Hey Folks, ****SOLD***
I am reluctantly going to put this up on the market.. I need some cash...wedding bells are ringing.
Marco is a builder out of Oregon, who makes all his basses from scratch. Even his pickups are hand wound and sound killer!
Marco basses are probably the best bass you've never heard of and are truly "boutique" for a fraction of what they should really cost. If you talk custom built quality with Sadowsky, Fodera, Lakland, Lull and other top notch builders, Marco has to be in the same conversation...they are THAT good. I can go on and on about how good the bass is, but really, Pablo Migraine has summed it up in this post:

I am the second owner of this bass. It weighs in at 9lbs. 6 oz. on my shipping scale, balances really well. The specs are as follows:
3 piece swamp ash/fir body (with walnut stringers)
Maple neck with walnut binding (uber comfy 1.5" size)
Light Birdseye maple neck with maple fretboard w/ sunburst finish
Hand cut Bone Nut
Red Leaf quilted maple top with sunburst finish
Black Hipshot tuners/ bridge
Marco handwound pickups
The bass is very versatile...the Glock pre is absolutely colorless and allows all the goodness of this bass to shine through. The bass can be powerful if you want it to, but also can get very expressive...the pickups really are unbelievable.
I borrowed some of the pics from the previous owner. They made me drool...hope it does the same for you!
