Marleaux Mbass

Big fundamental, growl, warm

Because of the elongated upper body half the neck is stiffer and vibrates more vividly. The skinnier waist makes this single-cut bass lighter and more elegant. These changes in construction make a perfect balanced sound and an unbeatable B string.

In conjunction with the the new Delano times-square pick ups and the Marleaux V2 electronics, the new Mbass is a versatile work-horse. As always, various combinations of wood are available.
