    Long time, no see, Talkbass! I just bought a Marcus Miller sig bass used from Guitar Center, and in true GC fashion, the salesman new nothing about the instrument. All he could tell me was that the previous owner 'changed some stuff,' and I was hoping this wonderful community could help me find out exactly what 'stuff' is new.

    The bass's serial number dates it at 1994-1995, made in Japan. Here's some pictures of what I thought would be important: http://imgur.com/a/8l5F0

    Also, what's the difference between the Mexican preamp and the Japanese preamp? Do I plug the bass into the passive input in my amp?

    Thanks from a total bass-tech noob :help:
