    I visited my buddy Dan's(Luthiers access group) yesterday
    and was reminded why I love Marleaux's. The new batch he
    has in are just outstanding, I didn't get to the Votan's but
    I want all 4 of the Consat's I played. Time to start prepping
    my wife for a purchase. Here is a cool video I came accross
    of a Consat in action, played by Anton Davidyants.

    Thanks for the kind works, Mike.
    All credit goes to Gerald Marleaux , as well as all of the other builders I work with.

    I merely step back and let the players tell me what they like.

    I do not own a Marleaux bass, but in my humble opinion, I think the Marleaux Consat body shape is the most attractive body shape on any bass I have ever seen in my life.

  16. Quoting myself... As I have to sell the bass. It's great but it has to go. If anyone (in EU) is interested, drop me a PM.

    Asking for a friend: how much do you ask for this bass, and where are you located? Thank you!
     
  18. If it was a 4 string, I'd be seriously interested. Perhaps you could PM me with a price anyway, Ian ;) !?
     
  19. You guys both have PM's.
