TFL Series

A classic, perfected. 

Refining a classic even further, the TFL Series is Master luthier 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!

TFL feature an extended 34.5″ scale, Marco’s unmistakeable neck profile, polyurethane coated neck, and a slightly slimmer body (choice of classic Alder or bright Poplar, custom woods priced on request). TFLs are the perfect tool for the working bass player needing versatility and top-performance. Available in relic, matte, or gloss finish.
