I purchased new directly from Bass Central and at the time Beaver Felton remarked that this may have been one of the last Grendels available with the Wenge fretboard. Grendel Basses are hand made in the Czech Republic.
MTD later switched to more economical rosewood and subsequently created the Saratoga and Kingston versions produced in different countries - if I remember correctly.
The hang tag says 34"scale but that relates to 4 string models I guess because this 5 is definitely 35" scale and the B string is strong and pronounced.
