For sale this very beautiful Merlos Signature Edition, a one of a kind, build from our friend Mustapha Bouchou in 2017.
It is the best Merlos i have played, very smooth playing ("33 scale, yet a very tight B-string), very nice neck, and very versatile: from modern to vintage tones.
José Merlos is a builder from Spain and has build this bass with a chambered (!) alder body (that is why the weight is only 3.8kg), maple neck and a top with Flamed Redwood, with multiple pieces redwood through the body and neck and a neck-through construction for easy access to higher notes.
The bass is in good condition, but there are some dings and dongs, see pictures. Nothing serious, only because of playing;)
String spacing is 19mm, bridge from Merlos, tuners from hipshot.
Preamp is from Merlos himself, as are the pickups, with the following controls: bass, mid, treble, active/passive tone knob (pull for passive), mid frequency switch and single/parallel switch for pickups.
I sell because i need some cash for four string P bass.
Price: €2200. I look at offers or partial trades. Shipping is possible, only EU thanks to Brexit.
Thanks for looking. Feel free to send me a PM with any questions.
Please look and listen to these video's, thanks to Mustapha!
