    I bought this back when I was part of the Groove Shoppe. I ended up sticking it in a closet and literally never using it. The bass is dead mint.

    I hand picked the woods on this so everything is absolutely prime. Even the Wenge is a beautiful creamy and smooth piece - as opposed to a lot of the chalky looking ones that you often see.

    • Ash body
    • Highly figured Maple burl "10" top
    • Wenge neck
    • Wenge finger board
    • Matching truss rod cover
    • Matching headstock veneer
    • Dark cherry burst
    • MTD hard shell case

    This is the classic MTD wood combo and tone - big and growly with a presence that only comes from an MTD. This particular bass is an exceptional example of what makes Mike Tobias so sought after.

    Looking to trade only for the following:

    • Really nice Sadowsky NYC's (must have figured tops)
    • Alleva LG5 (nitro)
    • Dingwall 5 (Prima or Super J)
    • Ken Lawrence 5
    • Fodera 5/6

    All +/- cash as appropriate

    Will sell for $3700 shipped in the continental US -- this is a steal on a brand new bass! Comes with MTD hardshell case.

    Not looking for anything else.

    Thanks,
    JC

    Joel, so this is a 635/24 tulip/maple wenge/wenge bass?

    Dang, that thing looks amazing... just like everything else you (and your lucky customers at the time) got from Mike... ;) :D

    Yes, it is a Wenge neck and Wenge fretboard.

    The body is Ash. So it's actually Ash/Maple, Wenge/Wenge. Still the ultimate MTD wood combo IMHO.

    Thanks Vic! I appreciate it.

    Wow - this is a tough time for selling the high-end stuff... Lot's of inquries but no one has pulled the trigger yet. I'm open to hearing reasonable offers.

    Thanks,
    JC

    On hold - I just came to agreement on a third party trade that's making my head spin! But it's all good in the end.
