  1. I see a lot on TB about the four string Marcus Miller, and was wondering about the 5. How good is it? Whats the tone like?
    What is the B String like?

    Share your experiences.

    I wouldn't mind one in Sunburst myself.

    I had one. Liked it a lot. It now has a happy home in Sweden. I would have kept it but I needed to sell it to pay off my Sadowsky and Bergantino debt. It pains me a bit when I see an MMV or hear Marcus but I'm working on it with my therapist. :)

    The bass sounds good, feels good, looks good. B is not as good as my Sadowsky but that's a Sadowsky. It's a great bass for that Marcus Miller sounds as well as that bridge pick up bite.

    I think you would be very happy with the bass, depending on what you have played.
