Malien is the home of luthier Mark Alien.
Based in London, England, my time is spent in pursuit of the perfect bass guitar.
Over the years I've often found factory-built instruments poor in fit and finish and, on closer inspection, regularly using cheap parts and corner-cutting build methods. Even 'custom shop' guitars from the big brands had the feeling more robots worked on them than humans.
Those factories are pushing out hundreds of guitars a day and frankly, it shows.
My bass guitars are made by hand to my customer's specification. Going custom means you can choose the woods, the hardware, the make and configuration of electronics.. the list goes on. It will be built for you.
My work is only done when your Malien bass is your go-to instrument.
