    Talking about the MTD 535 Norm Stockton? Very nice bass.
    What is the significance of "Norm Stockton"? How does this set the bass apart from other MTD 535's?

    I think it's just one he owned...I don't think its a signature model or anything. Although if I had they money (oh wait I do)...If I was a big MTD fan I'd snatch that up in a minute.

    Its just a way to describe the finish- the blueburst with the brownish naturla tint in the middle- everything else is stock MTD- this one is KILLIN!!

    My question exactly... And you're selling it why....? :)
     
  9. I thought MTD did make a "Norm Stockton" model - popular body, flamed top and blue burst finish.

    I played Norm's bass - it's a GREAT instrument! Very light with a very articulate tone.

    Woah, that's really nice. That's as good looking as my MTD. Although if I had they money (oh wait I do)... You know you're not really a fan of a bass until you own like 5 of the same kind and still want more.
     
  14. Adrian, you always get some rad looking MTDs. I wish I had a Norm Stockton one like that one, but I ain't got the fundage for it. Oh wait...I think I do. You think it'd be a good mate for the redwood one?:

    Adrian, can you "lend" it to me for a couple of years? I'll be real careful with it...
