    I've seen these MB-5s pop up on eBay from time to time on the cheap. I never thought much of them but then I spotted one modded with active soapbar pickups and I began to wonder...hmmmm...

    Now I'm not talking about the current Squire MB-5 made in Korea but rather the Fender Japanese ones made in the 90s. Cool? Crap? So so? Anyone?
