Millimetric Instruments

I like the idea (not so much the price - yeowzers).  The body shape of the bass is not to my liking but I do like the shape of their single cut guitars, especially the offset one:

I like them.
Got a bit of a Jetsons vibe, no?

"MB4 sound is aiming tones of the 90's noise, such as Shellac and Jesus lizard, etc."

No thanks.

Maybe a bit of a Vox "Paddle bass" vibe....

Good sloppy playing is an art in itself. (Uwe)

Given the US' penchant for archaic measuring systems, this brand certainly won't sell there. "Maxi-Inch Instruments" would likely do better.

That bass looks like a combination Longhorn/Horseshoe Crab. Not that I entirely dislike it but for $2700, I don't know.

I was thinking longhorn 20/20.

"MB4 sound is aiming tones of the 90's noise, such as Shellac and Jesus lizard, etc."

Yeah, I thought that was a poor marketting choice, to narrow it in like that; very niche. 
but if you listen to those bands, the bass tone is good and applicable to other genres.
