    Hi all, I'm a noob at posting, but browse TB about every day. This is my first attempt at a listing, so here goes.



    Up for sale is my MTD ZX-5 35" scale 24 fret 19mm nut spacing bartolini pickups and preamp, passive/active push pull on volume, pickup blend knob 3 band eq with pull mid freq...approx 7lbs comes with a body glove gig bag $1500 obo.(we'll discuss shipping) This bass has been well taken care of, a couple of times by Mike himself, it has a professional setup and a neat history! I actually got this bass from Perry Richardson of the hair band Firehouse! Gotta get rid of this one to make room for a new build so Pm me for more info!

    I do believe that is a 35" scale bass unless modified.

    While some may balk at import basses in this price range...I own a similar bass and these are really special basses! GLWTS

    Pics of any cosmetic damage would be great. The other pics arent clear enough to see much. The color makes it hard to get good pictures. How old is it?

    nothing on it that i would really call a flaw or blemish...judging by the serial number it's an 2008 model, maybe an MTD guru can offer some clarification
