Well, the time is now. I've been saving for buying a Jazz Bazz so much Time. The bass i want is The standard american Jazz Bass. But i recently discovered the Marcus Miller model, made in japan. This one is an active bass, meanwhile the american is a passive one. The price is almost the same... so which should i buy? There's one thing i don't like from marcus miller's: it's signed!! puagh!! and i don't know how to erase the ****ing signature.
