Discussion in 'For Sale: Bass Guitars' started by PastorofMuppets, Sep 29, 2010.

  1. SOLD

    I do apologize. Sale is Pending....

    This is a Grendel Bass by MTD FS

    [DEL]35" Scale 4 String[/DEL]

    Wenge Fingerboard

    Bartolini Jazz style pickups. I am unsure what exact model of electronics is in this bass but Ive been told it was made especially for this bass for MTD by Bartolini.

    zero fret

    I have generic hard shell case for it that I will sell with the bass
    for $350 or just the bass for 300.00 Its up to you!

    There are only a couple minor blemishes on the bass. Its in great shape.

    I can do paypal. I have a verified address.
    CONUS & Canada only.

    Shipping is not included. I am not sure what the cost is for shipping but it is negotiable.

    I would be interested in discussing a trade of a tech21 VT bass pedal plus some money if anyone is open to that.

    This is my first for sale post on TB but I do have a 100% feedback rating on Ebay see pastorofmuppets03

    More pics upon request.

    Is that a solid finish or flake finish, I can't really tell (bad vision).
  4. Still available.
    Also going on ebay today.

    This is a great bass. Less than 400 for this bass is a steal IMO.
    Asking 300 for bass only or 350 for bass and case. Plus 20-30 for shipping.

    Please see this link for pics:

    Never played a 35". What's that like? Anyone feel free to chime in.

    Depending on what you're used to playing you might not notice any difference. If, for example, you play Warwicks you will probably be used to reaching a bit further to get to a low F. You'll notice more of a difference if you're used to playing Fender-style instruments (with upper horns that reach as far as the twelfth fret) but even then, I don't find the extra inch to be much of an issue. I've played plenty of basses where I honestly couldn't tell if they were 34" or 35".

    i offer you 500dollar shipped to Belgium. But you dont ship it.. do you ? (i respect your statement, but i can just try..)

    Did you all know that Gail Ann Dorsey owns 3 of them.. ?
    Did you all know that this is a 'must have' bass ?
    Did you all know that these early Grendels are sought after ?

    The 'MTD' Grendels arent as good as these pre-MTD ones.

    It amazes me that this is the second one on e-bay at the moment and there isnt hardly any intrest in buying them.

    I'll have a few someday, a 4- and a 5 -string, and they would make a great pair with my basses that are 10 times more expensive !

    Thx for the info.
  10. The scale is 34"
    I didnt measure until last night. My friend told me it was 35" and it felt that way.
    I was wrong not to do that.

    I own 2 Grendels. A 2001 and an older one. The older one just like the picture above is only 34" scale. The newer one is 35" scale. I was under the impression the older ones were 34" scale. I didn't know until i measured it myself.
  12. it was an honest mistake.

    I sincerely apologize for misleading anyone.
    It was not my intention.

    The bass was bought last night on ebay.
    I may have to refund the money since I was wrong on the scale.
  13. If there is any problems with the ebay deal I will drive to your house and pay you cash for it.
