I got this bass today on trade. It's an MTD 535-24 with avidore body, maple burl top, and a rosewood fingerboard. I've hated every MTD I've ever played accept for two. The first one I liked I played several years ago and had a tulip wood body, wenge neck. The one I got today is the only other I've played that I really like. I don't know how long I'll keep it, (probably not long) but it is one of the better basses I've ever owned. Huge sound and great playability. But don't be suprised to see it for sale soon. I'm going to at least play a couple gigs with it for fun but I'm still more of a Fender guy.
