Marcus Miller V7 Alder-4 LPB 2nd Gen
René B, 24.12.2019
This Marcus Miller V7 Alder-4 LPB 2nd Gen bass guitar recently purchased as a backup bass. After the fast delivery by Thomann the well-packed bass I had first admired its appearance. Unbelievable what a very well finished bass! just perfect in every way. Beautiful body color and matching headstock. The strings were a little on the high side for me, but that is personal. After a small adjustment, the bass is connected to my bass amplifier. What a great sound comes from this bass! Thanks to the extensive pre-amp very many setting possibilities and thus producing any desired sound. On the internet you can find many difference tests between this bass and the much more expensive Fender Jazz basses with no or hardly any difference. I myself have had many Fender Jazz and Precision basses in the past but this Marcus Miller V7 is the winner in my opinion. The only thing I didn't really like are those plactic black buttons, which I immediately replaced with a few nice chrome buttons. All in all a big 10 for this bass and I am very happy with it myself. I can hardly wait until the next performance with my band and I will use it immediately.

Best Jazz Bass For The Money
Bassface1, 19.04.2021
I was looking to buy an active bass, with a preference for a J style bass. I need it for live gigs. The rolled fretboard edges on the Gen 2 models really piqued my interest. I looked far and wide and can't find anything that sounds, looks or feels this good at this price point. It is unreal value for what you get. Its quality cannot be argued with at this price it feels and plays like a €1K plus bass. Pick ups sound great. Fair enough, it might not be as well finished as a custom shop Fender but for this money it is an unbeatable value package. The only thing I'd see as a negative is the paint had a tiny blemish on the side where no one can even see.

V7 bass 2nd gen
Kon Spil , 21.08.2019
Hey there !

This bass is very worthy for his price . The pickups, the EQ , neck, fingerboard, body , nut are just great . You have a quality bass with quality sound ! A negative and important thing is the weigh that this bass has (mine :4,6 kg ) . For me that i almost play every day and usual play 3-4 hours its heavy and cant take with me in the most of gigs ! The second problem i have is that the bass came to me with defective(problematic) bridge pickup , thats why i must send it back .

Apart from these , a positive is that they are great for recording too :)

That's from me !

Amazed by this bass - it does wonders
njekk, 30.08.2019
After one week of using this bass, I'm so happy I bought it. It's so versatile, it's crazy - the pre-amp does wonders, and the passive mode is really good too. For the price I think it's the best bass you can buy, I used Fender basses before but this bass feels better in hands, and the sound it produces is almost/if not the same as in the Fender bass. The only downside is the weight of this beauty, it's pretty heavy, but I guess you get used to it after some time. I'll definitely be using this bass for a long time, for gigging, recording and practicing. I really recommend it to anyone, beginners and professionals.
