IN THE NEWS - BROOKLYN ELITE!
As the name implies the Brooklyn Elite model pays homage to the pioneers of the Single-Cutaway design! Each Brooklyn Elite model can be considered a limited edition as no two will be built to the exact same custom specifications… For over a decade I’ve strived to offer the absolute best in M Basses; I’ve fine-tuned my process with hundreds of small touches and techniques that collectively add up to make my instruments what they are today.Features found standard on the Brooklyn Elite models include a wide selection of Old growth body woods, rare & figured top woods, and fingerboards, 24 frets, 34” scale, one piece flat-sawn bolt-on rock maple neck, Hipshot hardware, Nordstrand single-coil pickups, and an Aguilar or Nordstrand 3 Band pre-amp configured to our Brooklyn Elite control layout.

FEATURED ARTIST - ACE LIVINGSTON
The provocative title of Asa “Ace” Livingston’s new full length recording My Metamorphosis is inspired by the multitude of transitions the veteran electric bassist has been going through these past few years both in his personal and professional lives. The colorful mix of buoyant funk, spirited jazz and melodic sensuality he creates on his instrument draws as much inspiration from renowned bassists as Marcus Miller, John Patitucci, Melvin Davis and the late Jaco Pastorius and Wayman Tisdale as it does from lesser known but no less grooving and potent gospel music bassists Joel Smith, Mark Moore and George Moore. Livingston’s recent side projects include playing on “Love Wins”, the song Harry Connick Jr. wrote in honor of Newtown school shooting victim Ana Grace Marquez-Greene that also features the girl’s father, jazz saxophonist Jimmy Green.

ABOUT M BASSES - WHO WE ARE…
My name is Jon Maghini and for more than a decade I’ve been building my own line of high end custom bass guitars. Building electric bass guitars is my passion; each instrument I build features the finest quality hand selected tone-woods, components, and finishes available and is built entirely by hand using only traditional old school building techniques. I do not employ the use of any type of CNC machinery, nor do I outsource my necks and bodies. This method allows me to create each individual instrument to suite my customers exacting specifications. Keeping the quality high and the quantity to a minimum I strive to offer only the very best bass guitars available. Every detail is executed with the highest level of attention and care possible to assure that you get the highest quality instrument available at any price. As always I invite you to visit the site regularly, and if you’re in the neighborhood stop by for a visit!
