Howdy Basslanders, Some help from the community would be greatly appreciated. If you have owned either item or have some advice, please chime in on the following offer, which I am currently considering accepting. I have an MTD 535-24 I'm considering to trade or sell. #789 and quite an exemplary instrument in near mint condition. This baby is a beast. Burled Myrtle over Ash with Maple fingerboard. This beauty has to go, so I'm wanting to trade it for a Fender American-Deluxe Jazz 5 (non sunburst) to partner with my Fender AM-DLX 4 and a hi quality bass head...amp + pre also OK. I am getting various offers for other 5's, gear + cash. A chap has offered his Epifini UL-902C and $1000.00 for my MTD. Is this a fair deal in you opinion? She's stunning and the lightest 5 string I have held. The reason for passing her along to a new good home is that I just can't do 35" comfortably. Switching between my Jazz bass and this instrument confounds my technique in first position...the dang neck is too long (35"). Ergonomically, I'm in all the wrong arm and wrist angles for healthy playing. Thanks!
