Up for grab is my Marco TBL Jazz 5, which I had gotten from a trade with a local TBer (Dex) in the summer. This bass is by far one of the best jazzes I've laid hands on. Marco's work is easily right up there with Sadowsky, Mike Lull, and Alleva-Coppolo. A brand new one with the same spec would likely cost you $3500+ today. I really dig the vibe of the bass, unfortunately, I just went back to school full time in the fall, and is in need of some extra cash, so guys please no trade on this one, sorry.
This bass was last sold on talkbass in 2010, and it has been in Dex's possession for the last 4 years, and he's definitely taken great care of it. It does have some minor wears here and there, However, I would say the overall condition is easily an 8.5+/10. A couple of upgrade were done by Dex when he had the bass, the preamp was replaced by Aguilar OBP-2 and the pickups were refitted with a set of Marco single-coils, I still have the original pickups, and will include them with the sale. SOLD
