2004 Fender Marcus Miller Jazz Bass Natural Ash w/ Active EQ, Near-Mint, Japan CIJ


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2004 Fender Marcus Miller Signature Jazz Bass in near-mint, 100% original condition and in perfect working order. From the earlier "Crafted in Japan" production run of the (now discontinued) Marcus Miller Jazz Bass, the instrument features an ash body with a gloss Natural finish, active EQ, and maple fretboard with binding and pearl block inlay.

The Marcus Miller model is designed for optimal richness, detail, and articulation, and the stock pickups have plenty of growl and burp, with the top end response accentuated by the maple fretboard. The ash body and Leo Quan Badass II bridge also ensure ample sustain, clear note attack and a complex midrange character. The bass weighs 9lbs 13oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar with 45-100 roundwound strings, comfortable action and accurate intonation.
