    New thread for trade only. Not sure if I want to do this yet but I have an R bass Jazz modern 5 in excellent condition. It's a killer jazz. Best part of this jazz bass that puts it apart from the rest is that not a SINGLE note is thin sounding. This bass is beefy on every string. something that bothers me was drastic differences in timbre and volume between strings, but not this bass! I've had 35" scale basses but this bass has the best B string by far. Very low action with the 33" scale makes it a pleasure to play. Reminds me of the 33" Foderas. This bass is absolutely beautiful, plays extremely well, and sounds both musical and thunderous - it's the complete package!


    Ash Body
    Majo Top
    Mahogany tone layer
    Delano Jazz pickups (Super clean and quiet!)
    Aguilar OBP-3 w/ passive tone control and push/pull mid freq
    33" maple neck w/ majo binding and dots
    Majo headstock veneer with abalone inlay
    Black hipshot hardware
    Brass nut

    Trade value is $2650

    Trades i would be interested in are:

    #1. USA MTD 535 or 635 (cash from me)

    #2. Nordy VJ5 (Classic or Modern) +/- cash depending on what you have

    I play worship. Is this working for you at your service or are you just looking to up grade?.

    I don't think it would be an 'upgrade' if I switched to an MTD or Nordy, just something different.
    This works perfectly for our services, I'm just looking for an MTD because I met Mike T. at NAMM and it doesn't help when my favorite bassists are Andrew Gouche and Norm Stockton!

    Have you ever played a Fbass? I'm selling or trading my because of medical reason. My son is looking for a short scale bass.

    You know you're not playing your USA MTD. Give her to a good home!
