Anything similar to the Marcustico in the states?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Guimdonatron, Apr 9, 2014.

  1. Is there a luthier in the States doing anything
    similar to what this cat is doing?

    I've been fascinated with this bass for a long time,
    especially hearing Tarus Mateen use it with Jason Moran.
    For me it's a great in-between of the upright and electric
    bass. Not only in physical build, but sound wise.

    I would love to order it from Marco, but if I can avoid paying
    a huge load of VATs then I will since I'm not swimming in cash.

    Thanks for any help, guys!

  2. I share your fascination with this instrument, since hearing Dario Deidda play it.
