    I've been on the hunt for a MTD 535-24 for awhile and I picked this amazing bass up recently from Gr8tbass to spell my 24 fret needs. I had forgotten how well these basses play and sound, Keith Roscoe makes an incredible bass. I am still looking for a 535-24 and once here, this one will sit but if it doesn't sell I won't be disappointed.

    Here is Gr8tbass's thread:

  2. Not to undermine your sale, but a bit of clarity on the neck laminates:

    We consider the wedge neck to be a 5-piece neck, in this case, purpleheart center, wenge stringers, and maple outer pieces.

    The laminates between are just veneers, which we do not count in describing the neck - however, to correctly identify the species here, there is no morado in the neck, the lighter colored veneers are maple, the darker on this are cherry.

    Good luck with the sale, it's a beautiful bass! :)

    Spanish Cedar, Demeter....got to be a sweet tone.

    Bump for a great bass at a great price!

    Truly wish I were in a position to take her off your hands.
