    Been looking hard at a P5 for my next bass acquisition. Weighing it against a Bruce Thomas Profile p-bass from the UK, but Sire is driving a hard bargain with this one. Also they work in volleys of instruments so they preserve quality over quantity.

    Any thoughts to Marcus Miller P5? Need your opinion or thoughts!

    I don’t have an opinion on one yet BC they are currently unavailable. I really wish they would have used the jazz bass profile neck or….on the P7 put the split coil in the P pickup position. But I’m definitely going to get one as soon as they are available again.

    Looking for opinions of the P5. Worth it. How does it compare to Fender Player Series?
     
  4. Best steal at the moment. Far better than the Fender Player Series. If you don’t mind the Sire headstock, it’s a no brainer IMO.
    I changed the Pickups and put LaBellas on it. Super fine bass for less money.
