    Got my eye on one, guy wants $200, but I'm not sure about the value. Says its an early 90's MIJ MB-4 in good shape with a few scuffs and nicks.

    I have no information from the bass itself like a serial number or anything.

    I haven't played it yet, but I'm going to set something up to play it. I've read good things about this bass in the late 80's and early 90's - if its in good shape is $200 a fair price?
     
  2. I had the 5er. Great base IMHO. I would have kept it if the string spacing wasn't so close :( $200 seems fair. If you buy it and don't like it, shoot me a PM :)

    well, I kinda surprised/worried about the lack of responses. I was hoping to see some "Oh yea, those are great basses" but no one is really going there :)

    I'll probably pass on it, guy has another potential buyer coming to check it out tomorrow and will call me if they don't get a sale.

    Just a follow-up to this - I played this bass last night at the guys house and was very pleasantly surprised. Its SUPER light and not a full 34" scale. Body is smaller than most basses. Neck is nice and thin, action on this bass was good and string spacing was very comfortable.

    I'm buying it - I really didn't expect to like it, but it sounded good and played good and addressed my issues with my p-bass (neck thickness and string spacing).

    I'll post up some pics once I pick it up tonight :)

    Picked it up last night - love the tone it has, just needs some new strings!
