Gear Watch: M Basses Mj-4 and Mj-5
M Basses has officially released their Mj-4 and Mj-5 models, which are 4 and 5-string versions of a “vintage-inspired” bass with customizable features.
The M bass body comes standard with a choice of either a swamp ash or alder body, maple neck and an Indian rosewood fingerboard.
The Mj-4 carries 20 frets while the 5-string has 21, though both have a 34″ scale. The basses also come standard with either Nordstrand or Aguilar single coil pickups. A hipshot vintage bridge and ultra light tuning keys round out the hardware on the Mj-4. Both models are made by hand.
The Mj-4 and Mj-5 are available starting at $2,650 and $2,750 respectively, with the option to upgrade.
