    Hey everybody. Make sure to check out the Marco Bass Guitars booth and try some of his basses. He will have 4 5 and 6 string basses from Super Jazz basses to Relics to Single cuts. Marco builds his basses out of Dallas Oregon. He builds them by hand and winds his own pickups which have a very unique tone. The build quality is fantastic and the playability and tone are superb as well!

    Marco is sharing his booth with Vivid Amplifiers as well. They have some brand new bass products that they will be demoing at the booth. Should be a good ol time ;)

    Here are some examples of his work!

    I predict that I'll be spending a lot of time at Marco's booth this year.

    Yeah guys be sure to stop by! I'm excited to meet other endorsing artists for Marco.

    Hey Nick
    Is that 26 fret bass yours? That thin is incredible looking. Great design. I'm excited to check it out.

    Also don't forget about Marcos patented Fretgroove System. It's a hybrid fretless and fretted system. Really different from anything else out there.

    Did you try out the Yellow one at Five Star Guitars? I went in and picked it up for a setup about 2 weeks back.

    Oh! No, I just visit. I don't work at any music stores, I'm an IT guy.

    That said, I totally wish I could go to NAMM! I'm into both bass and audio, so seeing all that new gear would be really cool!

    There's some cool bass related stuff at the Fender booth this year too. It's all custom shop/master built, but pretty unique nonetheless. I'm heading to CA in a few hours. Can't wait!

    Oh! Sorry my bad man. I must have mixed you up with someone. Hopefully you can make it down sometime! I'm very excited to say the least.

    I'm leaving tomorrow!

    These 2 are mine and Marco is bringing me a new Relic. I love the high end of the single-cut custom basses but the Relics are my favorite 4 string, a go to passive bass with a punch.
