I have had the distinct pleasure of meeting Marco a year and a half ago in Nashville at the NAMM show. The quality of workmanship on his basses is very high, he is a very gifted luthier. Last summer I purchased this P-bass fromhim and it has become one of the very few basses that I always take to recording sessions. The playability is second to none and the tone is righteous!
When I wanted a 6 string passive J bass with a great organic essence, of course I knew where to turn.I actually got more than what I asked for. I got a killer 6 string passive J bass (with Marco’s pickups) with the advantage of having a nice B and C string that sounded like it was actually part of the instrument. I can say with great confidence and high satisfaction that Marco did indeed deliver.
I have been playing Marco bass guitars since 2008. They will remain my primary bass guitar for many years to come. They have amazing tone, exotic/gorgeous woods used, high grade hardware and those wonderful pickups that only Marco can make. One of the things I like most about my Marco is when another bass player tries my guitar and hearing them say, “OHHH, AHHH, Wow, amazing guitar.” I had the opportunity to meet Marco Cortes a while back. He is one of the kindest, sweet and delightful guys I have ever met.
