    I thought I would post to see what is out there. Only interested in trades at the moment, and I am not entirely sure I am going to trade it at all.

    Up for trade is an amazing MTD 535 (2039). The bass features an awesome amboyna burl top, makore body, makore neck, and stunning BEM board. Mike pulled out all stops with a MTD world logo, and matching wooden knobs. This bass is truly in perfect condition (can not find a single flaw), I am the original owner, and it has only seen one gig and some studio time. I purchased this from Glenn at Austin Bass Traders (who tends to get some of the best stuff out there).

    I am not sure on weight, but its not too heavy and balances wonderfully. I also have the original MTD case, and all candy.

    What am I looking for is fairly limited. I only want 5 strings, will consider other MTD 535's, MTD Saratogas, or Foderas +/- cash depending. Thats about it, but you never know. I am a sucker for fancy tops and buckeye.

    Mostly, but I am open to other ideas. The worst I can say is no thank you.

    A makore neck is certainly unique for Mike, and I have not seen another one.

    Thanks everyone for the PM's they have all been replied to. Any other takers want to send me an offer?

    You should probably close the thread then. :)
