Marcus Miller Collection
Several years ago I decided against using my primary bass on tour. In an effort to remain consistent, I began to acquire vintage Fender Jazz Basses to use during performances.

I was fortunate to find several great instruments.

Through this process we amassed a wonderful collection of instruments, in fact too many for me to play frequently.

Also, I am please to be nominated an “Artist for Peace” by UNSECO. Through this appointment I will support UNESCO’s Slave Route Project and promote peace, dialogue, and unity through jazz.

I have decided to sell a part of my collection, in conjunction with Rudy’s Music on the famous 48th Street Music Row.

Proceeds from this sale will go to support my UNSECO project.

Each bass is accompanied with a personal signed letter of authenticity. As you will see each bass has its own history and character. These are great instruments in which you will enjoy as a player and benefit from their outstanding collectability.

Thank you for your support.

Ken Smith Bass 6 String
Mirado Top and Back with Walnut Center Serial Number 1179994MMW

Subject:  Letter of Authenticity

Dear Bass Owner:

The above referenced bass was owned by my company and recording label.

This is a rare and beautiful instrument that features a wonderful deep and rich sound.   It surely will serve you well in the studio and during live performances.

It is in mint condition and will increase its collection value over the years to come.

My business partner Harold Goode originally owned this bass.  The bass was utilized in our studio for parts best performed on a six string.

The bass is built special with a wide neck width and a thicker body. This gives this instrument a unique depth and clarity.

This beautiful instrument has been utilized on the Ken Smith bass advertisements for years.

Please enjoy, I will miss the instrument and wish you continued success.

All the best.

Marcus Miller
