All I can say is WOW, what a bad a@# bass. I've tried several High-end type basses. This was it, I had to take a half-day off work to stay home and play it. Bass has a maple neck w/ rosewood finger board, natural maple burl top and mohogany body. This bass falls somewhere between spending the evening with your 'FAVORITE LADY' and winning the Lottery for 40 million. FAVORITE LADY This bass is a dream to play, the action, the tone, string spacing and the look are very happening. Its a stretch when you get above the 15th fret but I have long fingers, no problem at all. If you are looking for a killer 6 string bass, MTD is the ticket. Mike Tobias basses are simpley the 'BEST' I have ever played. Thanks to B. Felton, Gard and Grasshopper at Bass Central, rightous dudes. . . Now I've got to upgrade my rig!. . .this bass is tooo sweet.
