MARCO BASS GUITARS,for those of you who are unfamiliar is a small company on the rise out of Oregon. Marco is a very talented Luthier who has worked all around the world. Please check out the link to his site to find out more. As for my marco collection (and there are more on the way) I have a custom single cut 5 string and a Relic 4 string from his more affordable line. I am more and more surprised with both of these basses every day. Not only is it very fine wood but marco does all of his own custom pick-ups for each and every bass. The pick-ups indeed are the hidden jewel within! The Relic is an all passive bass while the 5 string single-cut allows you to switch back and forth by pulling the volume knob up. If anyone is interested in owning marco basses or just want to more about the company feel free to message me. I will be glad to inform you and more basses are yet to come including a custom 6 string single-cut and 7 string.
Awesome ! I will be posting pics soon and will continue to do so. Thanks for replies. Marco is a great guy and very talented for sure. I will have videos up as well with a full review of each product. So please subscribe!!
Marco made me a ABG in 2010.
It is a truly amazing instrument.
He is a talented builder with a vision, Who thinks outside the box. And his pickup are some of the best I've played.
All that and a good friend to boot.
I highly recommend his bases.
For all of you out there who believe in quality hand-made instruments, this post is for you. Tucked in the corner of the Pacific northwest is a very talented Luthier, Marco Cortes, owner of Marco Bass Guitars. I have had the pleasure of not only owning his basses but meeting him as well. I fully endorse Marco not only with his talent with Wood but Electronics as well. He not only builds every piece but wires every pick-up getting better and better each time. Soon I will be posting a series of video reviews throughout various sights trying to spread the word Marco Basses. If you are interested in getting information sent directly to you please comment or message me back with your information and you will be put on a list.
