    Marco TFL 24-5 Spalted Maple w/Aguilar and Glockenklang
    I'm thinning the heard so offering up this Sweet US Marco TFL 24-5.
    Prefer a sale but may consider a trade for a Fender P Bass 5 Plus cash, or maybe others that include mostly cash. This model TFL 24-5 starts at $3699 without many features found on this one.


    This one features a beautiful spalted maple top in blackburst finish on a three piece body of ash with a maple tone block. The holes in the body woods were left unfilled resulting in a really cool, weathered, relic-y look that I love. I have seen this technique in some Ritters, but I am not sure if I have seen it from anyone else except Marco. The neck is maple, and it has an ebony board. Sweet Low action & tons of growl.

    Electronics are Aguilar Super Doubles pickups matched to a Glockenklang preamp. Sounds as good as you would expect that combination to sound. The bass has switches to wire up series parallel on the pickups but they’re currently not wired up. Condition of this bass is excellent. It is very fresh. Includes the pictured gig bag.

    $1995 shipped Conus OR $2100 Trade value Please PM any trade offers with trade details

    Heres a link to previous seller that has great pics & details, hope he doesn't mind.

    Great bass. I used to own it! The body wood is actually Douglas Fir. I confirmed it with Marco. Superb sounding bass and plays great too.

    Just a slight correction; these are the Aguilar Super Double pickups, not the DCBs.

    I am going to assume you would know as a previous owner, I stand corrected.
    Thanks for your input & yes she is a looker & plays & sounds great!

    I found this TB discussion on it & it says it compares to Ash.

    Douglas Fir bass body?

    I am no Aguilar pickup expert so again I will say thanks for your input. I made the change in the description.
