What's special about this item?

Feature: What it does:
Ash body Strong, snappy responsive tone
Autographed by artist A personal touch; great for fans and collectors
C-shaped neck profile Comfortable, rounded oval shape
Vintage Alnico Jazz Bass single-coil pickup Thick and warm tone, with a modern edge and bite

Marcus Miller has made a name for himself as a top bass player by backing up luminaries like Miles Davis and Luther Vandross, as well as leading a bright solo career. It's no surprise then, that Fender has developed the Marcus Miller Jazz Bass as an instrument primed for any stage.

Gig-Ready Sound and Feel

Sporting a relatively light ash body, the Marcus Miller Jazz Bass is made to give players a comfortable low-end experience. The maple neck is sculpted with a 7.25" radius, making for a slimmed-down profile that enables players to cover plenty of fretboard territory. The neck is topped by a 20-fret maple fretboard with subtle pearl block inlays.

Electronics That Pop

With the ability to switch between active and passive circuitry, this Jazz Bass is clearly designed to cover all the ground a bassist like Marcus Miller requires. Players can instantly toggle between warm passive sounds and sharp, well-defined active sounds depending on their stage or studio needs. The bass is loaded with an American Vintage single-coil Jazz Bass pickup in the bridge position and an American Vintage '75 single-coil Jazz Bass pickup in the bridge. Controls include two master volume and active bass and treble boost/cut knobs.

Built to Stand Out

Marcus Miller is not a bassist content to stay hidden in a band's backline -- and anyone playing his signature bass won't be able to hide, either. With its unique black pickguard shape and maple fretboard with white block inlays, it's read more immediately clear this is a bass like no other.
