  2. As you rightly say, a very special pair indeed!

    I like the black hardware - gives them a slightly more understated look of class, IMHO.

    :D Just wanted an excuse to post this picture - sorry!

    Are there really no other Marleaux owners out there, with pictures to post and stories to tell :atoz: !?

    This is one example of why builders should limit the beauty of basses. :eek:
  7. Yes, I was wondering about you and your new bass, Ian ;). I thought that perhaps it had already arrived and you were too busy playing it :bassist: to come here and show it off to us :D.

    Perhaps Santa will bring it :smug:!?
  8. Yes indeed, I agree! That one's a beauty alright (IMHO) :).

    I prefer darker body woods in general, so that ticks another box for me (whatever kind of top that is :confused:).

  9. I hope it's gonna come earlier than Christmas!!!

    With its white snow finish it's a winter bass :)
  10. It sounds great, I'm really looking forward to seeing it :hyper: (nearly as much as you, perhaps :D).
  11. Just had some news from Marleaux. The bass should be ready within a week.
  12. :hyper:
  13. Santa's coming soon baby !

    Wanting to buy a Marleaux 4 or 5 string! Please pm me with details if you are willing to sell. thanks
  15. Santa's been a bit early this year...


    I received the bass today. It's amazing ! Its light as a feather (lightest 5 string bass I've eved encountered), it sounds great, it plays like butter (what a neck!!!), I already love it !!!

    Gerald Marleaux's work is amazing.
  16. Hi Ian,

    Sorry for the delay, but I haven't been around much on TB lately (since getting my Marleaux I just play and don't come here to lust after gear any more :D).

    Anyway, WOW :eek:!!! Your choice of black and white for your Custom 5 is so much to my liking that I can hardly begin to tell you :p. My dream Marleaux would be the same as yours, with one less string ;).

    How are you liking it, now that you've had a few weeks to get used to it? Care to share your impressions with us :) ... ?


    (P.S. I forgot to say, "CONGRATULATIONS").
  17. Hey !

    It's just fantastic ! It plays SO WELL, it's light, my shoulder doesn't hurt after rehearsals, and the neck is soooooo fast ! It's beautiful, and sounds good too !

    It's a real pleasure to play. I love it !
  18. That's really good to hear Ian, although not too surprising ;).

    Enjoy it :bassist:!

    That's just ridiculous. Truly stunningly beautiful bass

  20. First gig with my Marleaux yesterday... It was a pleasure to play it... Great sound, and the weight was a pleasure for my shoulder too...
