Fender Marcus Miller Signature Bass MIJ.

by bassbelly on 09-25-2012 at 10:16 AM
Think this bass is a 2006 ish? but the Jap records seem to say it is a 1985 to 86 which is impossible!

Is it your experience that Jap seriel numbers are un reliable. It is the concensus in Europe!

This bass has a lovely on piece Ash body beautiful grain through clear finish. It's in VG to Mint condition and compares to other Marcus Miller basss's.
I think later models have carbon truss rods, so if you know anything about this model please let me know. Thanks.

Cost more than some folks cars, and was my lifetime gift to myself. I could have got as good for $100 new from ebay! So it's not easy to find a Luthier who understands all types of stringed instruments.

Back in The Saddle!

This bass lesson gives me so much pleasure. I come into my little studio (spare room!) close the door. that keeps two cats and a Pointer from messing up my stuff! I look at the 2 basses dust my amp (OUCH!) that Peavey logo is real sharp. Anyone else notice that?

I practice in 2 parts.
I start with my Spanish Custom clone of a Yamaha 374 2 x H/Buckers. I call her Linda!
Linda has a think wide neck around 44mm and it's a real stretch for my damaged hand/elbow. But I

Gonna write out the short whole note half note route. My brain is trying to spasm, but am just walking away and coming back when I'm calmer!
I have it now!
Turned to page 5 and panicked! Crap. My eyes are dancing around Figour 1, and although I started to smile at Figour 2 like it was a baby I knew, I just could not settle on it. It is so busy visually. I need to find a way to break it down?
The 2 figours are driving me crazy! I feel upset and disappointed in myself!
