Looks like they still sell this model new for about $279.

I'm looking at a used one and does anyone know how long they have made these and any reviews on them?

Its an entry level bass and just an OK one at that. The pickups on it are not that great and sound a bit sterile. The studio that I used to frequent had one as a loaner bass and the neck always seemed to need some sort of adjustment due to fret buzz issues after a few months of play.

On MF reviews--I've never found them particularly helpful since they are usually written right after someone gets an instrument and not months afterwards when real issues with a bass or guitar are apparent. So I'd be careful using them as a guide.
