Ive got the bug to own a Jazz bass again. I know there are higher-end brands I could go for, but Ive always been a Fender fan. Im also looking for the highest quality jazz bass I can find that Im not going to sweat bullets over every time I have to check it into baggage in an airport, or an accidental ding. With that being said, I was hoping someone might have insight on both Fenders Marcus Miller signature model, and the American Standard Jazz. Doesnt make much of a difference, but Im looking at the 5er in both models. Ive never been taken in by a celebritys name on a product, but I have to say, from the looks and videos Ive watched so far, the Marcus really seems pretty high quality. Im not crazy about the pickup cover, but of course I can just take that off. So if anyone has played both, Id love to hear your opinions on tone quality, playability, (particularly ease of access to the upper register), and/or anything else you deem noteworthy. Thanks in advance!
