    NOT a feeler - this is for sale! (or maybe a trade)
    :D

    brand new MTD Heir 5 bass. It's the brand new one with an all Ash body (flame maple top, i think) and 3-band active electronics.
    Cherry-flame finish and Rosewood fingerboard. Maple neck.

    I like my other MTD Heir 5 so much (older model) that I decided to order the new one from Bass Central. It was drop-shipped to me directly from the US distributor in L.A. and it arrived earlier this morning.

    However, although i LOVE this bass, it took 8 days to get here (although they promised 1 day) and during that time i found a killer local deal on something else that i just couldn't pass on, and now i have to sell something. I still need a new cab, so i will have to sacrifice the new MTD. Also, i've got some car repairs that turned out to be more expensive than i thought...

    anyhoo,
    i paid $649 + $40 shipping and drop-ship surcharge.
    i'm thinking someone could save $50 and buy this from me for $600 plus shipping? (OBO)

    I played it for 2 minutes at most.

    I will try to have better quality pix by tomorrow... sorry about the low-light blurriness... i'm not a photographer!

    thanks!

    oh, almost forgot, i would be interested in trades for a 1x12 or 2x10 cab, BUT i would have to get at least SOME cash out of this deal.

    the hardware is designed by Hipshot,
    and the pickups/electronics designed by Bartolini.

    thank you for your random act of kindness!
     
  7. How would you describe this baby, meaning, is it comparable in sound to say a Lakland 55-02? (ie:it does a nice Jazz Bass, does a nice MM...etc) I may be interested....I'll PM you.

    obviously not as nice as a 55-02 (at half the price) but it gives it a run for its money in the construction and finish department.
    seriously, the construction on this is something to behold.

    as for sound, to my ears, the MTD does a better MM Stingray, but the 55-02 does the fender-ish sound better.


    and thanks for the PM.
