This Marathon bass shows plenty of play wear and checking but overall is in good condition. The neck is quite chunky but its straight and plays smoothly. All electronics and hardware work as they should.

The Marathon Bass was evolved from the Hayman 4040 bass which was built by Shergold for the Dallas music company.

There are two main versions of the Marathon, known unofficially as the Mark I and Mark Ia. This is a 1a it has stereo output.

The pickup is in effect two mini-humbuckers in the same casing. The stereo effect is derived by putting the pickup coils under the first and second strings on one channel and the third and fourth the other half of the pickup.
