    Up for sale is my Marco TFL 5 Jazz bass. Marco is an awesome builder and this bass proves that. I just want to take a different route sound wise. The bass is in great condition. I called Marco to get a quote on building this exact bass and he quoted me $2900. This bass has a great jazz tone from the front to the back pickups. Action is low and great. Exactly what you expect from this caliper instrument. I circled all of the bruises in the pictures below. There is a zipper rash on the top of the headstock from using too little gig bags. The pickup guard also has 2 small cracks. I contacted Marco about a new black one and he gave me a price of $25. Here are the specs:



    *34.5" scale

    *18.5 mm string spacing (Can be adjusted)

    *Custom wound Marco pickups

    *Audere 3-band 9-volt preamp

    *Black Hipshot hardware

    * Approximately 9.9lbs (bathroom scale)

    SOUND CLIP



    The price is $1200 including shipping to CONUS. Bass with ship in a gig bag and boxed well.



    The only trade I will consider is a Roscoe 5 string with me adding cash if need be.
