That's a silly question indeed. The marcus miller hands down. Much prettier and better sound with the badass and all.

MIJ is better IMO, custom MIJ anyways

The bass SHOULD cover the bottom end at the very least.

because it looks better, and some people don't like active electronics. why change a battery if you never use the passive side?

then the graphite support rods come in the neck, making it more stable.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

Where can you find a Marcus for the price of a Standard?! They're about double the price.


On GAK, the Marcus is cheaper than the new Standards.

Un-bloody-fortunately, the 5 string Miller is pretty much double the price of the 4. Damn me and my expensive tastes.

If you don't like active electronics, ash bodies, or maple fingerboards (i.e. bright basses) the MM is not the choice for you. The new MIAs with those fantastic graphite necks are great and are strung through the body. With a purchase like this you really have to try them out. I'm not giving the MM a hands-down win as they're different enough to warrant extensive playtesting.

And MIJ>MIA may be correct. Too bad they stopped making MIJ basses in the early 90's. If you really think CIJ basses beat MIA, you're nuts, and/or haven't played any of them. However, I like to say that Japan makes "strange" instruments - different issues of certain basses, or normal basses with extensive modifications. There's no bass that both CIJ and MIA make to compare them.

I was looking at a used Warwick Vampyre LTD 5'er for about $200. I went home to grab my wallet and came back and some jerk with an epic beard got it already..
