    I was wondering the same thing. I notice it says they are "discontinued" when you look at it on the Musicians Friend website.

    I played one in GC, but I wan't too impressed with it. I hated the tone and the feel of it.

    Woodchuck, I noticed you had a four string for sale not to long ago, did you get rid of that because of the same reason? is there a big diff between the four and five string mods ??

    No, the 4 I had was great. I was in a financial bind at the time.

    I have that bass now and can honestly tell it is sweeeet! It has the U-Retro pre-amp in it and is boisterous as all heck. I've never played another Marcus Miller, so I can't say with certainty how big a difference the pre-amp makes, but in this particular bass, it's nice.

    Peace,
