    This has been my favorite bass for a few years. But I decided 35" scale puts a strain on my hand and I am moving to 34". I would never sell this otherwise.

    535-24
    serial number 1583
    8.8 pounds exactly, perfect balance and weight
    mahogany body
    spalted maple top and headstock
    maple neck and rosewood board
    MTD hardcase with velvet crush interior

    Looks new to me.

    The neck is exceptional. I took a few basses to SF Guitarworks to inquire about a PLEK. My other basses which I thought were pretty great too, they said were uneven a tiny bit, enough to justify a PLEK. They put this bass on the scanner and said it was perfect, nothing could improve it.

    This MTD is beyond exceptional. I have owned over 30 and this was by far the best sounding and playing MTD of all of them. If I wasn't playing 4 strings with flats these days I would buy this bass back. Anyone who wants to chat about this instrument feel free to contact me, it's insane

    In keeping with good bass karma, it is now yours.
    I will miss it a lot.

    I’ve been on both sides of a couple of these “bring her back home” deals. Good karma for sure! It’s a Talkbass thing...
