    So here it is my macassar top, maple body, and ash neck 535. This is probably the best sounding bass I have ever heard. It is amazing. The pictures are taken by the store owner, and I am sure you have seen this bass if you were ever trolling for an mtd. But here it is (now I have to figure out how to put pics in) (second post to follow to ad full body)

    It sounds super deep and meaty. It is the warmest MTD I have heard to be honest. And I was a little surprised since it had the macasser top. I figured with an ebony body cap it would be a little on the snappy side, but that neck just balances it out (being ash) and it comes across as gobs of warmth with growly lows, and soft glassy highs (if there is such a thing as soft glassy :) ) I'll post sound clips later on.

    Is that a maple body/ash neck or ash body/maple neck?

    If it's maple body, do you have any way to get sound clips? I think that combo would be interesting...

    Congrats!! It's a real beauty.

    Looks to me to be an ash body and maple neck, but it's kinda' hard to see.
