Marleaux Consat Signature fretted and (lined) fretless 4's with excellent cases and in mint condition.

The Signature is the top-of-the-line option and this pair is also neck-through (rather than bolt-on).
Wood choices are fairly obvious and the basses demo the special features of the Signature model, including the flame-maple bound f/board.
The fretted bass features the unique Marleaux Programmable EQ, and the fretless bass is Active-Passive. Both are 3EQ.
photos show both the quality of workmanship and the contrasts between the two, which are very similar in most respects....
US$7500 (for the matched pair incl. 24-48 Courier by Fedex or similar)). Current EU pricing is €4000+ (c. $5250) per instrument.
