    At long last- i got a package from Mike Tobias today-- This thing is scary!! Mike just keeps getting better- i have owned 3 MTDs- and this is the best yet.. i sent him the woods and he sends me back a monster!! Incredible evenness throughout the fretboard- the wenge and ash give this bass incredible punch! it does the slice you head off back pickup tone and the phat Marcus tone as well- and everything in-between.
    Im in love!! thanks Mike!!

    Now THIS really blows my mind. Might as well throw my new FMT in the dumpster.

    Damn that's sweet, Adrian:D

    I took mine to a recording session/rehearsal last night with a new band. The first time through I had taken my FMT, which everyone loved, including me. After we were done last night I asked if they had a preference, I'm always looking for feedback of any kind...

    No contest. The 635 is one sick instrument. Chords are beautiful, amazing slap tone, just all around fantastic instrument... and mine doesn't have the Buzzy Feiten system.

    I still can't believe it's mine:D.

    Kind of typical isn't it, short congratulatory statement followed by two paragraphs of me babbling about mine;)

    Adrian, that's amazing!!! Good thing you didn't have it two weeks ago, or I might have not let you have it back, the way I did your Fodera.

    Now...speaking of that Fodera;)

    Seriously, though, congrats! Next time I'm out there, my wife may be bored, but I'll be lookin' at that thing as if it WERE my wife! Too bad it's yours:D
