    I've decided that it's time to sell my 535. :crying:

    It's such a beautiful bass and sounds incredible. I've just come to the final conclusion that the 35" scale just doesn't work for me after getting my Zon Custom 5.

    What can I say about this bass. It originally was ordered and owned by Jonathan Starr, here on TB.com. It's an ash body with a maple burl top. It has a maple neck with a very nice rosewood board. The color is kind of an amber-orange burst.

    The bass is as new and shows absolutely no sign of wear. I can take detailed photos if you want.

    I'm asking $2250 plus shipping. The ONLY trade would be for a Walter Woods Ultra amp as that's what the proceeds from this bass is for.

  3. That's a great bass, with a really crisp top end great for percussive playing. And it's a beauty.

    Aloha,

    Jonathan

    Hi Jonathan, it is a very sweet bass. People go nuts over the top wood on the bass. I will probably really regret selling it.

    This has got to be the most beautiful MTD I've seen so far, and there is a lot of competition :)

    I really look forward to playing a MTD some day, but there are really few opportunities here in Iceland, I think there is at least one on the island though.

    zbigniew, thanks for the compliment. ;) I have always gotten more compliments about the looks of this bass than any of my other basses. The photo really doesn't even do it justice.

    J.B., I have the MTD Ultra-light. It's a real nice case and about 30 pounds lighter than the hard case I got with my Zon.

    Do you still have the Imperial then? Isn't that a 36 inch scale?

    Yes, I still have the Imperial. I don't anticipate that it will be going anywhere. 36" scale is correct. And the obvious answer to the obvious question is that it is a very unique bass an is played utilizing a playing position further up the neck where scale length isn't that much of an issue. :meh:

    Thanks for the offer Joey! As much as I like Keith's work one of the main reasons I'm selling my MTD is the scale length. All of my other basses are based around a 34" scale other than my Fodera Imperial 6.

    I plan on using the proceeds from the sell of the MTD to purchase a Walter Woods amp.

    Thanks again!
