    This beautiful MTD 535 Fretless was made for me by Michael Tobias on 07-10-2000. It's a flamed maple top over korina, 35" scale, wenge neck, 21 fret ebony fingerboard with maple inlaid lines, mammoth ivory nut, brass bridge, matching headstock to body, matching trussrod cover to fingerboard in a Gold to Red fade. It weighs approximately 9 lbs. It comes with a hardshell case that I never used but just kept in storage.

    It's a super growly bass with incredible clarity and focus. I hate to part with it but I unfortunately I need to. Please PM with any questions.

    Can't believe this is still here. If this bass is anything like my fretless 534-21, it slices through any mix like nothing else.

  6. Thank you for that offer but it's much less than I'd like to get for this bass.
     
  7. Me too. It's a great sounding bass that cuts in a mix for sure.

    The model number 535-21 refers to: 5 strings, 35" scale, 21 frets.
    On this page USA Handmade — Michael Tobias Design look for the paragraph called "Electronics".
    It explains the controls.
