There's so much that I could write about this latest bass to be introduced to my (otherwise quite modest) stable, but I know that there's always a tendency to get carried away and over-praise anything new . It's a Marleaux Betra model, made by hand in the Harz mountains in Germany, not far from where I live. So instead I would simply like to post these pictures and try and let them do the talking . It is though, I have to admit, an utterly amazing sounding bass guitar (able to cover a lot of ground, musically) and weighing in at only 7.5lbs means that I am very unlikely to put it down until my fingers get sore - which is how it should be . Oh, by the way ... it's got no headstock !!! Thanks for looking .
