    1050

    For sale is a marleaux consat sopran modified to play in standard tuning. It is currently strung with DR patriotic strings (the BEAD of a 5 string set cut shorter). Delano pickup, sperzel locking tuners.

    $1050 shipped to CONUS


    The tuners are not original, hence the small holes on the back of the headstock, however they were necessary to utilize the larger strings in an easier manner. They are sperzel locking tuners so you can still use the piccolo strings if you so choose. They work really well. I also moved the bridge back about .5" so the bass can intonate correctly.


    Included are the piccolo strings as well as a set of ghs pressurewound that are cut to the correct length. I may have an old set of Dunlop flats for it as well but I'll have to look, those are the strings I originally had put on the bass after the DR you see in the photos, but went back to the DR after a while when I needed a different sound.


    I did a lot of gigs with this bass and it sounds and feels amazing, but I built a 25" scale bass and discovered I prefer that scale even though it's slightly bigger (arthritis has necessitated much smaller instruments for me over the past 2 years).


    The picture with the Yamaha attitude bass is to give you an idea of the size of the marleaux, the Yamaha is a 34" scale p bass shape for reference.


    The strip you see by the bridge is the mute that I build for any bass I have, very easy to put on or take off when needed on a song, I can do it in 1 bar of rest when I've needed to (on medleys that happens on occasion). If you don't want it the velcro will come off without any damage to the bass.


    Feel free to ask any questions, I'll do my best to answer them. This is one of a kind and if you are looking for an amazing, no compromise bass that fits in an overhead compartment really easily this is the one!

    Ha! Thanks. I used this exclusively for over a year, but built a 25"scale bass from strat parts at the beginning of the summer and it just fit perfectly. I'm doing a lot of sound gigs now and since I'm not using this as much I thought I'd see if anyone wants to buy so I could get some needed sound equipment. However, if it remains in my possession I won't be sad...
