    I have a few basses up for sale, trades are welcome but I'll be very specific. I'm tired of buying/trading/selling basses like crazy, I know what I like and I'll stick to it. I'm posting the sale prices, trade value will be a little higher. I'm only selling one of the 535s, I'll let TB decide which one I'll keep!

    Fodera Emperor BO. This bass is just plain amazing. Ash body, 5A quilted maple top, Maple neck and highly figured Birdseye Maple board with block inlays. This bass is a slap machine and it's super punchy. $6500.

    MTD 535 Norm Stockton Signature. Tulip wood body, Maple burl top, Wenge neck and board. Excellent condition and comes in a MTD case. $3300. GONE!

    MTD 535-24. Rare Avodire body, Maple burl top, Maple neck and Rosewood board. Great condition and comes in a case. $3100. TRADED!!

    MTD 435. Ash body, maple neck and board. Great condition and comes in a case. $2500.

    Brubaker SC5 Custom Fretless. Maple body, quilted Maple top. Maple neck and Ziricote board with lines (amazing!). Bartolini pickups and 3 band preamp. Best fretless bass I've ever played.... $2100.

    Ken Smith CR5. Quilted Maple wings and Maple core. Maple neck and ebony board (beautiful). $2100.

    Ritter Classic 4. Ash body, Maple neck and Ebony board. This is the best 4 banger I've ever player period. Super low action and sounds amazing, I would love to get the same bass but with 5 strings. TRADED!

    DC Olson Custom Reverse. This was 100% hand made in Texas, they're very underrated basses, but it plays and sounds amazing. Ash body, Maple neck, flamed maple board, Villex Jazz pickups and Aguilar OBP3 preamp. $1200, that's less than a assembly line MIA Fender!

    The prices are firm, trade value is a little higher. I'm only interested in 5 string basses like neck thru Smiths, NYC Sadowskys, Ritters and Foderas (I can do 2 or 3 depending on what you have). I might be interested in other high end 5ers with wide string spacing. No 4 bangers please.

    More pics available upon request. Feel free to ask any questions and thanks for looking!

    How did you end up with my old 535? Killer bass that was pretty much like new.

    Wow Rader, that is a collection in itself, is 39 too old to be adopted? Those MTDs are killing me!
