    ** SOLD ** Marleaux Consat Custom 5

    Pre-haggled/reduced price to make things easy as possible. Well under 1/2 the new price!

    [DEL]$2,000[/DEL] $1,975 FIRM (check, Money Order, wire transfer or cash) plus shipping in the conUS

    Sorry but no trade offers unless it's an NYC Sadowsky 4 string with a rosewood or ebony board please.

    Ebony top, fingerboard and headstock

    The bass is amazing to play and sounds fantastic. And YES, unlike other 34" scale 5 string basses, the B string is STRONG and clear. The bass is in excellent condition 9++. There is very little signs of it being played.

    Bass features the following:

    • Madagascar Ebony top and headstock
    • 24 frets
    • Alder body
    • Macassar Ebony top and headstock veneer
    • 34" scale 5 piece Maple and Wenge neck
    • Satin chrome hardware
    • Delano humbucking pickups
    • 3 band EQ with active / passive switch
    • Ebony Fingerboard

    Free bump for a gorgeous bass.

    IMO, Marleaux Consat basses have the sexiest body shape of any bass on this planet.

    I think I found the right Sadowsky, but if anyone has another Sadowsky to put up, I'm happy to check it out.

    Also, a big fan of 66 Jazz, AC 4 strings.

    man. . . . . LOTS of tire kickers but no takers. Very odd with the number of emails I get on this it's still here.

    SO . . . . . in order to hopefully get the fence sitters moving. . .

    price reduced into a now ridiculous sub $2k territory.

    NOW $1,975

    For a bass that goes for almost $5,000, it's as reduced as it can be.

    Marleaux makes some of the finest basses out there.
    This price for this bass is nutz , I kid you not.

    So, why don't I buy it ?
    I already have one.
    I am a dealer.
    I originally sold this Consat, so I KNOW how good it is.

    My 2 cents.
