Each point of this bass has been designed for optimal ergonomics. Whether the choice of the profile of the handle and its radius, as well as certain details that are important such as the jack plug in the back and the front strap attachment which allows to have a flat strap, which does not pull not on the shoulder.
Fantastic playing sensations. Very low action. It falls perfectly on the shoulder, no tiredness of play even after a very long gig.

Up for sale is my recently acquired Japanese Fender Marcus Miller Jazz Bass in borderline mint condition. Like so many others before it, I just cannot wean myself off my Flea Bass, so this is too nice a bass to have sat around not being played.
Serial Number dates it to 2006-2008.
I'll have to find some scales to weigh it properly, but it's very lightweight for one of these. The other two I've played have been anchors. As a rough ballpark it feels like it weighs the same as my Flea, which is 8lbs 8oz.
2 band active EQ (with freshly installed battery) with active passive switch. Does the whole super jazz thing to a T, with a balls to the wall slap tone.
Frets are in great condition. Truss rod works. Set-up is low and buzz free.
Cosmetically it's superb for a 14 year old bass. There is one 'tiny' ding on the upper bout and some slight tarnishing on the tuners but nothing else to report.
Comes with a hardcase (in superb condition) and straplocks.
Only thing I would consider trade wise is a Warwick Thumb 4 with slight cash adjustment my way depending on condition.
As always with me, cash on collection only (sorry I won't post) or happy to meet up within a fairly large radius to myself here on the Warwickshire/Oxfordshire/Gloucestershire border, or even deliver for petrol costs.
No offers or lowballers please. I'm not in any kind of a rush to sell.
Thanks for looking!
Very original 1966 Fender Precision bass. Stripped and refinished at some point in the 70s, it was originally sunburst. Neck date is 5th October ’66, one of the last CBS transition basses (F stamp neck plate, but unstamped tuners).
Pickup has one grey bottom, one black bottom, pencil dated May ’67 which is a bit of an oddity, but not the first time i've heard of it. Scratch plate, pick ups, hardware are all original. Pots that came with the base were terrible 70s ones (likely changed when it was stripped) that I replaced with new, but correct CTS taper pots using the original cap.
The untouched, worn-back neck is the best I've ever played on a bass, as you'd expect from something that's been played for over 50 years. Small ding at the 12th fret which is unnoticeable when playing.
My number 1 bass, with unbeatable playability and tone. Repro bridge and pick up covers and fender hard case included. Sensible inquiries only. Collection only, located in Worcester. No trades. No international sales. Any questions or try outs or anything at all, don't hesitate to give me a shout. Cheers!
