    MBasses MJ-5 in Burgundy Mist Metallic w/matching headstock, rosewood board, Nordstrand Single Coils and 2 band preamp.. It's basically mint with the exception of a nick underneath the string tree which has been repaired but is noticeable up close.. I will post a pic of it shortly..
    It will ship in a Pro-Tec case... $2300.00 shipped in the U.S. only...

    It has Nordstrand single coil pickups and 2 band preamp.. Check out some links on youtube if you can .. It's alittle hard for me to describe, but they sound great... I do like the pre better than my Sadowsky...Heres a link to the Nordstrand site for a good description, it's the NJ-5...http://nordstrandpickups.com/bass-pickups/index.shtml

    Pat Wilkins will make it any color you want for a very reasonable price.

    Seems like a great price on this beauty.

    I agree. The pics probably don't do it justice. A tough color to photograph.

    Did Jon build this for you?

    I recently picked up an MJ4 and it is supreme, as good as any of the more popular names in it's field.
