Hi All This MTD bass has served me well; however, it sits in my room untouched. It is strung with DR Fat Beams and set up with low action by myself. This bass plays great and is good for someone interested in geting a 5-string cheap! It has no mods and is pre Buzz Feiten. I have a brand new case(paid $120) included in the deal. The pickguard is tortoise shell. The pics don't show it. On eBAy Item#: 7346309827 Please contact me for questions.
