I am completely head over heels in love with my Custom MGBass Desert 5!! This is the bass dreams are made of!! Everything from the look, to the feel, to the tone is second to none!! I can acheive any tone I am looking for simply by making minor adjustments to the preamp, no pedals needed!! Not to mention, the entire process was extremely easy!! Mauricio is an incredible guy and truly an artist!! I give MGBass ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

There are not enough words to explain how happy I am with this purchase! This bass is easily the nicest bass I have ever played in my life, including ones at music stores. Not to mention Maurício has been outstanding with his customer service. He is always courteous and is willing to work with you on custom options, payments, etc. MGBASS is now my go-to company to buy bases from. I feel like I’m part of a family and I could not be happier to say that!

This Bass sound AMAZING ! Everything is very well defined, there are beautiful harmonics and dynamics is terrible !
Construction is beautiful too, it’s a work of goldsmith. Woods are georgous…
Thank you again for this magnificent production Mauricio, and thanks you for you availability too.

I received my bass a few days ago, i bought it off of Reverb from Guitar Ranger. It is a desert model with nat-purpleheart. I have had many custom basses in my life and none have come close to this bass. Not only is it light as a feather and gorgeous but it sounds incredible. My bass tech set it up for me because the person who had it before me had the action pretty high, my tech could not believe how low he was able to get the action and still be clear and articulate. He said it set up better then my custom master built warwicks’ which cost me three times what this amazing instrument cost. I am saving up for a 5 string desert and maybe a desert jazz. Thank you, I will be a customer for life.

I just got the bass words can’t describe how beautiful it is and how wonderful I feel. Thank you so much Mauricio you are true craftsmen and artist. I have played many basses yours surpasses them all in craftsmanship and play ability. I can felt the love that you put in to making my instrument as soon as I touch it! Thank you so very much. I will be a M G Bass customer and Fan from this day forward.

When I first saw pictures of MGBass instruments, it was already my dream instrument. My luthier, Maurício, was very helpful and informative of the status of my Desert Jazzman 5-string bass. He delivered on a spectacular instrument and will be one that I keep forever.

Hello guys from Greece,
A big thank to Mauricio an MG basses for this great instrument that they’ve made. Excellent tone, very comfortable and light, a fret board made in the dimensions I’m used to play, active/passive switch, high quality wood. Overall very careful work from a guy like Mauricio that you can very easily cooperate from the other side of the world!!!
Thank you friend, keep delivering your excellent work to the world and already I’m thinking which would be my next MG bass :).
All the best!!!

Having played electric bass Since 1977 Ive been exposed to nearly all genres. One bass just was not enough. I own Zon, Alembic, Bee bass, Ed Romon, Fenders, Warwick, 4-6-8 stringers and 3 fretless, 15 total in all. Customs made to my specs and boutique bassess as well. In the early days just my fender pbass was plenty as its tone is still my go to when I need to make a tone statement. Having seen photos of the MGbass fretless I was drawn to its style and design. Now with one in my hands this is what I discovered.

The craftsmanship is second to none. This is a big deal. Not a flaw well balanced one soild cut of wood smooth great lines no blemishes. The craftsmanship alone is worth the price of admission. The photos don’t do it justice this instrument is really breath talking. The electronics are well layed out solid soldering joints and your choice of pickups. So the look, design and Craftsmenship and 5 stars. The instrument hangs properly well balanced very light. Now for the real test, playability.

I tuned it up in d flat with flatwounds into my tube markbass amp with 2×10. It sounds like a fretless indeed but creates different tones depending where you finger it and press down on the neck. Unique not predictable but true fretless growl. Smooth well setup fast. I decided to beat it up a bit with some slapping and hard fingering. The bass stayed in tune and teases you to play it faster lol. The fretlines are well placed easy to see and clearly defined. Very impressed and honestly worth twice the sale price.

Hold this instrument and you know a master luthier put some time and love into building and creating this bass. I am so impressed I have to get an identical one with frets to have double trouble. Hats off to maestro-luthier Maur’icio Costa thank you.

For many years I’ve been looking for a bass guitar that can help me sound and feel like the way i wanted. i have tried many bass brands but nothing like MGbasses. The moment i saw one their instruments i knew it was a must buy. the wood options allowed me not only to sound the way i wanted but to also look the way i wanted too. their craftsmanship is very exotic, and the wood choices and designs makes it effortless to pick the right one for you. the sound quality is unique, they will work with you and suggest the best pickups for the type of wood you choose. you will feel it as if the instrument is opening the path to your very soul. MGBass it was what i needed, what i wanted, what i’m always going to be.

I recently received my 5 string Desert Jazzman bass. The quality and workmanship is superb! Mauricio is to be commended. You can tell making these instruments is a labor of love for him. The action is low and it plays great!! I finally have that “sound/tone” I’ve always heard and wanted but was never able to get with my previous basses. I must admit I was very reluctant to buy a bass I had never played before. After watching many of the various videos posted online with some really good players playing their MG Bass, I finally decided to take the leap of faith and place my order. It just became clear to me that these folks were very happy with their instrument and that gave me the confidence to pull the trigger. I am so very happy I did! What an amazing instrument! Many thanks Mauricio!

I received my MG a little over two weeks ago, and absolutely love it. The craftsmanship and the blending of woods is 10/10. I chose bartolini pickups and preamp, and this bass has some of the sickest and fullest tone I’ve ever heard. Its a little heavy, but I expected that with a mahogany body, and it certainly doesn’t nose dive when I let go of the neck. It plays absolutely incredibly. Slap, tap, shred, walking, jazz. Doesn’t matter. It will handle it all. The fretboard! About a 1/4” thick! Not paper thin like Ibanez or Schecters. So much tone. Before I had placed my order, I had spoken to mauricio about what I had wanted, and I actually selected some wrong woods in my order form. But he made the bass just the way we talked about. Seriously, get one. I couldn’t recommend a better brand. I’ll take my MG over a modulus or a warwick any day of the week.

Mg bass was a good opportunity to me to costumize my dream bass, because of the variety of choices you got to choose that enables you to find your own sound and shape of bass, you choose the color, the number of strings, the kind of pick ups you comfort with, and all done by hand in a proffessional and awesome finish, the fretboard is smooth the sound is powerfull, its a great experience

MG Bass takes everything associated

MG Bass takes everything associated with the Bass guitar to the next level. Craftsmanship is not spared by Luthier Mauricio Costa. He can create whatever your mind can think of and then some.

The attention to detail along with the use of some of the best material and electronics available allows him to produce some of the finest basses on the market. The final product is a well crafted, beautiful to look at, easy to play instrument that will produce hours upon hours of enjoyment with whatever genre of music you like.

In my opinion Mauricio’s instruments are at the top with the high level U.S. bass makers and can be had for a fraction of the cost. These basses will make you think “Welcome the bottom it is nice down here” The easy to play wicked looking fret board will also assist you with refining your chops!
“Though life seems to fly by it only comes one day at a time so treat yourself to a MG Bass and keep rockin, slappin, poppin funkin, and pluckin Bass brutha’s! “

“My New MG Dessert Custom 5 string bass just arrived, and it is a spectacular instrument, The hand crafting by Mauricio Costa is flawless, and our combined design concepts came together delightfully. The instrument fell under my fingers and into my hands perfectly. I was instantly at home with Nordstrand – Big Blade pickups and two band preamp. This is a collaboration instrument I’m very proud to have helped facilitate, and I look forward to helping grow the MG Brand. A Desert Custom 5 exactly like mine can be had for only $2500.00, which is astonishing considering the level of quality here. Others charge twice that for something very similar in terms of boutique 100{29e3a0befc6fc68f2a09cd51ffc8e0defd5d1a6a51bc7f0e6e56b312f43d4ebd} hand crafting and premium wood”

Just to let you know, I’ve had your bass for several months now.  I own nearly a dozen, to include an Alembic Spyder (John Entwistle memorial bass, # 7 of 50 built).  I usually have rotated through the basses regularly, but ever since getting yours, the others have remained fairly idle!

I like the Deserts weight, it’s unusual body and fretboard and its EMG pickups and controls.  The neck is quite fast and feels good.

If there were any quibbles, it would have been cool to have another “third color” in the fretboard, but that’s all.

I LOVE it!

Muito bom mesmo o som

Muito bom mesmo o som desse baixo. Foi pra mim amor a primeira vista. Meu sonho é poder ter um baixo da MG. Estou lutando com todas as forças para adquirir um desert. Tinha um cort e vendi para juntar o dinheiro para comprar, porém, o valor ainda é muito alto, mas fé em Deus eu vou ter um instrumento tão lindo e tao perfeito. Parabéns a MG pela dedicação. Vocês realmente me impressionou com esse baixo. Que Deus abençoe a todos e com fé em Deus eu terei o meu MG desert.

Eu sou suspeito a dizer sobre a qualidade dos baixos MGBASS, mas, de todas as marcas que experimentei, foi a única que consegui me sentir confortável, com aquela pegada firme. Além da qualidade impecável, os baixos são lindos. Particularmente dizendo, o meu MGBASS 6 cordas é meu xodó! Recomendo a qualquer profissional que queira um baixo pra vida toda. Tanto em estúdio como ´on stage´, os baixos MGBASS se mostram dígnos por cada centavo pago.
