For sale is my Fender Marcus Miller signature Jazz Bass. I bought it on BassChat in around 2012; not sure when exactly or who from, since the messages are gone. It had been upgraded by the previous owner with a Sadowsky VTC preamp and Hipshot D-Tuner in matching reverse/nickel. You can say "modded, not upgraded" but I think it's hard to disagree these are legitimate upgrades. The VTC feature itself makes so much difference, the tone control being functional in both passive and active modes allows for some superb tones. Like, cutting most highs with the tone control while boosting treble with the active knob (which is centered somewhat lower, freq-wise) when on bridge pickup soloed, gets you that dark but focused and super spiky tone of electric jazz/fusion virtuoso.
Then of course you get a superb slap tone, clean and classic jazz bass sounds and everything you can reasonably expect from a bass of this format. It's bright, punchy, meaty, growly, snappy, airy, open, clear and big.
The bass is super playable. When I bought it, the nut was a tiny bit high, I found, so I got Andrew from Anaconda Basses (they weren't really a thing yet then, about to launch) to make me a brass one. It improved playability and effortlessness in lower registers, open string sound and sustain (possibly) and harmonics (audibly).
It's as good a jazz bass as you'll get, if you're into this sort of thing.
I recall checking the serial number once, and the result said 2007-2010. Also, I think it weighed at 4.1kg, will edit if I remember wrong. It's fairly light and very well balanced. The battery keeps forever. I changed it recently after more than 2 years. It was still going strong, just messed with my inner comfort.
Unfortunately, I seem to have inherited arthritic tendencies, so combined with my long fingers, I can't really play a jazz neck anymore. I've commissioned a build of a bass based in some ways on this one, and it will also be funded by this sale - therefore no trades, I'm afraid.
I'm willing to post, will need to figure it out though. I will change strings to brand new D'Addario XL steels or nickels (buyer's choice) in 45-105.
This is the best guitar I've ever owned (and played). I was never much of a P-bass person, but this is just so nice in every way. Incredibly well balanced and the tone is just beautiful, both passive and active. It's one of these things you can just plug in and not worry about anything. I am very sad to get rid of it, but a recent reality check means I'm selling it (and most of my other stuff).
I bought this brand new from bassdirect.co.uk for an "offer" price of £2,200 (this is the actual listing: http://w.bassdirect.co.uk/bass_guitar_specialists/Xotic_XP4_Sherwood_Green.html). Since then, it has never left the house (apart from when I moved house) and been looked after extremely well. You're basically getting a new instrument if you buy this - even the plastic film is still on the scratch plate.
I think the colour is awesome on this bass, but I guess that's a matter of taste.
It comes with the original case, which is fantastic.
I'm not interested in any trades, sorry. I need to get rid of stuff, not just replace one thing with another.
Local pickup preferred but I'm sure we can agree something if you need it delivered.
Happy to answer any questions.
For virus-related reasons, I need to shift this quickly now. Price dropped to £1450.
(Ps. I'm also selling a Sadowsky Metro 5, Sire Marcus Miller V7 - look out for that posting as well, if you're interested.)
