    For trade or sale is my beautiful Marco TFL Jazz bass 5.
    The bass is in great condition and a true eye catcher.
    There are a couple of scratches and one crack on the clear pickguard only (pic 2 under the neck pickup and A string). Never bothered me and I don't think it's a biggie.
    Also, there is a small imprint bellow the blend knob that is really hard to capture (pic 3). Again, nothing through the wood and nothing major but just want to be honest.
    The preamp in photos is Audere classic but was changed to Sadowsky pre with VTC a few months ago. Visually the only difference is that third knob is not stacked. If you prefer Audere just let me know and I can make a swap prior to shipping. This bass has an amazing passive tone and that is the only reason why I switched to Sadowsky pre since it has a bypass with VTC.

    Features:
    - Marco custom wound hum-cancelling pickups with custom covers
    - Sadowsky Preamp with VTC
    - Hipshot hardware
    - 34.5" scale, 18.3mm spacing (adjustable at the bridge)
    - Marco's best woods

    Mostly interested in trades but would sell for $1350 shipped to Canada and US.

    Trades:
    Fender Victor Bailey jazz bass
    Fender QMT / FMT
    Mike Lull MV
    Lakland DJ5 (Black only)
    Lakland Skyline JO5
    maybe Stingray HH5 or HS5 (3TSB or Black)
    or similar basses.

    Would you be interested in a Marcus Miller 4 string + cash as a trade?

    Some nice trade offers, please keep them coming. This is a great bass for a bargain price. It would cost you more than a double for a new one.

    Thank you my friend,

    The answer is........
    I have another Marco Custom Jazz fiver and that one is not going anywhere. Otherwise this baby would be a keeper for sure.

    honestly- yours looks like the nicest of his basses.

    im looking for a second luthier; all of my basses were made by one man and while his work is second to none, i need more basses ;)

    looked into his stuff, and yours looks like the gem. good luck with the sale- if only it had one more string..
