    Hey TB'ers,

    I'm heading to a recommended local bass shop to get the 1st setup on my Marcus Miller Jazz Bass.

    I usually just go in, and let them setup my basses. But I really want to make sure that my MM is setup PERFECTLY.

    Do you guys have any advice on a good setup for these MM basses?

    Thanks in advance.

    can you define what you mean by this?

    i'm not too sure.
  5. the fretboard has such a big radius or small for that matter that it is hard to set up if you have no experience in setting up a bass... you have to take in consideration the playing style, the amount of bending... and it is hard to get the right heights with out measurements...
