An awesome product for the price

Khaladryel, 06.02.2019
This is the second bass guitar that I buy. After a basic but reliable cheap bass, I wanted something with a little bit more power and boy oh boy, was I surprised.

The Marcus Miller P7 2nd Gen it's one of the best purchases I've done in my life. From the wood finishes to the quality of the pickups this thing is amazing.

The sound in the passive mode it's already a great one, but when you add the pre amp, this thing can compete with basses in the range of the thousand euros. Everyone that hears it is blown away by it.

You can get great tones combining both pickups and the pre amp.

The only con that I would give this bass is the quality of the knobs. They are made of plastic and give a sensation of being too cheap. But this is an easy fix, one I made the first day I got this. (I changed them for chrome metal knobs and they look fantastic).

Overall, this is an amazing guitar for both a professional player or just an amateur. The price of it makes it good for everyone.

(Not quite so) Glanzst in his price segment

Josef Dornbacher, 14.12.2018
First praise to Thomann for his - understaffed - customer-oriented pricing policy: I got after a replacement, the second generation of Marcus Miller P7 for the price of the first. Thanks a lot for this!

Now for the bass: In the price segment between 400.00 and 600.00 euros seems to me the selection of basses (especially with modern electrical system) quite thin, so that it is nice, with the Marcus Miller bass on the whole very decent Devices to choose from. The processing on the P7 is consistently good, and the sound - even with the preamplifier off - versatile. A little annoying are - as with the 1st Gen. - The Potiknöpfe, because the Doppelpotis rotate and the Potis are too smooth overall.

I had the P7 of the 1st Gen. unfortunately have to exchange because of a defective Halstelltstellstabs. I'm a bit sad for the first gene. now after, because me the second gene. seems to have shown some improvements: First there is the battery compartment. The 1st Gen. had two compartments that could be opened without tools. The 2nd Gen. has a big, hidden under an ugly bolted real wood panel, which incidentally is the same for all finishes (AW, TS, BL).
Furthermore, the neck was the 1st Gen. gloss coated, while the 2nd Gen. has a satin finish (but that's a matter of taste).
A real problem (see ADDENDUM), which may have to do with the new battery compartment and me in the 1st Gen. The body of the P7 is very light, because of the normal-sized headstock and the classic tuners, the bass is always sad with the head down, if you do not actively against it. The 1st Gen. was, if I remember correctly, also quite light, but not so top-heavy.
The rounded fingerboard and the larger scale of the 2nd Gen. are in contrast m. E. a real improvement. (Also, my copy of the 1st Gen had some factory paint defects, whereas the paint of my current bass is tadelos.)
A comparison of the features of the 1st and 2nd Gen. By the way, there is the Sire website.

Finally, I must point out that the P7 factory seems to be delivered without any neck curvature and therefore, if one does not know how to help, must expect Bundschnarren without end. At least the two models that I had in my hands were practically not playable without readjusting.

Overall, the Marcus Miller P7 2nd generation is a good bass in decent workmanship and with a great variety of sounds.

ADDENDUM: The reason for the top-heaviness has been clarified: The body of the P7 is "chambered". There you have m. E. at the (wrong) end, because it affects the sound as well as the playability negatively. The electronics of the P7 make a whole lot of sounds, but when you play unreinforced, you realize that somewhere something is missing (as it turned out: in the truest sense of the word). If you think that Sire advertise on their website with the material of the corpus (alder), then this can make one annoying, even if the bass itself is not so much of it. From me the Marcus Miller P7 (2nd Gen.) gets only three and a half stars.
