    Look what FedEx delivered today. This is my 4th MTD, but it's the first new one that I've bought. Totally insane top, not to wild, just perfect, and a solid one at that. I've alway been a big wenge fb/neck fan, and this one doesn't disappoint. The MTD logo is way cool, a real nice touch. This one for sure is a real keeper. :hyper:

    Nope...I heard on the news that there was a little quake in your neck of the woods but I didn't feel a thing... Funny since we are only about 10 miles from each other.

    So, what is the body? It looks to be mahogany...

    It's actually black limba. The weight is pretty heavy, almost as heavy as my Imperial.

    Here's what Mike had to say about my bass:

  10. nice mtd! i like the top with the matching truss cover =). but is it just me or does it look a little weird in between the nut and the zero fret?

    I love it. I really like a nice dark top with the sapwood showing-your MTD reminds me of a Benavente I used to own.
    It also reminds me of a Benavente that The Low End just sold.

    I like sapwood tops so much better that all the spalt/burl/lace/quilt/flamed/curly combination tops that seems like a lot of guys get.

    Roy,
    Absolutely stunning.
    I've got to decide what woods I want for my next 535.
    I've done the poplar body (tulipwood) wenge/wenge and the one I bought from you,avadore body wenge/wenge, but since experiencing my ash, ash/maple 635/24 I want to try other neck and board combinations other than wenge/wenge, however, let me go on record by saying I do like that tone, and may go back to that combination someday, but right now I am looking at other options. With all that said when can we get together so I can play it? BTW, pretty good jolt last night, wasn't '94 but a reminder nonetheless.

    Thanks Paul! Ever since I traded you my 535, I've been longing to get one again.

    What you see there is probably epoxy, which is accentuated by the flash of my camera. The nut and zero fret is prefect.
