    I have a MTD 535 in excellent condition. I wanted a Norm Stockton bass built with the same pickups and hardware in his MTD's era (#482) but something with fuller mids than the poplar body he has on his, and this was the answer. Since this is a older MTD, it has the Bartolini's that have the pre amps built into the pickups (active pick ups) and is warmer than the newer passive barts the MTD's now have.

    This bass is in equally good shape as my MTD 635 that I just sold (#2229), if not better

    Specs:
    Myrtle Burl top (insane figuring on this one!)
    Mahogany Body
    Wenge Neck
    Wenge board
    Wenge laminate between top and body!
    MTD Bartolini pre and pups
    MTD hardshell case

    What is the nut width, string spacing at the bridge, and scale length?

    I assume it's 1 7/8", 19mm spacing, and 35" scale?

    I believe so. Standard MTD lengths.

    Nice bases. Unique wood combination with the mahogany body and wenge neck. Any chance of posting a sound clip?

    The older MTDs electronics are where it's at. Same for the older wenge necks.

    I would really like some sound clips of this 535. A simple iPhone recording would be good enough. Thanks.
