(I have a sale pending but if something goes amiss, grab this rare, rare funk-machine--they rarely ever come up for sale)
I have a MTD 5 string made in the 1990's in the Czech Republic. It has a 35 inch scale; body made with a tiger-striped maple cap (not a veneer) paired with a tulip-wood/alder back? (not sure of the wood used in the back and Mike Tobias said it could be either.)
Fretboard is Wenge........very nice!
It has all Black Hip-shot hardware.........the B tuner is also a De-tuner. The bridge is a Hipshot B.....black over solid brass with 3/4 inch string spacing.
The electronics are Bart 4 band/push-pull mids. Tone control works in active or passive.......via switch. Vol's are stacked.
Layout: Vols, P-tone, Mid's, Stacked Bass/treble.
Installed by Mike Lull........shielding is copper as you might expect.
Pickups are Bart single/coil.
Not a 10--(its almost 15 years old).........has some player wear/finger scuffs, etc. The only real ding/imperfection is where the original stap button was. It has since been moved over to the side. A chip in the paint/maybe dropped,??.......could prob be hidden if the stap button was re-installed there.
Original Retail according to Mike was $1800.00
Looking for a Lakland J type 5 string bass........not too heavy........9 lb ish. or perhaps a Carvin B 50.
