I always wanted to have a custom bass made for me completely to my own specifications, from wood selections, design to pickups, hardware etc.

My good friend Usama Allati introduced me to MG Bass guitars and the builder behind the curtain Mauricio Costa as Usama himself owns a seven string Desert custom bass.

As sceptic as I could be I had to put a lot of thoughts to it and many convincing. I finally came to my senses and was completely blown away.

Working very closely with Mauricio with every fine details on how exactly to build my instrument was at ease and very helpful with his recommendation.

Thank you Mauricio and all the MG team, I’m honored and proud owner, endorser of my Desert Custom 5 string bass.
