emailing with a guy who wants to trade his 3 yr old, MP Level 5 w/ bart x5 pups and 3 band pre, white (meh), w/cocobollo frtbrd, for my 3 yr old, Sray 5 honeyburst, w/HSC. I am looking for a good jazz-style 5 and he wants an sray 5. Both are priced to sell at 9 bills so it would be an even trade. Anybody got any background with the MP basses? Not real familiar with them myself, but looks interesting. Thanks, ernie.
