I found a Marcus Miller signature bass but different with the CIJ 7802.Here are pics. The seller told me it is a custom built on Mexico jazz bass. Could someone tell me is this a genuine or fake one? [attachment=65049:1.jpg]

It annoys me that this listing wasn't pulled a second time for being blatantly misleading. That fake signature decal on the headstock is enough for it to be a breach of copyright, but I don't really mind that, it's more that he's lying by omission about what it really is - at best a butchered Made in Mexico with stickers on the neck.

It's not going to sound any more like a Marcus Miller than a standard MIM maple-necked bass, since it doesn't have the right pickup spacing and the body is almost certainly not ash.

I doubt it's even ever met a Fender, let alone started out as one.

It's just some geezer trying to pull a fast one on Mums and Dad's at Xmas.

We should all report it.

It's near me (m27) but after my initial jokiness in the previous thread, I fear i'd end up smashing it over his lying bastard head.

So he did - AND a load of waterslide decal paper. The cheeky f****r. The pre-amp was a tenner. Some poor sod paid over the odds there. I really hope it wasn't bought as a christmas present for someone else

I'm reporting it to eBay to make sure the person who bought your "Fender" knows it's a fake and gets a refund."
