    Hi, for sale is my beloved MTD USA Saratoga 5. It's a great bass, but I'm putting it up for sale/trade as it's not getting enough playing time it deserves. Mainly because I'm not a full-time musician and I have other priorities these days.

    Tonally, it is one of the most well balanced bass I've played and it has a super rich, deep voicing while delivering plenty of punchy mid as well. Its outstanding evenness across the entire scale demonstrates its sublime quality of craftsmanship. Even at extreme low and high registers, this bass just sings. This bass produces the modern, hi-fi sound with a lot of subtle growl that is unique to MTD basses. It is an extremely versatile instrument and is like a Swiss knife of a bass which can cut through any musical situation.

    Specifications:
    Body:
    Swamp Ash
    Neck: Maple
    Fingerboard: Rosewood (34" scale, 21 frets)
    Finish: Natural with catalyzed urethane finish
    Hardware: Hipshot (black)
    Pick-ups: Custom wound Bartolini J's
    Electronics: Custom Bartolini
    Controls: Volume/Passive tone (stacked), treble, mid (push/pull, 400/800), bass, pick-up select, active/passive switch

    I can ship worldwide, at the user's expense.

    I am open to trades, so feel free to make offers via PM thanks.


    Thanks for reading, God bless. Photos below:

    I’ll have to check with FedEx but you’d be looking at around 500+ imo

    Thats why I put the price as low as it is, as a courtesy for people paying for the shipping fee. This bass is 5100 USD when new.

    I'm endorsed by MTD, so I know the prices. I figured that's why it was priced low though.
