Chose it and did not regret it

Igor Sedov, 23.01.2018
Introduction
I tried different designs of bass, but the most convenient form for me is the Jazz bass. Original Fender Jazz bass American I cannot afford. Therefore, I was looking for something budgetary, maybe Mexican. Looking through many thematic forums, videos on YouTube and comparing cost, I saw on Thomann?s main page Sire Marcus Miller V7, I was very interested. Reviews and comparisons on the Internet is not so much, and look in the store so in general there was no possibility. The main thing that I noted for myself from the reviews, is that it is much better than its price. The last thing I thought about before buying is the number of strings. Having weighed all the pros and cons, I decided to buy a five-stringed Swamp Ash body with a maple fretboard.

Packaging
Having received the treasured cardboard box with the image of Marcus Miller playing bass, it noted the minimalism of the shipping seals, which among other things very correctly fixed the bass and very well protected it from mechanical damage.

First impressions
The bass looks gorgeous and expensive, glossy varnished surfaces! The neck of the five-string bass is massive, and the bass itself is not the easiest. I checked the setting - everything is perfect, only I adjusted each string in tone (the difference in temperatures during transportation was affected). The strings go through the body by default. The distance between the strings at the bridge is large, almost like in the classical four-string version of Jas Bass. It was very important for me! Two 9V batteries have already been installed, a nice little thing.

Sound
In the passive mode, a good sound, in the best traditions of Fender JB. The string "B" sounds deep and distinct. My friend has a Jazz bass "Flea sig" (Mexican), he just just installed a new set of Ernie Ball strings (by the way, in V7 stand Daddario), it was decided to compare both basses to the Fender Rumble 100 with the same settings. According to our general feelings, Marcus Miller V7 had a more transparent sound. Feelings of playing on it are also excellent. I was pleased to receive congratulations on a good purchase from the owner of the Jazz Bass :)

Preamplifier
The preamp fully copes with its duties in the entire range of its settings. I did not use much for them, but the very fact that you have on board an additional equalizer section with a parametric mid frequency is very pleasant.

The result
Would I buy this bass again? - Yes! Really, funny money is asking for it! You immediately get a good Jazz bass, good strings and a preamplifier. If you want Fender, but are limited in money - it is your choice!

Excellent sound for the price

Olivér, 15.06.2018
I've bought this guitar 2 years ago, I still remember the moment when I opened the box! Its a beautiful instrument, the finish is nicely done for the price. I usually use the instrument at home and in the rehearsal room, it had some gigs too. The quality is decent, but best and most important feature is the SOUND. This instrument has a versatile and amazing sound. You can get out a lot of tones with the variety of knobs. I compared to a few 1-1,5k bass guitars and the sound was only different but not worse. Some sound engeniers were in disbelief that this is a 550 EUR guitar.
The active switch gives such boost, it is unbeatable. I love this guitar ever since I bought it.
Only cons I can mention is the weight and the size. It's a heavy instrument, but hey, at least you have 5 strings!
I don't think any other guitar can beat the MMv7 in this price range!
