    *For sale only, no trade interest. Thanks*

    Up for sale is a beautiful example of an MTD 535. I just acquired it about a month ago and although it's a spectacular instrument, I'm just not a 5 string guy.. I keep trying to fool myself into it for some reason.. lol

    This is a great bass. It's in absolutely mint condition. There is not a single scratch or mark anywhere on the entire instrument As with all of Michael's basses, the build quality is exceptional and it plays like butter. Low action, no buzzing anywhere. Sounds great.
    Has an awesome burled maple top, on an Alder body. Maple neck and fretboard. 21 frets. Bartolini pickups and preamp. Has a brand new set of Lakland strings on it and ships in original ultralite MTD case.
    This bass new would likely sell for over $5000.
    Paid $3750 last month, only played it a couple times.

    Looking to get $3250 shipped (US and Canada)

    That is a killer deal for a bass like this.

    Weighs in at 8.6lb on my digital bathroom scale that I've always found quite accurate.
    Balances very nicely on a strap.

    I have one of these. They are unreal. Best all around bass I own. Tone, balance, fretwork, great B string, perfect weight
