Not sure what I can say about this bass that hasn’t been said about Jennifer Aniston... Superlatives like Beautiful. Perfect. “10”. Hot. Smooth. Easy to look at. Pleasure to hold. Getting carried away here.....Sorry. This bass is perfect. Literally not a knick, ding, scratch, depression, smudge, piece of dust, NOTHING on this thing. It’s truly perfect. Specs: Body: Dragonwood Empress - Tight Grain (harder) Neck: Maple Board: Birds Eye Maple Color: Hand Rubbed “midnight blue” Spacing: 19mm Scale: 35” - doesn’t feel like it. Weight: VERY light. Scale says 7.5-ish lbs. - you read that correctly - 7.5lbs. No neck dive. Sound: Typical MTD USA Super 5. Growl. Super mid range and beastly bass. A lot of people don’t realize how excellent Empress is at transmitting mid and bass frequencies. It’s probably better than ash, honestly. Extremely versatile sound. If you’re familiar with the Bart pups and pre in these, you know these can be dialed into just about any usable tone you’d like. Playability: Because this bass is so light, you could play this all day, and have absolutely no issue at all. Your back will Thank You. The neck is brilliant, as all MTD’s are, and the action is perfect. Not to low, not too high. Just right and super easy to play whatever your style. It’s really about as perfect a bass as you’ll find here. If you called Mike and asked him to build this, you’d be about to drop some serious cash-heesh! Base price is $5900. Options include: $400 - Hand rubbed stain $200 - 24 Fret Board $150 - Empress/Dragonwood Body $500 - Birds Eye Maple Fretboard $260 - ProTec Contigo case $100 - Matching Peghead $100 - World Logo Total: $7610. Mike may cut you a little discount if you paid cash. But, you’d still be dropping 7 large. I’ve got it here, in new condition, for $4250. That’s a better price than you’re gonna find anywhere else for this bass, in this condition. This bass is like new, seriously. It appears as though it was just taken out of the case the first time when you see it. I will entertain trades. Basses of interest would be other fretted 5’s or 6’s.
