    This mid-90's MIJ Fender MB-5 5-String bass guitar is Used but in Good Condition.
    It has some finish nicks, scuffs and surface wear from normal use (some of them have been touched up) but no major dings or dents. The previous owner scratched out the "Made In Japan" and serial number off the back of the neck (see photos). The back of the neck has some thumb/nail wear (surface level only), the fingerboard was cleaned and oiled, the frets were polished and are in excellent condition (no string wear, grooves or flat spots). The bass was just setup with some Ernie Ball Slinky roundwound 45-130 strings with low action (truss rod and saddle screws all turn smoothly). A non-original gig bag is included.
