    damn that's an interesting history!! from what I gather, the bass could be that "standard", since he never mentioned anything else being built in japan before they moved to Nashville.. So there is a possiblity the bass you're looking at is 1 of only 400 ;) built prior to 1992

    Standard. Don't actually know a fair price, they're pretty rare, but on the other hand not actually made by MT's crew. See them on Ebay now and again, but usually someone's trying to pass one off as a US model so it's tough to guess a fair value.

    I have no idea what the last "0" would be for. Maybe this is a Toby Pro???


    Just guessing,
