Fender Marcus Miller Redux - Now Finished

Recommended Posts

Sorry. Sorting two preteens who have hit puberty within a minute of each other and are fighting over the statement...

”most of my friends are girls”

Ella is a girl. Dan claims that she’s made a sexist comment. 20 minutes they’ve rowed with each other....

Utter Knobheads. 🙄

Anyhow, @LukeFRC here we go...

Thanks mate. Love these basses - I will say while there’s a bit more control over the sound, there’s not much in it with stock vs £500 worth of electronic wizardry. 
 

Will try to knock a video comparison up tonight when the warring factions have gone to bed early.

Hah - he speaketh truth. We have two preteen girls and it's awful: one is Kevin the Teenager and the other is manic and angry all the time.

That's a nice bass - what's under the square pickscratchguardplate section?

Debating the pickguard being simplified into a one piece. It looks a little clunky with all the extra screws...dunno.

I’m on 4, she keeps on saying “one more” I keep on pretending to have a headache...it’s quite easy to pretend...I do have a permanent one.

This is Maggies latest...

That would mean taking the whole lot off to change/check the battery thought wouldn't it?

Well My learned friend...

Sadowsky Pre battery lasts years. If it were to fail...it has a very smart pull pot on the tone control which makes it completely passive and still has a tone control.

so while I see your point...it has its own “airbag” built in.

It’s a Marcus Miller jazz - it the pickguard that is making it look a little clunky- not the screws that at least give the pickguard a useful reason for being that shape 

otherwise what you are describing is a blue Sadowsky jazz with 70s spacing and a maple neck!

Ah, I see. An aesthetic choice for you then mate. I think it looks tip top as it is.

This. IMHO the can be no doubt what it is at it's core, albeit the guts have been swapped out.

I used to call my original MM “The Shittenbacker” on account of the pickguard bearing a fleeting resemblance.

Then I owned a Ric.

And then I called my Marcus Miller “that nice jazz bass which plays and sounds good”
