    This is a really clean Marcus Miller. The reason for the low price is a previous owner used it for BEAD tuning, rather then file the nut a little he just let it groove its own way in which resulted in totally making the nut slot sloopy for the E string. I got the bass and I set it up for E tuning and the ADG strings play great, low action , no fret buzz and the neck is fantastic but of course if you try to tune the E string to pitch it slips out. It needs a new nut. That said this is probably the lightest MM i have held , its gotta be aorund 9 pounds. No scale to get accurate but I have had my fair share of basses and I have only had 2 over 10 pounds and they were t40s

    I have never put a nut on before so its something I rather practice on a cheaper bass or one not in as nice cosmetic condition, thus I was going to outsource it. I found a guy locally who will put in a nut for $25 and the nut is like $8. If I were to do that I would be asking more for the bass because at that point its totally functional and most MM's sell around $750-$800, rather then do this though I will post it at the certain price and maybe someone will pickup a deal and be able to fix it themselves on a lazy sunday.

    Since the photos have been taken I was able to remove the nut, it came out nicely, no damage to the finish or binding so its ready to have a new nut cut and dropped in place.

    Anways besides the nut its a 9/10 condition wise and plays really great. No case,will be packed with the neck off and packed well.

    $675 Shipped CONUS-Local pickup for less.

    Payment method would be MO , bank transfer or something along those lines we can discuss that

    My feelings exactly, if he wouldnt have used that zip tie and kept playing it as is then it wouldnt have grooved the wood. Sigh, just sad as its super clean besides that.

    Nut has been removed and slot cleaned. I did the removal and its done totally fine, I know my way around a bass decently but have never slotted a nut hence why its as is.

    Broken nut is included.

    I used to make my living as a luthier, and we patched bazzilions of the headstock "channels" just like this bass has. I can tell you from experience that a good luthier can make this look virtually imperceptible.

    Thanks again for the PM Ed.

    I am going to have this repaired and raise the price accordingly if it doesnt sell this week.

    I'm thinking pretty hard about this one... does it have the pickup cover?

    Do you mean besides the wear? there are no other issues with the bass and the rest of it is in nearly new cosmetic condition.

    I do take paypal.

    $675 includes freight anywhere in the CONUS, $650+freight would end up costing you more then $675 shipping included.

    Please PM me , I dont subscribe to my threads so anytime someone asks a question I dont see it for at times days.
