    I think the brown stain may not be as sexy as the bursts but it’s super classy!

    It is close to Christmas, so that maybe one reason. If i had money just sitting around like that, i would have picked this up long ago.

    Agreed I think it’s the Christmas proximity which is understandable. I’ve owned about 6 535s and this is my favorite. if it wasn’t for my Saratoga ( which is 34 inches) this one would be staying .

    Neck looks pretty thin on this one.

    They all have great necks. The body on this one is amazing man. I just bought a couple bass’s or I would be all over it. Especially at this price.

    I don't like when the neck is too thin. The newer 535's have great necks, but not sure on the older one's. I had a older Tobias and the neck was too thin for my liking, but my older 635 had a really good feeling neck. It was thinner, than the newer one's.

    This is insane. Best price I have seen on a MTD 535.

    I agree ! You know the economy is down if this is still around at this price. Back in the glory days I think this would have sold in an hour. I once sold a Smith 6 string in 15 minutes!

    Speaking of 6 string Smiths, would you be interested in a trade for one?
