    Hello, just curious if there are any made in america Marcus Miller Jazz Basses out there or if they are all imports? What about the Geddy Lee model? I can't seem to find any info on this.

    Any and all help is appreciated!

    Thanks,
    evan

    I believe both models are MIJ only.

    Is the 4 string Marcus bass MIJ?
     
  5. Geddy Lee and M² sig are MIJ (the 5er is MIA)
    These basses are great because they're cheap compared to the US line, and you can improve the bass easily , especially the M² sig(pups, pre).
    I have only one negative point about these basses, (I have a Geddy Lee) the tuners are the weakest of all the bass industry. I would've done better myself!

    About the M²V why didn't they put a Badass V?
    it's like a Top load or S.T.B bridge whereas they did say, in the Fender 2003 Catalogue :"The bridge is a massive Badass V"...:meh:
