Bit of a change here - another TB'er has generously offered to rewire and set the bass up for me. So now the sale is for a fully functional MTD Artist 4 in cherry. It's in very good condition, no real scratches or dings to speak of. Unlike most other Artists, Heirs, etc. this one has grain that's perfectly matched on the front, and hardly noticeable on the back. Another big plus is the weight, which was what sold me originally - just a hair over 7 lbs. You'll forget you have this thing on even after a 4 hour set. Very comfortable asymmetrical neck profile, 24 med. jumbo frets, single MM PU in the sweet spot, MTD 3 band pre, Buzz Feiten tuning system...the works. These go for $780 street, and there's a 5er up for sale here for $550, so I'll let her go for $500 shipped CONUS. Also considering trades for P style basses/bodies However, bear in mind that it will take awhile before the TBer who's setting it up will be finished and send it back to me, so I won't be able to ship it out immediately. PM me and we'll talk.
