Now this is a serious bass.
pika69, 01.12.2020
Having started playing bass 10 years ago, I decided to buy this bass because i wanted step up my career to a more professional level, and i needed a good (not decent, good) instument. Having it for more than a year for now, I`ve done multiple professional recordings, tens of demos and home recordings, and a gig with my band every week (more than 100 gigs already). What can i say, the bass is comparable to those pro basses costing $1000 and more, its just that good. Always sounding solid and clear, punchy and cutting through the mix when i need it to, mellow and warm when i want it to sound so. It just plays so responsive, thats what distincts a pro instrument from beginner or mid-level instrument, the responsiveness. It just does what you need it to do. What you put into it, it gives you back thru the amp.

Really if I have to name a cons of this bass, the only thing i would say is a weight, thou its a 5-string Jazz, what should I have expected? A lightweight 5-string with a slim fast neck and super-contoured body? Go buy yourself an Ibanez then!)) Although weight of the V7 varies slightly from bass to bass, mine was about 4,2 Kg. A bit on a heavy side for me. To be honest, first 2 months after getting this bass I seriously considered selling it because by back was really problematic. But then i decided to go to gym to fix my health issues, and strenghten my back muscles, and bought myself a wide (like, 3 or 3,5 inch wide) strap, and the problem was gone.

The looks, feel, usability and playability of this bass are great. Preamp gives you a lot of flexibility, too. I could not want anything better, really. I dont even speak about the money, its just good Jazz bass, Im not shy to go to any gig with it. Highly recommend to anybody who wants a versatile pro-grade instrument.

Quality made affordable
MMichelin, 26.04.2020
Curiosity and the need of a secondary bass made me buy this guy here. I own a german 1999 Warwick streamer lx 5 strings which is Delicious to my ears and hands.
The Marcus Miller was beautifully set up right out from the box; the neck is so smooth and comfy, the finish and the hard-ware are just excellent.
The sound: Superb! One can play every possible type of music on this guitar. The preamp section is so complex and you can dial in a beautiful sound in seconds. Is sounds so beautiful both active and passive.
The only con here(which is...smallish) : when in single coil mode, you get a broom.
Nice job, Sire!
Later edit: after all you get what you pay for. I ended up playing warwick, MM sounds helpless compared to mid quality warwicks...and it is way too heavy.

huge bang for your buck
critic-al , 17.02.2021
I honestly cannot get over how much bass you get for your money with this one. The neck is gorgeous, the preamp is powerful and the overall composition and construction feels like it should cost a lot more than it does.

Definitely needs a set up out of the box and I'll likely swap out the tuners and machine heads in the future.
