Marcus Miller’s combination of soulful groove and astounding technical ability has made him one of the jazz world’s preeminent virtuoso bassists.
Fender’s stylish five-string Marcus Miller Jazz Bass V guitar is soulful and astounding, too. It has an ash body, distinctive black pickguard/control plate, and one-piece C-shaped maple neck with a 7.25”-radius maple fingerboard featuring white binding, white pearl block inlays, Posiflex™ graphite neck support rods, and a satin finish (gloss finish on the headstock, plus Miller’s signature). Tonal magic comes from a pair of custom vintage-style Jazz Bass single-coil pickups and an 18-volt active preamp; the two-band active EQ has an active/passive mini-toggle switch. Other features include a chrome neck pickup cover, knurled chrome dome knobs on the volume controls and black Jazz Bass knobs on the tone controls, contoured heel and assymetrical five-bolt neck plate.
