up for sale is my Sire Marcus Miller 5 string, gen 1 - the one with satin neck and satin body.. Ash body, really nice and really light for and ash body (4 - 4.1 kg), well balanced, the best one and lightest one I played. It has all those M7 variable sounds with all the switches for each pick up (series, single coil, parallel) + very flexible preamp. Almost perfect shape, couple little scratches + ding on the headstock. Everything works on the bass. Most importantly - It has BOTH battery covers
If someone would like this bass as a project bass - I can sell just the body and neck as well (200£)..
I would rather sell...but possible trades / partial trades possible

Cool and rare Gibson from the '70s. Apparently less then 1.000 were made, so there aren't too many of them around.
As you can see from the pictures, the bass has been used. It has a lot of user marks and finish checking all over. The bridge has been replaced (original one in poor condition is still there), as well as the truss rod cover. It should be mentioned that the plastic cover of the bridge pickup has broken at the point where the adjustment screw enters. Someone tried to melt it together again, but its still loose. I've set the hight, and left it this way.
Further this bass is in good functional condition. The neck is straight and all hardware and electronics function like they should.
This bass plays and sounds great. It has an open, clear and full punchy sound. Not what is usually expected from a Gibson. It's also a very light instrument; my kitchen scale says it's only 3,35 kilos!
The original hardcase is included.
Asking €1.100 (approx £975)
Trades are welcome; I am especially interested in a stingray. Ideally a 2eq with lacquered neck, maple fretboard, honeyburst..
2nd bass up.....
Edit: Price drop £500 £475.00 (trade value £550) a lot of bass for your money... to coin @AndyTravis phrase “all those sounds in just 8lbs” 😂 Some new pics up to showing how nice the colour is . Have also given the neck a clean and some lemonoil and it’s come up beautifully (new pic added)
A rather lovely precision lyte I acquired in a trade last week. As light as it is, I am just not going to use it at the minute and so it has made the sale list. I also prefer Jazz style necks.
It is as it came to me and would benefit from some new strings but they are good for now. It’s a black sparkle colour, hard to see in the pics but it’s very nice. It’s made in Japan with an “A” serial number which I believe denotes 85-86, if that’s right (Someone please let me know if that’s different) it’s in great condition! All stock I believe and working as it should do with the p thump and jazz tones, both combined a lovely and warm tone. There’s a small scratch in the lacquer by the jack (see pic), this can’t be seen from the front and a small indent at the 4th fret (see pic) neither detract from how it plays 😃 Happy to send more pics if anyone needs them.
Comes in a fender padded gig bag.
Cash is king, but as I’ve been asked about trades: Fender P deluxe (PJ) the one with the jazz neck, not in burst or black.
Fender Marcus Miller (natural or white) and cash your way
Collection or meet is preferred, shipping is possible at buyers cost
