    MTD (Michael Tobias Designs) USA Saratoga 5 PJ bass. Very recent build for Summer NAMM 2017. If you don’t associate MTD with classic sounds, think again. The B-Axis pickups in passive mode with the exceptional envelope of this tone control make for an absolute swiss-army knife/work-horse of an instrument, as you still get the awesome and varied tonal palette that’s a given with Mr. Tobias’ work.
    These seldom come up for sale and with good reason, as this series just keeps getting better and more finely honed. Experience the latest and the greatest in its evolution - no wait and at a sizable discount.

    Specs:
    • 34″ Scale
    • Tulipwood (poplar) Body
    • “10” Quilted Maple Top in Blackburst - matching heal plate / headstock (front & rear)
    • Maple Neck
    • 24 Fret - Genadillo Fingerboard w/ Lumilay position markers on both the side (traditional), and face
    • Bartolini B-Axis PJ Pickups
    • 18V Bartolini HRT32 Preamp with passive switch, Bass / Treble, Push/Pull Mid Frequency (400/800Hz) and Tone controls
    • Wood matched knobs
    • MTD/Protec Gig Bag
    • Tools and Case Candy
    New list is over $7500, street $5600 + SHP. Mine, now $4050 Shipped/Insured within the lower 48. Willing to meet for a local deal. Paypal ok

    I've never had an issue or complaint with the B-sting on any MTD (only played US models) I've ever played.
    In the event that someone felt differently, the Bass frequency on the preamp is centered at 30Hz... so there's that as a safety net :D
