Along with my Sadowsky I am also selling my MTD-535 "Marilyn". These are incredibly hard to come by and Mike T often says he's going to stop making them (although I believe you can still order one if you ask nicely!).
MTD 535-21 "Marilyn" #34
Chambered Alder Body
Amazing figured walnut top
Wenge neck (beautiful closed grain with deep chocolate colour)
Birdseye maple fingerboard (deed caramel colour)
Matching walnut headstock
MTD "The World" logo
Standard MTD exclusive bart pickups and preamp
Wegith: 4.2kg (according to my digital scales)
MTD Original hardshell case (its the older MTD model without the hydrometer but with the MTD logo). I have a newer MTD with the new case. If you really want the new case I can include that one, but the shipping is going to cost more since the new cases weigh a ton. If you plan on gigging with it you can forget about taking the new case, its just too heavy! (Not that the older style is light, its also a very robust case).
MTD build time at the moment varies between about 9 months and 18 months. Marilyns tend to take about 18 because of the extra work involved in the chambering. The selling price on this bass now would be over $5500USD plus shipping & VAT (assuming you could order one).
Its in excellent condition. There is one or two small dings on the body, including one on the front under the bridge pickup, but they are not particuarly deep and only noticeable when you look for them.
As with my Sadowsky the bass could do with a setup. I can arrange it and have built the cost of doing so into the price. If you are happy to take it without the setup you can take £50 off the price.
Asking price is: £2700 inc shipping and insurance within the UK. No trades.
International: Let me know where you re located and I will give you an estimate for shipping.
I am in London, so local pickup would save on the shipping costs!
Paypal is okay. Cash or direct deposit is preferred.
