    Sorry it's not an inline shot but I need to rustle up some webspace somewhere.

    Anyhoo: got her last week... just got the camera yesterday. :) Pretty nice price on the MTD. It's been played, but excellent condition. The body is tulipwood, the neck is wenge/wenge.

    Interesting top... not everyone will find the blotches attractive but I do. Oh: the seller said this top was maple burl... but I saw a pic of another MTD that had a similar top, and the site said it was myrtle burl. Anybody know?

    About the bass: it just kicks! My other basses are very nice, but I ran the 535 through my rig with absolutely NO EQ (bass or amp) and it sounded beautiful. Even the guys in the band loved it!

    I'm gonna rustle up a family photo when I can... I've got almost half as many as Brad now. :)

    Lovely top, Fuzzy.:) I think it is myrtle burl. If I ever have the money, I would love to have an MTD with the wenge/wenge neck. Yum!:cool:

    Thanks, everyone... I'm totally happy about it! :)

    She was on eBay and BassGear. The eBay auction closed without hitting reserve (I don't know what reserve was, but BuyItNow was $2400). I contacted the seller and bought it for $25 more than the highest bid. Is it OK to say total price including 2nd Day Air was $2200?

    The seller said he'd just gotten two more MTD's that he needed to pay for. I should've asked him more about them. The box he shipped mine in was a 535 box, and the outside said "redwood/avodire, wenge/wenge"... whoa! That's most likely one of his two new ones. Considering the nice one he sold me, his new ones must be outrageously cool!

    Very nice looking, and I know it will sound great. I really like the red burst.

    My MTD is a maple burl over swamp ash. I don't think I can tell the difference between the different burl woods.

    sometimes, words fail me, but that won't stop me from trying to express how i feel about that bass:


    well, i tried.
  20. That's it. You got 3 options!
    #1: Give me your bass!
    #2: Show me where the tree that grows money is
    #3: Meet me at the parking lot in 10 minutes...

    Sweet deal though.
