Fender American Vintage '74 Jazz
Yeah, but Miller has a bit more electronics on his bass. I'd bet you could achieve the Miller tone with that bass and the right amp settings. At least very close.

Is this attributable to active vs passive basses? (I don't know the answer, just wondering.)

Some people had said the previous '75 vintage series had pickups that sounded totally different than any 70s type pickups.

Lots of variables go into the sound as I'm sure you know.I have an actual '74 J and even though it's passive,it has that bite like Marcus' 77 when I use fresh steel strings.
The bass still sounds good though and Mel is defintely a funky bassist!!!
Thanks for sharing the clip!

Don't get me wrong, I like the tone. They don't sell these pups so I wonder what other pickups sound like these.

This bass would sound sick if you ran it through a sadowsky preamp pedal.
That will get you the more modern Marcus sound.
I really like the tone in the video as well.

Are there any owners who can comment?

I played one of these at gc.
Chunky U shaped neck but narrower overall, including at nut.
I liked both the feel and sound--but not the price!

To me it sounds quite different than a real 70's. The playing is sick!
|LaBassGuy ||09-07-2013 09:23 PM |
Yup sounds darker
