M Basses M2 Elite 5-string

Internet websites and discussion groups where builders and players come together to swap stories, argue minutiae, and support each other have also boosted the profile of small boutique builders. M Basses’ Jon Maghini is one builder who’s been creating a buzz in the online bass community. He handbuilds each instrument to order in his Terryville, Connecticut, workshop and his basses exhibit the hallmarks of a custom bass: gorgeous exotic woods, top-notch electronics, and an elegant, sexy shape. Our test M2 is a snapshot of Jon’s recent efforts to create a visually and sonically well-balanced instrument.
