No longer available Norm Stockton's MTD 535-24 *Rare & Amazing*

Discussion in 'For Sale: Bass Guitars' started by Norm Stockton, Feb 3, 2020.


  1. Price:
    6400.
    Strings:

    Location:
    California
    I’m selling my beloved amber MTD 535-24 (serial #900) used in most of my ArtOfGroove.com video curriculum. It’s a VERY special instrument in the wood combination (spalted maple top on tulipwood body and wenge neck/wenge fingerboard - virtually impossible to find this quality of wenge anymore) and that it’s of a vintage where the wood quality in general was crazy good. It’s also settled in, so sounds and plays like a dream, and is absolutely gorgeous.

    If Michael Tobias COULD find good wenge like this, a new one would cost $7k+. Offered w/ case for $6400 + shipping to someone who will cherish it. :^]

    Sorry, no trades & only in lower 48, please.

    Awesome!
    Norm, where was your avatar profile pic taken? Looks like a big stadium. Inquiring minds want to know.
