OVERVIEW:

 

Lovely example of some of Jon's more traditional work.

 

It's kitted out with the superb Villex Pickups , great as they add a mid-choke in addition to the more traditional hi-choke afforded by conventional passive basses. The Mid Choke enables a smiley eq curve to be achieved with out the noise of an active preamp. This thing has Marcus tone for days...and no batteries required.

 

It also comes with a Genuine Hipshot D tuner, great for those moments when you need to drop the E down to plumb the sonic depths available below conventional tuning.

 

I'm not utterly sure about the reverse machine head origins. I know Jon uses Schaller and Hipshot currently but I don't know if this was the case back then. ABM maybe? 

 

There are a few dings on the bottom underside of the bass ( picture) genuine use not designer road rash. There is a ding on the neck just north of the neck plate ( pictured) but due to the thick poly laquer it doesn't reach the wood below, but it's there.

 

TONE: 

 

You can dial in Marcus tone Immediately. Especially if you tug on the mid choke. The front pickup gave me a particularly pleasing Robbie Shakespeare dub experience on a session recently. In essence the 70's Jazz tone is there in full effect.

 

It's not a lightweight at 4.5 kg but not a backbreaker by any means. And I've done long gigs with it without issue ( not the same can be said of my go-to, a 5 string Status Empathy 😏

 

Any further questions ? Then feel free to drop me a line. I'm based in West Norfolk, but travel to London each week to work so pickup is available in two locations. I will post at buyers expense and will pack appropriately.  

 

Have a good week!

I owned this bass for many years after buying it on here. Everything that’s been said is true. The range of tones from this bass is outstanding for a passive bass. I commissioned a 5 string version of this bass from Jon with the same electronics and pickups. Whoever buys it will not be disappointed.

Thank you. Maybe you can clear up who makes the machines on this. They feel great but I have no idea of their origin...😀

Yes it's Volume, Balance, Mid Choke, Tone control. 

Sorry let me confirm that properly. Looking down at the bass controls from your playing position... in a left to right direction....Volume, PICKUP Balance, Mid Choke ( mid cut) , and finally the control nearest the Jack socket is a conventional ( passive) Tone control which rolls off the treble. Hope that's clearer.
