Up for sale or trade is my Marco Bass Guitars '54 P Bass. It was custom built by Marco Cortes who is a Brazilian luthier that builds high end basses (see link below). His basses and builds are held in very high regard on this site. Do a search and read up. It has a gorgeous sunburst '54 body with arm contour, a split P Bass route, and really cool textured pickguard. The neck is a beautifully flamed piece of Maple topped with a gorgeous, swirly piece of Zebrawood. It's a medium thickness and has a 10" radius. It's attached to the body with countersunk screws - a nice touch. It also has a heel truss rod adjuster a la MusicMan - an even nicer (and very convenient) touch. Pickups are Dimarzio Model P's which thunder like a P Bass should. The original pickups will be included in the sale/trade. It's strung with a nicely broken in set of D'Addario Chromes and plays great. Comes with a great heavy duty Wokfpak soft/hard case with back straps and storage areas.
This bass was sold on TB a while back for $1,200 shipped in clean condition (see link below). Since then its acquired some wear from being played. The worst area is around the bridge area strap button which is from standing the bass up between sets.
Asking $995 shipped CONUS

You have a Marco Bass very cool.
I'm good friends with Marco. He built me a killer ABG, back in 2010.
Been to his shop a few times, in OR. When i was out there.
His pickups are insane. And a great guy to deal with.
Hope to have him do me another bass soon.
