    Hi guys, this is my first post and after searching for this subject I could not find any specific information, so sorry if I'm repeating the topic again.

    I'm planning to get this bass and was wondering what your thoughts might be regarding the quality/performance of the bass? I read reviews on harmony-central.com but was hoping to hear some to the point comments instead of bragging about the equipment and experience.

    Also, if there would be any suggestions for a retailer? So far MusiciansFriend.com and Music123.com seem to offer it and are currently out of stock. I'm upgrading from Ibanez SR400 which after two set-ups still has a lot dead spots and I think is exhausted its entry-level capabilities.

    All comments would be highly appreciated, thank you. Peace.

    A lot of people seem to like the MM bass. they should be okay, they are made in Japan (the 5 strings are u s ) I don’t know a whole lot about em. I think The Bass Guru (could be wrong) had a 4 string MM and now has the 5, so he'd know what to tall you.
    Welcome to talk bass, enjoy yourself. :)
  3. I've played a Marcus Miller 5, and, with the exception of my preference to NOT have a fifth string, I thought that it was a very fine instrument. Very cool pickup-switch option. And it just looks awesome.

    Thanks guys, yeah I was thinking of MM5 but it's just out of my league at least for the next couple of years. MM4 though seems just right, I'd get a 75 reissue, but that one costs twice as much... So, seems like the choice has been made, just looking for some more info. Peace.
  5. the mm4 is such a steel. For a non-MIA bass, too. I personally thing its nicer than the $800 MIA Fenders.
  6. I have one for sale!
