    Just got this and I love it, but my left hand can't handle the 35" after a few sets...... I'm getting old! :(

    Black Limba body, Myrtle burl top, Wenge neck and board, comes in a super cool MTD case. Sounds amazing! Asking $3300 plus actual shipping, money order or paypal (fee-less transaction) only. I'm not in a rush to sell and the price is firm, low ballers will be ignored!

    Trades? I'm looking for 5ers of the same caliber, would love a Smith Elite or a NYC Sadowsky modern with a fancy top +/- cash depending on what you have.
    Feel free to ask any questions and thanks for looking!!!

    Beautiful. Wish I had a 34"scale to trade you.

    I hear you.
    If I had a 534 MTD I would not play any other 5-string.
    Can't do 35" scale anymore either.

    I'm currently working on a drug called LongXScala, similar to Viagra but it allows old dudes and old dudets the ability to play sick 35 inch scale instruments like they used to back the old days.

    IMO, the 35 scale on 535's is easier to play than most 34 scale instruments, just sayin'

    I don't know if I'd say most but definitely a lot. I think some folks psyche themselves out a bit with the 34" vs 35" thing but hey, you know your body better than I do. :) Bump for a really gorgeous 535. If I had the cash... ;)

    What a coincidence! I'm working on a device called Scale Compressor, with a push-pull button that enables you to go back and forth between 35 and 34 inch scale for MTD basses. It is a fantastic innovation if worked together with FLEXible Bridge to deal with the intonation change.

    However, my current problem is that it has to be powered with thirty-five 9V batteries...as far as I know there's no enough room for them to be installed in a MTD. Maybe Marilyn is the solution?

    ....and bump for a gorgeous MTD, of course. BTW, I ordered a MTD 534 because I love these basses so much but don't feel very much at home on 35" as on other 34"s. Same as the OP.

    Not familiar with black Limba. What does this 535 sound like?
