    Strictly a feeler......What i have is a "well used" Marcus Miller Jazz 4 from Japan. "Well used" meaning it has been my main gigging bass for the last 4 years ,travelled overseas, and has been a big part of my sound, so it definitely has its share of battle scars(for good reason, though-PM me for more info). Here are the details: olympic white finish, Aguilar obp-1 preamp( huge amount of treble and bass boost), Nordstrand hum-cancelling split pups, non-stock tuners(Fender japan 70s reissue). This is an exceptionally responsive and articulate axe as well as quite verstaile-it looks sharp too.

    Here's what I'm potentially looking for:
    Warwick 5-strings( sorry but NO Corvette stds unless they are from before 99, and I'm very partial to wenge necks and Streamer body styles

    I also am partial to Lakland Skyline 44-02 or 55-02 models
    Shoot me a PM and again, this is strictly a feeler. I'm just trying to see whats out there. Cheers!

    I think that this is allowed, so at some point i will put up a tune from an artist I gig with that is a good showcase of the Marcus' sound (has a short little funky solo section). Cheers!

    Not selling outright right now( unless you have what is mentioned in the original post). This may change, but for now this is just a FT feeler.

    Thanks for the bump, Rob. I actually have been playing the snot out of a 76 P-bass I just got (p.s. I'm doing ALL of the festivals in town this season-we should catch up). Looks like I might have a deal w/ a 90s streamer coming through for a good price, so I might be closing this thread soon.....

    Bump to see what's out there still....The most favorable trade would be a 90s Warwick Streamer bolt-on 5-string ( french cherry body, yep that one) OR a Lakland Skyline 44-02 or 55-02.

    Still possibly looking for a Warwick or Lakland 5ver-hell, the more beat up/modded/ player-worn the better!
    The good:
    -finish has aged nicely to a creamy shade
    -hardware, pre and pups are top quality
    -tone and dynamic range-versatile and responsive
    -beautiful board and great neck profile w/ skunk stripe, slightly hand sanded down to get rid of sticky gloss
    -active/passive option
    -threaded inserts for battery compartment
    -frets in good shape
    -has been only pro-setup
    -it's been all over the states as well as to India with me!
    -gets compliments whenever i gig it
    The bad/uglyz;
    -cig burn on headstock
    -tiny drill holes thru headstock
    -non-original tuners
    -some body contours have small sanded down spots to get rid of dings (looooong story)
    -screw stuck in body from where thumbrest laid between pickups( can ship w/ another pickguard)
    -obvious players wear and tear, but for good reason

    Let me know what you think.

    For those who have PMed me, I'm not particularly interested in doing a cash sale right now. My main interest is a trade for Warwick 5-strings including:
    Thumb bolt-on-any year/condition
    Streamer bolt-on/Masterman/Jazzman/LX-any year/condition
    Corvette/FNA/jazzman-any year/condition
    or...If you have a particularly beat up Streamer Stage II....
    Not particularly interested in a Corvette Std 5 as I already have a sweetheart of a std 4-string.
