    New bass day: this is a Mayones BE Gothic Custom from 2009. It has a mahogany neck with maple fingerboard, the body is amazakoe (which seems to be the same as ovangkol?). As you can see, it is passive with just one pickup very close to the bridge. Together with the black Rotosound flats, it has a very distinctive, almost jazzy sound. But I guess with other strings and some pedals, it can also live up to it‘s gothic name. Do you know other basses with such a pickup configuration?

    Yep. Ovangkol is also known as Amazique, Amazoué, Hyedua, Black Hyedua, Mozambique and Shedua.
    Nice find!

    Just been looking at half the online shops in Europe again.
    I do not want another bass. My stock (up to around 3k euro) is way better then theirs.

    Geert is a nice lad and a hell of a player.
    The price on that Sonus is too steep though.

    You can pick these USA Peavey's up for the price of a new boutique pedal, very pleased with this one.
    The neck is flat and wide, it's reasonable light and the pickups are very boomy.

    I really like these strings, they are Rotosound PSD. Too bad they stopped making them.

    Nice bass :)
    No wonder why DiMarco likes it, it has the same PU-config as his HyperJazz ^^
