    Hey everyone. This listing is for my MTD Saratoga. Picked this up in a trade earlier this year. It features an ash body with a myrtle burl top, maple neck, and birdseye maple board. The pickups and preamp are both from Nordstrand. I would say it is in as-new condition. Built in January of last year. 34 inch scale.

    The tone is remarkable on this bass. Everything that comes out of the MTD shop is fantastic, but I think this particular instrument is as good as it gets. I am letting it go because I just picked up another exotic 5 string that I have had my eye on for a long time. I am very grateful that I got to spend some time with this bass though.

    $4500 shipped. I always consider trade offers if you want to make one. I can go +/- cash as needed. Please message me if you have something in mind.

    WOW, nice!

    A few things:
    - what are those pickups?
    - how much does the bass weigh?
    - can you post Mike's letter that comes with the bass, should have some of these details in it.

    Thanks.

    The pickups are Nordy Blades, and it weighs 9 pounds even. I will post the letter when I get a chance, but it doesn't have much additional information.

    The letters don't have the weight.
