Same story, different bass. Gotta thin the herd out for some new gear. This bass is very dear to me, I hope someone out there can enjoy it as much as I have.
For those of you who don't know about Marco, he is a small builder who is building some amazing basses out of Oregon. Many people consider these basses on the same scale as Fodera/Pedulla/Alembic etc.
Here are Marco's specs on the bass. . .
BODY: Black Walnut (body), Alder (core) & Red Maple (back)
FINGERBOARD: Purple Heart
NECK: Curly Maple
HEAD: Maple & Black Walnut
PICKUPS: 2 Humbuckers MARCO BASS
It's important to note that I've added a Bartolini active preamp with a Volume/Pickup Blend/Treble/Bass. Marco's handwound pickups sound excellent in the original passive setup, but I needed some more control for the playing I was doing at the time. You can either keep it in, or easily take it out and have an extra preamp around.
$2400 + shipping with a hardshell case.
