On the new to me Fender Marcus Miller Jazz bass - my G string saddle is bottomed out and action is still too high (about 2mm too high). However, all the other saddles are adjusted to my normal action and in a good range.
This bass comes with a Leo Quan Badass II Bridge as standard.
So…file the saddle or shim the neck?
I put NYXLs on figuring I would give this bass some brightness.
It sure has it.
Finally stock Fender pickups I can leave alone.
The preamp is pretty good too, nice wide range on it.
The only thing I don’t like is there appears to be no tone control in passive mode (that I can hear anyway).
These things tend not to bother me much, positive or negative.
Since I go from sopranino to baritone on sax across a couple different brands/models, I am not as fussy/picky about neck shape, nut width, etc. I am constantly adjusting/readjusting on sax and so I just do the same on bass.
Micro-Tilt is a BIG misnomer.
Macro-Tilt is more like it.
Doesn’t take much and boom, everything is great.
I am really liking all the design choices on this bass.
I get why they ditched the micro-tilt, don’t always need it so why bother, but it is a great feature.
