I know at least one lefty Shergold Marathon Bass 6 exists, but it's possible there is only one. Shergold only made a total of 95 Marathon Bass 6's so they are quite rare.

As far as I've seen from looking around, no one currently makes a clone of the Marathon Bass 6. And it is quite different than any other Bass VI on the market, having a much wider neck (the Shergold Marathon Bass 6 has a nut width of 49mm, whereas the Fender Bass VI has a nut width of 42mm. For reference the Musicman SR5 has a nut width of 44.5mm).

There's some light talk of trying to get Eastwood to do a Marathon Bass 6 clone but I don't think anyone has pursued it with any gusto. I've inquired to Serek and Regenerate semi-recently but both are not taking custom orders at the moment.

Three gin and tonics, and three feet.
