  5. I see you have an SX as well as the two signature jazz's!! How does the SX compare to the Marcus Miller?? I've played the marcus miller i think its one of the best jazz's ive played, but barring in mind the price difference how does the SX compare to those two great basses??

    Well to be honest the SX got defretted in a home defret job the minute I got it, so its certainly not as "playable" as the Miller Jazz (which I think is just a playing monster). Especially when you consider how poor my fretless playing is. That said, for the bucks the SX was a great bass (before I fiddled with it) and would certainly recommend it as a purchase.

    Im still getting a feel for the 88 Jazz, but the Miller is definately a keeper. That said its my second Miller and the first I could just not get to feel right for me.
