SOLD Price Drop - Marco MV5 Modern Jazz Bass

Discussion in 'For Sale: Bass Guitars' started by loopspin, Apr 18, 2018.

  1. Price:
    Selling my Marco MV5. This is a fantastic, extremely well built bass and is Marco's take on a single/double cut bass. The bass is in pretty much mint condition, no bumps, bruises or dents to speak of. Plays amazingly well and sounds fantastic with that classic jazz bass tone largely in part because of the Marco wired single coil pickups and preamp. The neck is dead straight and the action is the lowest I have ever felt on any bass.
    The preamp is very versatile, it has active/passive option with passive tone control on the treble knob when in passive, it also has has a gain control as well.

    Neck is three piece maple, fingerboard is dragon wood (sounds great and extremely rare wood), body wings are Douglas Fur and the body core is Spalted maple, the bass is nice and light 7.5 pounds and has a 34.5 scale length.

    Price Drop to $1,200, the bass will come with a Dingwall gig bag, below is a link to Marco's web site.

    I’ve had a lot of basses. Fender, Smith, etc... my lightest and usual giving favorite for the last 10 years is a Pavel jazz. Swamp ash...
    But your bass looks sweet. I like “Light” and craaazy low action.
    You got me thinkin.....
  12. Brother if you like light and super low action, this is it. The look is truly unique, I call this bass "The Forest", because of the look of the bass, incredible. Too many basses and I need the coin. Pave basses are supposedly great basses.

  16. No - should not be much to ship, I would ship Canada Post, my buddy RussT uses them all the time to ship to the US.
  17. I'm sure we can work something out
  18. Yea I just check their website - it kinda sucks. Its still under construction.

    This bass is light as a feather. Way under 9 lbs. It is gorgeous in person as well. The dragon wood fretboard has amazing figuring. Its also a steal at this price.
