    Hey, Wyzard, the bassist for Mother's Finest, plays those. Great sounding bass. I just can't get into headless basses.

    Yeah, Wyzzard plays one.
    There's a version with headstock available, called Capone.

    Shwing! Cool bass. I don't like headless basses, but that ones cool enough to make it on the short list of basses w/o heads I can stand. Cool beans.

    Man, I really like that bass!! Really a good way. Love the wood! If it only had one more string.

    I want it!

    WOW, Only things that could make that any cooler would be a wenge neck, and one more string.

    Yeah, that's my problem too (also the price is a little high - new it's under 2500).
    The shape also looks much better with 5 or especially 6 strings.

    Interesting.....single cut without really being single cut. I kinda like it.


  10. Beautiful wood! Love the body shape on that.

    Bet you would look good with that! ;)

    I like it. I'd love to play one, but i've never seen a le fay around here. That store also has a cool looking marleaux. I've never seen wenge with that redish/orangish color.

    Dear lord if that thing (Marleaux) was a 6-string I'd be on a plane for Germany right now. . . :)

    OH SWEET JEBUS! That Marleaux is possibly my favorite top ever on a bass...I mean it's got the coolest shape as well, and...duh...ghuaaaaa....wwhuuuua doobbbbbb

    At this time the brain of one "Brendan" has been shut down due to a visual overload. Subject will remain speechless, possibly aroused, for the next few minutes. Please let the neural capacities reboot before attempting conversation
    Thank you for your patience.
  16. wow.


    Simply speechless.
  17. That Le Fay is incredible! I saw some Le Fay's at a music store in Koln about 10 years ago, but I was pretty young then and too intimidated to pick up one of them (they were 5 and 6 string models). I do wish I would have tried it.

    Anyone sell them in the States?

    What a great music store! Fodera, Ken Lawrence, F bass, Warwick, Elrick, Zon, MTD, Lakland .......

    I've got GAS just from the website, I would get into some powerful trouble in there :D

    The nice thing is that Marleauxes are just as nice to play as they are to look at. Excellent basses.
