    Well time for my quarterly I bought a 6 string bass and realized I am better on a 4 string...I do this about 4 times a year so here we go again.

    This is a beautiful Marco NT 6 string basses, I can't say enough about how great a builder he is, and just a generally great guy (he will talk basses for hours with his customers!)

    This bass is fairly rare in that his doesn't do many 6's and this is also a neck through, it was his personal bass that I bought from him since I loved the looks so much. Plays and sounds as good as it looks.

    Here are the specs from Marco

    Body: Embuia (it’s a Brazilian wood) with Brazilian Cedar at the center core.

    Fingerboard: “Black Heart” which is a very rare Brazilian wood from the Amazon Forest that I don’t even know if they still allow them to cut it anymore (this piece came from a long time ago). Bass is 34 inch scale and very playable.

    The inlayed woods are: Maple (light one) and Brazilian Rosewood (dark).

    The pickups are his own handbuilt picks and sound AMAZING, full and high output with great clarity. The bass is all passive, P/U select swith and volume and tone. It sounds like a supped up jazz on the bridge P/U and a big, warm P tone on the neck. Great pickups.

    Condition is very good, 9 out of 10 nothing really to mention wear wise.

    Looking to get $1750 shipped, I paid a good deal more than that and a comparable bass for him to build would be over $4K.

    Will consider trades + cash for stuff I could flip easy. This is too nice of a bass to sit around, I will be getting a 4 string from him in the future for sure.

    Wow ... ... just wow. :)

    What a stunning piece of craftsmanship ... at a great price ta boot! I can't see it hanging around for too long. Unfortunately for myself, I've sworn off 6'ers ... now if it were a 5'ver ... I'd be in trouble. :smug:

    Gotta BUMP it :)

    Have had some people ask about trades, not particular just prefer something Fender, Spector, etc that is well known and an easy flip since I won't be keeping it. Can maybe do without much cash if the trade has a fair resale value. Thx
