This used to be mine, and it is 100% the best bass I have ever played, with a B that shames Dingwalls.

 

If I didn’t have medical issues that meant I needed a super light bass I would have been buried with it.

 

Good luck with the sale!

How is the string height and adjustability on the bridge? (To see if it is a candidate to became fretles...;) )

Nice bass!... out of interest, what is the exact weight?

My question too! 

Ignore that - I've found Fretmeister's original 2018 FS post and he stated it as being "9lbs +/-"

Glad it went to a good home.

 

One day I'll get Gerald to build me a lighter weight one.

      Selling/trading this unique bass, very special one. The only existing bolt-on mBass ever made by Marleaux. It is a bolt on as that is usually the prefered construction type by many for a more balanced fretless sound.
      New price would be around 4800€, but this bass was a one of, so cannot be ordered new.
      The bass is in absolute pristine condition with no dings or marks. I am only selling it because I need the money and this bass is not getting used ao much.
      Specs:
      - 34" scale, 
      - 5 string lined fretless 24 fret marks
      - three-peace maple neck
      - ebony fingerboard
      - mahogany body
      - figured pear wood top with wenge accent veneer
      - delano quad coil pickups
      - marleaux 3 band eq with active-passive switch
      - includes marleaux rigid gigbag, strap locks, tools and marleaux booklet
      - includes a new set of Marleaux roundwound strings
      - ships with laBella deep talking flatwounds.
      - include two ebony finger ramps (currently not installed on the bass)
      Asking 3300€/2995£ negotiable. Can ship worldwide.
      PRICE DROP: 2750£
       
      I could consider partial trades with money my way with things like: Fender american precision basses and/or 5 string american active jazz basses (can be nom fender) Noble preamps, vanderkley amplificarion stuff, trickfish preamps, some pedals, and yamaha silent basses.

      Can’t believe I’m doing this, but my back is knackered.
       
      For Sale: Marleaux Consat Custom 5 string.
       
      I’ve owned it since 2012 and I’ve played it in jazz and big band ensembles. It has the finest low B or any bass I have ever played, including Dingwalls.
       
      34 scale, 45 mm nut. It’s 9lb +/- and well balanced.
      Delano pickups with a blend and a 3 band EQ that can be switched to passive. As it happens I prefer it passive.
      Ebony board. You will notice that some photos show fret markers and some don’t... they are little removable stickers. Took me ages to line them up! Drove me nuts! 
       
      Specs are here: https://www.marleaux-bass.com/marleaux-bass_consat_custom.html
       
       
      There is is an extra strap lock position on the rear of the bass for use with double shoulder strap systems.
       
       
      If you bought one new today you wouldn’t get much change from £3000
       
      I'm in Northants. I would prefer collection. I make a mean cup of tea for anyone who wants to try it.
       
      £1750 Ono.  
       
      PRICE DROP to £1650.00
       
      PRICE DROP £1550.00
       
      PRICE DROP TO £1250.00 collection only
       
       
      FORGOT TO SAY: It will come with a Mono Vertigo gigbag. (£200 RRP) 
       
      TRADES: I'd consider a trade for a nice lightweight Precision. Nothing active, just something that will sound old and thumpy with some flats on it.

      This beautiful Marleaux Sopran bass in fantastic condition. Created with Marleaux hand-crafted care, tuned an octave up from standard, has a beautiful piano-like quality to each note. Can be used with an octave pedal to achieve standard bass tones (though works best with a high quality unit).
      Incredibly good fun, light and extremely easy to play, it's quite addictive really and so easy to carry around. 
      The original gig bag (Warwick Rockbass with Marleaux branding) is included in the sale, as are the hex keys.
      Carefully sourced wood: http://www.regio-tone-wood.com/
