    I'm looking around for something to do bar gigs with and these seem like great basses, and look cool too! What kind of prices have you guys seen on used ones?

    There's a couple on eBay for $300-$500. New I think they're $750 - I actually own one and it's a great jazz bass. I didn't buy it because it was a Miller Sig - but because it was probably the best jazz bass I'd ever played.

    $475-550ish. Do a search for "Marcus Miller" in the For Sale forum. You'll get at least a dozen threads. Those should give you a good idea of the range. I think there's one for sale down there right now...

    Go to the classified on Talkbass. Someone posted one yesterday for $475 shipped.

    I have owned one for a year and just finished hotrodding it Sadowsky pickups and J-Retro preamp. The sound is the envy of all my friends. haha! They are beautiful sounding basses acoustically, it is just the electronics that come with the bass do not pick up the natural sound of the bass.

    They are great basses except for the preamp on the bass is very noisy and cheap. You'll probably end up changing the preamp.

    Most I've seen have been around $550-$700, which does seem pretty high to me.
