    Howdy,

    FOR SALE ONLY. - No trades! Sorry.

    I have a few things coming along that I want to fund, an FBass BN5 and a Fodera.

    I need to let this lady go. :atoz:

    Options:

    535-24 - 35" scale
    Highly figured Buckeye Burl top. (lots of blue/gray)
    Matching head stock and truss cover.
    Ash Body.
    Ash Neck.
    Highly figured Birdseye maple FB. (Amazing in person)
    MTD world logo.


    Only one small ding on the head stock, nothing noticeable, frets show minimal ware and the pickups have that sheen that MTD pups get from being played. This is thing has sustain for days, the low B rings out like no other bass I have had and it has very aggressive voice that has no trouble cutting through the mix in either slap or fingerstyle. A real stunner!

    Retailed around $5750 in '07 ~ '08. Willing to let her go @ $3600 OBO shipped.

    Aggressive and very cutting, it looks like it would have an elegant voice.. But, it's nasty..

    I fiddled around with a wenge/wenge and and ash/maple and I just really fell in love with the finger style presence that the ash/maple neck has the highs (especially when plucking) are very similar to the wenge/wenge.

    No, not at all.

    It gives it an interesting way of cutting through the mix. The mids and lows really cut through.
