    Hey Armbruster how are you ..... I have never heard about the Marco bass...... I am sure they are Killing...... but the reason for me getting rid of this one Is because I can't play any other companies basses due to my endorsement......... Thank you for the offer ...... peace.

    Do you have any clips of these basses or videos? I would love to hear the differences the electronics made and also evaluate the differences between them.
     
  7. Are the pre-amps stock or were they upgraded as well? Nice Basses!

    Hey How are you I will try to answer to HONEST ABE AND CTODDROCK....... in this one Hey before I respond I also just remember I had a brand new PEARLOID pickguard with the plastic on it still I never put on....... that goes to.....

    CTO ...... Yes the bass was all modify with nordstrand elctronics his 3 BAND EQ with the passive/ active tone knob...... by carey Nordstrand himself ..... I was standing right there when he did it, He also put the copper paper inside the control cavity......PRESTINE......

    Honest Abe it did Improve the sound a lot........ this is the bass with the cheap bartolini MK 1 on......It sounds even better now....... but then It was on fire as well..It got me all the gigs I am doing..... so it can be that bad........haaaaa..please play them with speakers so you can hear better..... and this is I suppose a camera phone recorder......

    What style of music do you use each bass for? I'm interested in hearing your opinion on the strengths of one against the other. Do they sound similar? I'm growing more interested in these.
