    Well $9000USD seems about right for a one off Fender Custom Shop "masterbuilt bass" (at least their retails for one of basses start at around $6000 IIRC). However at a guess I would say its probably a mock up of the MM4 jazz bass built for Marcus to test out of "parts". Ie the real "unique" part of the MM4 bass is the neck and electronics. The body is pretty bog standard, so if you are making a proto for Marcus to test out before production of the bass starts, you would probably just custom replicate the neck of a MM4 and give it to Marcus to test boldted on to any JB body. I'd guess and say that this bass represents that mocked up neck.
