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!

Great instrument man, selling, because I need 6 string now, otherwise I'll keep it, cheers.

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.

      Hi,
      I'm not looking for any trades at the moment but my arm could be twisted by a nice 4 string classic ray with a rosewood fretboard, or a Spector euro LX. (Cash either way)
      I had this up for sale a few months ago and withdrew it because I knew I would regret it. However, its time to put my big knickers and to let it go once and for all.
      Its a great bass, in great condition (see pics, shout if you would like some more pics).
      Check out the following link for details 
      https://www.marleaux-bass.com/marleaux-bass_consat_custom.html
      I would prefer social distance collection, although I'm happy to drive for an hour to deliver. (say 80 miles top)
      I can post, shipping and Insurance will be at the buyers expense
      Here is a summary, see pics for weight according to kitchen scales and the width of the nut.
      Body: Mahogany Top: Bubinga Neck: Maple Neck: Bolt on. Fretboard: Ebony (No Makers) Frets: 24 Scale: 34 inches Pickups: Delano SBC Electronics: Marleaux EQ BC3 Controls: Master Vol - Pickup Blend - 3-Band Active / Passive Switch: Pickup Split Hardware Finish: Black Tuners: Schaller Colour: Natural Case: Generic Made in Germany Happy to answer any questions.
      Cheers
      Neil.

      Marleaux is very famous for their amazing fretless basses, and this one is no exception. This is actually a very special bass, the only existing bolt-on mBass made by Marleaux. It is a bolt on as that is usually the preffered construction for a more balanced fretless sound.
      The bass is in absolute pristine condition with no dings or marks. I am only selling it because I need the money.








       
      Specs:
      - 34" scale, 
      - 5 string lined fretless 24 fret marks
      - tree 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 two removeable ebony finger ramps
      This bass costs new around 4800€,
      Open for trades/partial trades.
