    This is easily the best condition bass I've ever sold. The catalyzed urethane acrylic finish they put on these things is simultaneously slim and extremely hard/durable! This bass has no issues or defects - selling due to buying a custom build that makes this one redundant for me.

    Michael Tobias Design 24 fret 35" scale 635 6-string; "10" burled walnut top on northern ash body, one piece maple neck with a tiger stripe ebony fretboard. Matching truss rod cover and peghead. Matching knobs. Comes with both Hipshot Type A and B bridges (A installed)! Stock, proprietary MTD USA Bartolini pickups and preamp. Original hard shell case included, also in immaculate condition (I never use hardshells).

    Super clean - in fact, the only blemish I can really find is a very diminutive impression on the top point on the headstock, pictured. What may look like very slight scratches in the light's reflection on the body's top are actually the natural variations in the quality of the highly figured walnut top, and you can see the finish completely permeates them.

    Shipping to the lower 48 states included, negotiable elsewhere. I don't think anything on this bass conflicts with CITES regulations, so that makes things easier for international shipping. Located in Seattle, WA.

    Thank you! I'm pretty happy with the camera on the new Galaxy S10. This puppy's right around 10.5lbs on a postal scale.

    If you'd like to make an offer, the worst I can say is "sorry man, can't do it, but how about..." Get your weekend off right, on the good foot!

    I’ve been playing a friend’s MTD 535-21 for a month or so. And, I’ve played a couple others a few years back. They’re unbeatable when it comes to build quality, playability, and (on my friend’s bass) B string tone and clarity!

    Someone should snag this one!

    I have a 534-25 17mm spacing and just recently bought a USA Saratoga... this is all I need to complete my list/lust for MTD.

    At the end of it all, on your death bed, you'll never look back and wish you'd had fewer MTD Basses

    Is it uncool to ask what custom build is coming your way ?

    Not uncool at all, already here, and actually not (entirely) custom! It's a 25th anniversary MTD 635, similar to this one a bit, so close to the custom specs I was talking to them about ordering I had to go for it - even though it was a store order. Nothing else can really replace a 635 but another 635 ☺️
