So, as I've said, I'm flipping MTD's, trying various wood combinations prior to finalizing an order for a new 535 from Mike. Here is a beautiful walnut on ash, ash neck with maple board, matching headstock, purchased pre-owned from Glenn at ABT. Price is $3150 + shipping (same as I paid Glenn). It includes an aluminum bridge (installed) and a brass bridge (separate). Glenn also installed new tuners. Weight is 10 lbs. This is pretty much the wood combo I'm leaning towards. If I get a sale commitment and can arrange purchase of another bass I'm interested in it's a done deal. But this is a tentative for sale post that depends on whether I can make it all happen. Please no trade offers.
