Marleaux Betta fretless

Recommended Posts

I’m selling my marleaux Betra lined fretless.

it’s one of the first marleaux Betra produced around 1990, according to Marleaux himself.

mahogany body with maple top and ebony fretboard.

It has PJ Bartolini pickups and passive electronics.

I sell it just because I don’t play fretless no more.

It comes with OHSC

The inevitable "Where are you based?" question.

I think this question has appeared in both "Daily Annoyances" and "I don't understand.."

Nice bass BTW.

      Got this fretless Squire P Bass to experiment with and see how I'd get on with fretless, It's a good instrument for this purpose. Time to let someone else have a try, priced + shipping and fees, no case but original box supplied, collection or meet up also possible.
      Purchased on here from the below thread still in the excellent condition I received it as its not left the house! Better pics in the original thread.

      This Jaco Custom Shop bass was bought new in 2008 when visiting New York. It never got used after all so I am selling it. It might be a bit awkward to say about a relic bass but it is like new really. The bass hasn't been out of the case (OHSC) since 2008 and it still smells like a new one. You know that smell: better than any after shave or perfume! 😉 The bass played perfect right away after so many years in the case. I exchanged the original roundwound strings with Thomastik flatwounds (I did keep the original strings that are still like new too) and did some personal tweaking with string and pick up height. Due to the lower tension of the Thomastiks I also adjusted the trussrod a bit so I can say it works perfectly fine. Somehow this CS Jaco feels and plays like a bass that I have been playing for many years. However, I'm not a Jaco or even a fretless player really... so.... I really enjoyed having this bass in my hands a short bit...I made these pics and put it back in the case for it to comfortably wait for the right person to give it the right overdose of playing & caring. Is it you?

      For sale is my Vox standard 24, that's been defretted. Set up very recently with Ernie Ball Cobalt flats (sounds like rounds, feels like flats). Condition is good considering it is 39 years old but do be aware that there are dings and dents here and there. 
      Only selling as I need funds to cover an unexpected bill and repairs for a broken headstock 
      Based in Leeds, collection preffered
