    Impeccable 5-String Bass Perfection! Modern Vintage folks careful attention to fine details that matter the most make all the difference! Absolutely killer bass tones! Gorgeous instrument in every way!
    I’ve played a variety of great vintage basses with the band projects I’m working with currently and my MVJ5 is the only bass , since I’ve started bring it out, that everyone keeps requesting I use.
    Dave @ Club Bass and Guitar = what can I say ? The guy knows bass! If you are looking for a 5-string bass that plays and sounds like it should you owe it to yourself to try one!
