    I've been used and abused by Gard before but yet I keep going back for more. He made me buy this today:

    Hey Groove, nice bass! I didn't see that one one their Web site, was it used or new? Is that a solid body?

    A MTD is next on my list if I could find a nice, used and reasonably priced 535 with a Wenge neck.

    Thanks Groove but I would have to relieve myself of my other Roscoe LG 3005 in Buckeye Burl and my Warwick Thumb 4 NT before I could do it. I am enjoying my newly aquired F Bass and was worth selling my Roscoe Afzelia to do it. I will miss the Roscoe though.

    I have been wanting an MTD 535 for a couple of years now but just have not been able to get myself to spend $3000-$3200 on a new one.

    Was yours used? I visit Bass Central's Web site just about every day and didn't see your's listed.
     
  9. You should slap him :D Evil Gard...

    Yeah the MTD is used "Just Barely Though" and from what I understand it came in either today or Saturday. Woo Hoo I've been looking for a Wenge neck model for awhile now. On the MTD site Mike describes the Wenge/Korina combo as:"The Korina bass with a wenge neck has a unique growl and presence with tremendous cut and punch." Just what the doctor ordered! :D

    "GAS is cured" Just ask my wife!

    groove - You uttered the magic words first: "Do ya have any used MTD's?"

    It's all your own fault! ;)

    By the way, Mike's description of the tone of korina & wenge is dead on - very growly & punchy, it will cut without being obnoxious.

    pistol - This particular one didn't make it to the webpage yet! It actually came in on Friday, and the groovster happened to pick the right moment to ask, before anyone else saw it.

    NBP66 - I don't recommend it, I hit back! :p

    van - yup, that's me, a big jerk. :D

    Steve - You ain't been 'round the store in a while, you been too busy playin' with YOUR MTD? :)

    Nice!

    Although I believe that's really Gard in those pictures talking me into that MTD. I've been "living in the van down by the river" ever since he sold me my Roscoe and the wife booted me! ;)

    Haha, each time I hear one of these stories about Gard he reminds me more and more of a crack dealer...:eek: :D

    When I get some cash, I'm hesitating about going to Gard... I'll be broke before I know it!:D
