review After 4 years

Already 4 years since I bought it.
Awesome bass! You get so much sounds options that you will never get bored.
It's a 35" scale bass so remember to buy the appropriate extra-long strings for it. (For me work best the Sadowsky Blue Label SBS 45 XL stainless steel).
the neck is affected a bit by temperature changes even if it has neck reinforcement rods.

Tuners are OK.
I use play drop tuner (ADGCF) and it stay on tune and notes are clear
The confort and feeling are great (4 out of 5).

You can choose to play with string through body or on top (It makes a small difference on sound)
top load is a bit more warner and through body is a bit more punchier.

Esthetically i dont like the Marcus Miller name on the headstock.

Cool additional features: by opening the rear panel there is a small knob where you can select the how much output you like in active mode.
bridge is 18mm string spacing but you can adjust it a bit.

Definitely you will have to do a good set up and maybe a fret leveling when getting this bass if you like very low action.

String/pickup/wood/nut material choice are well balanced with no volume spikes when playing and recording.

EQ advise boost low, cut 1khz mid and boost high.

careful when you adjust the truss rod...If you strip it will need to remove the fretboard completely to replace it.

The output jack needed to be replaced after one year. ( get a Switchcraft Panel Mount 1/4” TRS Jack BK).

to conclude ... difficult to find a better bass for the price. Maybe a custom one?


Awesome bass

This bass is so versatile and sits well with any genre that I play.

For me, there's nothing more awesome sounding bass at this price point.


Great Workhorse Bass - Amazing Value

I love this bass. So much bang-for-buck. Very nice ebony fretboard and polished frets with smooth rounded ends - super comfortable to play. If you take the time to dial in your tone you can get just about any sound out of this. Two humbuckers with individual toggles can be run in series, parallel, or in single-coil mode. Combined with the active/passive switch gives a massive amount of tonal versatility. Can string through body or bridge. Bridge is heavy and high quality. Body and finish are gorgeous. 100% satisfied.


High-end bass at a reasonable price!

The MM M7 5 string is an excellent choice for a bassist looking to get a more professional quality instrument without breaking the bank. The sound is excellent. The humbucker pickups provide a clear sound without any buzz. The 35" scale really helps provide the necessary tension for the low B string that most 34" scale basses can't provide. Setup was almost perfect out of the box. I had to make a very slight adjustment for the intonation, but that took less than 5 minutes. Weight isn't an issue. I would say it's not the lightest bass I've played, but it's also not the heaviest. It's comfortable to me. It also seems to be balanced well as I haven't had any neck dive. The EQ and pickup settings provide for lots of different sound options. I would say this bass is suitable for any type of music. The neck plays well and is pretty fast. The transparent blue finish is gorgeous! I haven't found any flaws in the appearance. The only thing I have see is some of the plastic knobs are a bit crooked, and I don't know if it's because of the knobs themselves or the shaft on the control pot. However, they are very well secured and provide no difficulty of use when using them to adjust the pickups or the EQ. There's certainly not enough for me to reduce a star.

Overall, this is a VERY good bass that I would highly recommend.
