Really wish I could keep this but I need to sell it. Great Marcus tone and feel in a 5 string and made in the US. It has an Aguilar OBP-1 preamp with a VTC (passive tone control) that works in both passive and active. Controls are Volume,Blend,Passive Tone,Bass/Treble and active/passive switch. I had the Volume-Volume switched to Volume-Blend and had the wiring job cleaned up. The bass is in immaculate condition, no scratches that I can see, only some light wear on the pick-guard. This bass has the slap tone for days but can easily do Jaco or Dub or anything else. Will try and make some sound clips in the next couple days. For right now here's a link to the previous thread for pictures and more details. http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f126/fender-marcus-miller-v-natural-finish-extras-1020062/ $1500 shipped in a Fender HSC Here's a sound clip, first back pickup favored with bass boost, second both pickups with bass boosted and third slap with both bass and treble boosted: http://www.deanschmidtbass.com/Marcus 5 String.mp3 It can do so much more though.
