I went to GC today during lunch with the intention of buying a Marcus Miller Jazz. I'd seen some pretty good reviews on this board and liked it when I played one. My main bass is a Stingray 5 w/ a rosewood board. I've been thinking about picking up a jazz bass w/ a maple board because I thought it would be a good compliment. I've never owned a fender, or even a 'jazz' bass - but I've always liked their sound. While I was there I was talking to a salesman that was actually really helpful. He pulled a Geddy Lee off the wall because it was his favorite. I liked it, but didn't like the neck quite as much as the Marcus Miller. He also got me to try an American Jazz, which I really liked. So, my decision wasn't as clear cut as I thought. I've never been one to impulse buy so I left with nothing I've already done searches on the Marcus Miller, and the American Jazz bass but would appreciate any input from the Fender Jazz fans here on TB. Also, what are good street prices on both the Marcus Miller and the American Standard. I'm going to look around town to see what I can find used, but I'm not too wild about buying used sight unseen. I don't recycle gear, so I'm not too worried about resale value - I've only sold one piece of my gear and that was about 10 years ago. I'm sure I'll spend a few more lunch hours with both of them before I make a decision, but any insight before I invest in another bass would be appreciated. Thanks!
