**"MTD introduces a handcrafted line of basses manufactured under Michael Tobias' supervision in Prague. Twenty-Five years of bass building experience was drawn upon in the design and production of the new Grendel basses. The result is a bass with MTD's signature playability and sound. Grendel models include many innovative design features like MTD's exclusive bolt-on neck design that are found on MTD's hand-made US models. MTD however does not sacrifice quality for price as these models feature many custom-designed parts by Bartolini, Hipshot, and MTD. MTD Grendel basses feature an ergonomically carved body with a figured Maple top. The bolt-on neck is Eastern Hard Rock Maple with a two octave wenge fingerboard and a relieved neck heel for a "neck-through" feel. The pickups and electronics are custom-made by Bill Bartolini.
The controls have been converted by Mike Lull for 3 band pre with a bypass switch for passive with a tone knob like and old fender jazz. It's cool because you can have a classic jazz sound or a more modern sound. Bartolini jazz pups and pre.
TRADES I WOUD CONSIDER:
AMERICAN FENDER JAZZ 5 STRING
LAKLAND 5 STRING SKYLINE

check ur inbox. thanks for looking
This is a great bass..........I owned for a short while.........just couldn't get used to the 1 7/8 width at the neck. These Barts along with Bart EQ gives a sound that is absolutely incredible!!! Single coil but very quiet!!!
This bass is built just like the American ones...........full 1/2 inch or more tiger-striped maple top. The hardware is all Hipshot...........this is one fine instrument and extremely rare!!!!
PS..........One thing of note that you won't find in most specs of these models...........it is narrower at the last fret than the Korean/Chinese Mtds..............a great improvement in my thinking!!!
still waiting for a reply... but for now it is still available...
Bump for the Cherry Red MTD!
thanks for all your interest. this one is SOLD!!!!
