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 Modulus Flea, 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 (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!
Recent purchases of both a Dimension V HH deluxe and a jazz deluxe V mean I have a surplus of 5-string Fenders, so my 2014 Fender Dimension STD V HH is up for sale.
2-piece centrally-bookmatched alder body
maple neck with graphite rods
Rosewood fingerboard with 21 frets
2 dimension humbuckers with horseshoe pole pieces
Fender hi mass bridge (now being used on the new Ultra series)
spoke wheel truss rod adjustment
Vol/Vol/Tone controls (totally passive)
Fender light weight tuners with tapered shaft including B string stealth retainer
Its absolutely immaculate - I cannot see any evidence of scratches, dents or damage (even the almost-universal chip in the top of the headstock is missing). It’s been recently cleaned and set up with Warwick Black label strings. the neck has an almost natural wood feel to it but is nice and smooth and the asymmetric neck is a breeze to play. string spacing is a comfortable 18mm at the bridge. Weight is 4.5Kg or 9.9lbs but balance is good so it feels fine on a strap.
I think this is a bargain for a USA-made Fender V whose fit and finish is as good as their custom shop - both the woodwork and finishing on this bass is fantastic.
I can now offer postage on this - for some reason I forgot that both it’s hard case and box it was shipped in to mr was in the garage. Postage will be UPS, fully insured at cost.
Any questions, just ask!
Made in Japan circa 1984-1987 going by the serial number.
Lovely gloss black with red tort guard and a dark rosewood board.
38mm at nut and 8 1/2 lbs on the scales. Wearing (I think) Rotosound swing rounds. Has Fender Gen4 Noiseless pickups.
Some minor dings but nothing really noticeable.
Purchased recently from the mighty @walshy and a lovely player - but I've seen a 5er I'll need to move quickly on.
Will be shipped in hardcase.

For sale - my American Deluxe Precision in natural finish with maple fingerboard.
P/J pickup configuration. 21 Fret. 3 band active EQ with Active/Passive switch. Weighing in at 9lbs.
The bass dates to 2012, and is still in excellent condition with all original parts. There is one ding on the top edge of the body, which I only recently discovered by feel, and couldn't capture in a photograph.
Looking for £950 £850 £800!
Price includes spare tort pickguard, original Fender hard case +candy, and two planet waves straps with strap locks (if you want them!).
Inspired by a thread on this forum I recently considered converting this bass to passive, so will also throw in the custom pickguard I bought for this project.
Collection preferred, or buyer to arrange shipping (I am based in North Essex).
Not looking for trades. Sorry.
