Faultless.

09.11.2015
I ordered the bass through Thomann and it arrived a week later in perfect order, well boxed, in tune and playable straight away. The chrome pick up cover and two allen keys were also included. The bass weighs 4.25kg (9.3lb) and it balances well enough and looks terrific. The fit and finish are faultless and the body has the appearance of one piece of wood (although that seems unlikely).

I used it in rehearsal that evening and in a gig the following night. The sound is excellent; it has that typical Jazz tone with that hint of grit when the two pick ups are blended. I had no trouble cutting through the mix and it was comfortable to play over a 2.5 hour set.

These are exceptional basses and I do agree with others who have said they are a "game changer" however for me the inevitable negative concerns the knobs. There are 5 of them and two are stacked. There is also a mini switch for active/passive. These controls are close together, cluttered and fiddly. And they are rather raised which is a little ungainly and could be prone to damage. This array does however offer fantastic control and the pre-amp provides a very wide range of sounds to the extent that if max'd it would be too much. I recently purchased a Fender American De-luxe Dimension and the scope of sounds offered by that £1,400 bass are embarrassed by those available on this £280 Sire! The tuners are fine, no problems, although they are not they best and I like the bridge, which is good and solid with the option of through body stringing.

This would be a good bass at any price, but at less than £300, I think it is fantastic value.

I have to give this FIVE stars, I would like to give it TEN

16.10.2015
I have owned many guitars, played even more. I have never owned a better bass instrument than this. For value, playability, construction, finish and sound this is the best purchase I have ever made.
That's a bold statement, I know, but compared to leading brands I have owned or played, the Marcus Miller is simply outstanding!
I researched many, many brands in the sub-£500 category and settled on this newcomer from Sire/Marcus Miller.
I am so pleased I chose this guitar, there is nothing negative to mention.
If you are searching too, I encourage you to choose anything from this brand, you will not be disappointed. Forget anything else up £1k, even £1.5k - this MM will knock them for six.
My only regret....I really wish I had the Swamp Ash version to compare the two!

Be bold and take the gamble on this relative newcomer and you'll be very, very pleased.

I don't work for them, nor Thomann, I'm just a customer from England who now owns an awesome bass guitar.
