    MTD (Michael Tobias Designs) 534-24 Fretless. Recent build (09/18) and in immaculate condition. The neck is very comfortable and fast; Mike's carves are all great, but some (this one) just stand out. Tons of tonal options with the passive tone control and onboard EQ - sings and growls like no other!

    Thank you, but that’s actually a wenge (neck), and a (lacquered) white wenge fingerboard.

    I still stand by my opinion that maple and wenge are wonderful (on another bass)

    THIS bass is amazing!

    The specs I’ve listed are correct for this bass. The 34” scale is special request; the 19mm is standard.

    17.5mm is a special request and can be quickly identified by the non-traditional sized/spec’d Bartolinis installed to those instruments. They’re also typically optioned with a Hipshot A bridge as well, as to better accommodate the more narrow spacing.
