Marco Bass N1 Bass Guitar
From his humble beginnings in Brazil carving bass bodies using broken coke bottles (the only tool he had available) to his time heading repairs for a large Japanese guitar factory, Marco Cortes has developed his unique take on building guitars and basses that sound as incredible as they feel.
“Many factories can build a comfortable instrument. I want my guitars to go beyond comfort. I want them to feel right in your hands. I want them to be an extension of you, to anticipate your touch and your movement. No machine can possibly understand the relationship between artist and tool” says Marco, who as a player himself knows exactly how an instrument should feel and respond.
Marco’s human touch also applies to his unique hand-wound pickups that deliver the response of active pickups with the soulful, natural sound of passive.
Refining a classic even further, the TFL Series is Marco Cortes’ personal take on a J-style bass. The neck feels familiar, yet modern. Marco’s signature hand-wound single coils deliver massive punch, ultra-clean highs, and plenty of low-end growl. This bass begs to be played!
In stock exclusively at the Great British Lounge and available today this Unique American made Ash bodied N1 was built for THE NAMM show then shipped to us. We are mightily impressed with the build but even more impressed with hand wound pickups that output the classic jazz sound with a powerful delivery that will satisfy each and every Jazz bass requirement.
As it was part of the demo basses taken by Marco to the NAMM show this bass is being offered with a 20% discount on the already competitive price. Supplied with fitted hard case.
Yes this bass really is for sale for £1036 – All I can say is we had high hopes for this new to the UK brand and we have not been disappointed! Come in and try for yourself, the Marco team took it to NAMM and it went down a storm and now it’s here.
