Marleaux 12-String Bass
Marleaux Bass Guitars from Clausthal-Zellerfeld, Germany created this Model M-12 custom 12-string bass in 2015.

The bass incorporates a maple body with 3-piece maple neck and ebony fingerboard, 33” scale with 24 frets. Transparent black finish with actual silver inlaid in the body. Two Delano soap bar pickups with Marleaux 2-band electronics, active / passive. Controls are volume, pan, passive tone, and a double-deck bass / treble pot. Neck is just over 52 mm at the nut, 66 mm at the 12th fret. Custom ETS bridge, which took nearly a full year to develop. The new price of this 12 was 4,800 Euros.
