Does anyone have pics of a Fender Marcus Miller 4 model in sunburst? Its impossible to find any!
I'm almost 100% sure they didn't make a MM sig in Sunburst.
I think it only comes in natural.
Check your sources, brah. Its made in Natural, Sunburst, and Olympic White.
Here ya go
Oh my god that's hot.
My jaw is on the floor right now. I'm trying so hard to resist selling my Stingray for one.
I played Cheezewiz's new natural MM jazz yesterday, it is a killer bass. Fender Japan cannot be beat for the money, best in class IMO.
Now that's a pretty Jazz, if there ever was one. The maple fretboard does a great disservice to it, IMO. I tend not to like maple FBs on any basses.
oh my god !!!!xcentral34x i know what are you thinking i'm in the same position. i've the indecision of selling a stingray for a marcus miller, am i doing right ??...!!!!!
my mind is exploding please help!!
anybody got a picture of the olympic white?
that's a dandy lookin' bass!
That sunburst is sweet. I would have preferred mine in burst or white, but they are exceedingly hard to find, while the natural is fairly easy. Im guessing a great deal many more naturals were made. Don't get me wrong..the nattie is nice..but that burst...WOW.
The blue sparkle? Are you INSANE?
I mean, um, please let me know if that blue sparkle becomes available. It is of course quite horrible but I might offer you a small bit of change for it.
do a google image search for Fender "marcus miller" (no not put quotes around the entire phrase. I found pics of white, sb, and natural. Great looking basses. Still thinking about it, but I would have to play one first.
a pair of Fralins and a OBP-1 preamp...then it would really rock! (of course it would also be over $1100 at that point )
I had a Sunburst Marcus Miller with the U-Retro preamp in it. Killer bass, but I sold it to make way for something a little more "killer". As much as I liked the Marcus, I'm not certain I would have traded away a Sting Ray to get one.
They'r edifferent beasts, but the Ray would be more to my liking.
I would take the Marcus Miller over the Ray. Really not a MusicMan fan.
Sunburst finishes can be iffy, but the one's I've seen on the MM are uniformly good.
Then its no MMsig He has a '77 Jazz, ash body with maple board, and a bit of mods: the pickguard, the Badass bridge, electronics,... He also has a MMsig 5 that Fender made for him, also in natural; a fretless Fodera 5, spalt maple top and a bass from Ken Smith (though I have not yet seen him play it live). Do you see any sunburst or olympic white basses listed among these? no? then they only look like they were MM sigs, but he actually didnt play them, so they wouldnt deserve to be called MM sig
One more thing: the pickguard is all black, not chrome
Fender may be marketing this as a Marcus Miller signature, but Marcus has not much to do with this bass
The pickguard on my sunburst was all black. I believe that is the case with the one pictured on this thread also. There appears to be a rather intense reflection that makes part of it look chrome.
I thinks its a pretty safe bet in saying that not everyone on here is buying a MMsig or even a Geddy sig to play the same instrument that those cats play. Their's are american originals and their signature instruments are not. If I were to buy one of these instruments it'd be because they offered something visually or auditory that I wanted and nothing more.
