Marcus Miller’s combination of soulful groove and astounding technical ability has made him one of the jazz world’s preeminent virtuoso bassists. Fenderâs stylish Marcus Miller Jazz Bass guitar is soulful and astounding, too…
It has an ash body, distinctive black pickguard/control plate and one piece C-shaped maple neck with a maple fingerboard featuring white binding, white pearl block inlays and a satin finish (gloss finish on the headstock, plus Miller’s signature).
Incredible tone comes from dual vintage-style Jazz Bass single-coil pickups, and the two-band active EQ has an active/passive mini-toggle switch. Other features include chrome neck pickup cover, knurled chrome-dome knobs on the volume controls and black Jazz Bass knobs on the tone controls, a Badass® Bass II bridge and three-bolt neck plate.
This particular bass was deadstock, which means it was never sold. It appears to display shop wear as a demo model, but does not exhibit any significant damage. There are 2 dings near the bottom of the bass by the strap pin. Otherwise the bass is in very excellent lightly used condition.
The bass includes the original pickup cover, weighs 9 pounds 13 ounces but does not include a case.
