    I don't need anything right now, but if you have something that's not expensive and are putting mostly cash towards it then possibly ..

    This is a truly hand made bass, not machine made and assembled with a hefty price tag. Jon is still crafting basses in the old world tradition. Know what you have, Good Wood.

    I totally agree and I have 3 other MBasses that aren't going anywhere... Jon builds a great bass !!! My local guitar tech is not somebody who is easily impressed, but he was with my MBasses..

    Great video. I'm fortunate to own to of JOn's basses, an MP4 and MJ4. Both are outstanding builds, light and handcrafted, He's a great guy and builder who cares about the details. I've also been lucky to visit his shop twice, once for a custom pickguard fitting As fine a bass as I've ever owned. You can't go wrong with one of jon's basses and this one is a beauty. GLWTS
