Marcus Miller Jazz pricing?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by EAdanikDG, Mar 4, 2010.

  1. Hi, I've noticed that the Marcus Miller 5, is twice the price of the same model 4. Why?

    The Marcus Miller 5 is American Made, where the Marcus Miller 4 is Japanese.
  3. Ok, but why? Does Marcus Miller actually use a 4?

    i actually did not know that, i guess that explains why when you see him play his actual fender signature live, its usually the 5 string.
  5. Thanks rabidwolverine, that kinda explains my second question. :D
  6. So they just make the 4 in Japan, coz he doesn't actually use it so they don't care?

    Marcus uses custom shop replica's of his '77 Jazz I believe. Or a fiver.

    Making the four string signature model in Japan allows it to be in a more affordable price range.

    IMHO they both are great basses. Enjoy the 4 at its present price or better yet get one used before they raise its price. :)
