    This bass is an absolute monster but I'm desiring more of a Fender on steroids tone. Hoping to specifically find a trade for a recent model Sadowsky 5 with an alder body/maple top and pau ferro board. Will consider other brands, but must have those woods with 1 7/8" nut & 19mm spacing. Especially interested in a Will Lee 5, despite the 1 3/4" nut. I do not care for maple boards at all, so I'll pass on those offers.

    Asking $3750, what I paid. A little higher than the typical pre-owned MTD, but this one has custom upgrades. Built December 2010. Excellent condition, not a mark on her.

    3-piece Makore (Cherry Mahogany) body - $4800.00
    2 octave neck- $200.00
    Rose of the Mountain fingerboard- $200
    Luminlay side dots (Glow-in-the-dark activated by LED light provided) Helps to navigate your fretboard on those dark stages!
    "10" Spalted maple top -$700.00
    Matching peghead veneer-$100.00
    Matching truss rod cover-$100.00
    Buzz Feitin tuning system-0.00
    Custom bass case-$400.00

    Total-6500.00

    The tone is open and transparent as you would expect with all MTDs with the Bart package. You can clearly hear the warmth and clean top end from the Makore & Maple, but more even sounding than the typical ash body. The finger board tone is very similar to pau ferro, and stunningly beautiful! I can provide sound samples if required.
