Fender 75 RI vs Marcus Miller Signature

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Stingus, Apr 11, 2004.


  1. What the hell happened to the prices on these basses? I could have sworn that the '75 RI basses were around $700, and the Marcuses were around 1200. Now it seems the prices have reversed? Same with the '57 RI-which I thought was made in Japan?

    I was just wondering if it had to do with both the reissues now being in the American line?

    O'kay here goes.
    I own both basses, the MIA 75R.I. is about $1400 bucks and the Marcus Miler is about $789.00 bucks. there is a MIJ 75R.I. bass but it is not a true 75R.I. The rear pup is not closer to the bridge. I think there is another difference but I can't remember what it is. I know there is a difference in sound!

    Yeah, I think you are thinking MIJ vs MIA.

    They both have a MIJ counterpart and the MIJ Miller and 75 were both about $700 (I think), while the MIA Miller is like $900-$1000 and the MIA 75 is about $1200 (new)
