Marco Bass Guitars Unveils The N1 Bass Guitar

Marco Bass Guitars N1 Bass

One of the booths at the NAMM Show that always has tons of buzz is the Marco Bass Guitars display. This year they introduced the N1 bass, which they describe as a game changer. Although the bass is their entry-level model, it’s still made in the USA in the Marco shop.

“Marco Cortes has spent over three decades perfecting his craft,” their website reads. “From the hand-wound pickups to the smooth, buttery action of his basses, Marco ensures each and every N1 series bass embodies his signature boutique quality, at a musician-friendly price.”

The N1 can be customized, but its standard features include a swamp ash body, maple neck, and either maple or rosewood fingerboard. The single coil pickups are controlled with a pair of volume knobs and a master tone. Marco offers the N1 in five finishes: Satin Natural, Transparent Red, Transparent Surf Green, Black, and Almond.

The Marco Bass Guitars N1 is available for order now with a direct price of $1,200.
