Buckeye which always makes me think of a nebulosa. Chome hardware wraps up the theme. True to its theme, this bass's tone is especially articulated, with sparkling high, clean mids and deep bass. It'll hit you with a-lot of snap and amazing responsiveness. Slap tone is incredible. And surprisingly for a bass this aggressive, it sports a beautiful singing tone and deep growl. Very versatile with a flair for virtuoso playing.
