I found a used Fender (not Squier) MB-4 Bass for sale. Made in Japan. I've never heard of these before. It's in pretty good shape. I'm trying to find out about this model...the history, quality, desireability, etc. I have an MIM Jazz but I might be able to get a good deal on the MB-4. Are they a good bass? Thanks.

They were Fender's attempt to make a 'Spector-style' bass. Since it was made in the same factory as all the other MIJ basses of that time, fit and finish should be pretty good, and I think that model has the tri-laminated neck (three pieces).
Resale is notso good. I've seen guys ask on Ebay for $599 or so, and not get it. $325 would be decent price.
