Worth buying and keeping a MIJ Marcus Miller bass?

    I don't really need another bass, but loves Marcus like every one does...

    And now that Marcus Miller 4-stringers are no longer Made in Japan, is it worth looking for and buying one to keep?

    (I already know from the discussions here that the Made in Mexico ones are equally good if not better in quality (e.g. the new 18v preamp).)

    What are your thoughts?

    If you buy a used one you likely won't lose anything, but as a pure investment, it's not a great idea, nor are most basses. Now if you're going to enjoy owning and/or playing it, that may change the equation.
