    :eek: Wow! That is one of the nicets tops I have ever seen! I mean... dang.

    Very nice purchase. :)
  3. that is without a doubt one of the most striking basses I've ever seen. Between the fretboard and that swirling blue-green top you have one amazing bass. Oh, and Im sure the tone ain't that bad either ;)

    WOW!!! That is one of the sweetest looking MTD's i've seen yet. Yeah, it does look a lot like Kong's. You're a lucky, lucky guy. That top is amazing. Congrats.:bassist: #999 is a pretty cool # too:)

    Dag yo that thing is beyond sweet. Very nice score.
  14. Sorry, I didn't build that one. You must be referring to Mr.Tobias. :D

    O.K. That was a cheap shot. Forgive me. :(

    Winterbass, I absolutely go wild for unlined rosewood/ebony boards! :hyper: It's the visual contrast of silver strings against a dark background.

    She's a beauty.

    Good luck with her.

    Great bass!!! Those 535s are just wonderful, although I've never played a fretless. I'm sure it doesn't suck!

    Just to correct you. You didn't buy number 999, you bought #666. It will make you the best player ever, but your sole will belong in the underworld forever! Mwah, ha, ha!

    Just kidding. Enjoy it.
