    Hello Friends,

    Listing my MTD 535-24 for sale. It was built at the very end of 2017 and is less than 6 months old. Absolute mint condition, only been gigged with once and spent the remainder of the time virtually untouched.

    Comes with all the bells and whistles - beautiful maple burl top, matching wooden knobs, matching finger ramp, birdseye maple fingerboard and custom fitted hardshell MTD case. Paperwork included.

    This bass is total slap city.
    At the end of the day EVERY MTD is great for slap but with the Ash/Maple wood combo this bass absolutely thunders and cuts through. The B string is so clear it sounds like you’re banging the low B on a grand piano. I don’t have a scale at home but this bass is LIGHT. I’d place my estimate at low 9’s lbs.

    I’ll cover shipping depending on buyers location. Bass will be professionally packaged and insured.

    Feel free to PM with any questions or inquiries. I’m not looking for a trade at the moment but could be tempted with a any 34” scale, 24 fret bass of equal value or higher (I’ll add cash).
