Yesterday, I went to the mall and I bought my first Marcus Miller CD: Marcus Miller: The Ozell Tapes Official Bootleg. I was blown away. Song after song of amazing slap lines, matched with one of the most beautiful tones I have heard out of any bass. I was listening to it and exploring the jewel case when I came across his equipment list. It said that through the concert, he primarily used his 1978 Fender Jazz Bass (I think it was '78). It definatly sounded like your classic vintage J. I've heard Miller before, I always think of his "signature tone" sounding like fast slap on a vintage J. So my question is, does the Marcus Miller Jazz Bass achieve the tone that we associate with Marcus Miller? Or do you think that his sound lies in the basses of old? P.S. If a mod wants to help me out by eliminating some of the excess verbiage, please feel free to do so.
