    Been busy lately,

    Got some time on my hands, so i took a pic. I will post some more soon.

    This is a 535, Buckeye Burl Top, Mahogony Body, Wenge Neck ana Board, matching headstock, electronics cavity etc. It also has a high gloss finish. Standard Barts in there, I love that classic Bart thump tone! MTD's are the real deal. If your near a dealer, check them out!

    That's definitely a sexy top. Can I ask an ignorant question? What's that dark brown patch on the bottom horn (the one on the right in the pic)? Is that part of the actual wood, or is that some kind of goop or filler they use? Reason I ask is, I've seen some similar stuff on Roscoe basses, but I haven't really seen it from any other manufacturer. Enlightenment is greatly appreciated!

    Really nice bass! I'm sure it looks much better in person.

    It's the buckeye. :p
     
  12. Thank you for buying that one and relieving me of a major temptation every time I looked at the BassCentral site! ;)

    Can't wait to see more pics and hear a review!

    I gotta say that buckeye burl is some awesome looking stuff.

    I'm tempted to try working w/ it, but I'm sure I'd screw it up.

    However, I DOOOOO live in Ohio... soooo....
     
  14. Not only do I live in Ohio, but I'm also an Ohio State grad! :eek: :bag: :help:

    I hate you now!

    Question/s: Is that bridge inset? And, do those knobs push in flush? From the pic, that's what it looks like. I don't think I've seen knobs that small before.

    What do you mean?

    For the most part. They are the new ones mike is putting on his basses. There rubber, so theres really no issure with them stratching the face of the instrument.
