I recently obtained this Crafted in Japan MM bass as part of a trade here on TB. I'm not exactly sure if I can warm up to it because I am more used to regular old Fender passive basses. The neck on this is really beautiful and comfortable. The inlays on maple are elegant, but at the same time are not as flashy as black blocks on maple. The wood on the ash body is equally beautiful!
Would be looking for a MIA Jazz or Precision. Also open to other types of basses, if you are interested (just shoot me a PM!)

A pic of it without a pickguard to show the ash (I dig this look!):
