    MTD Lite...I'll have a real on some day. (Please pardon the goofy hair and clothes...sometimes, you practice when you can, not when it's convenient)

    This is a MTD 535 with a heavy ash body, Burl Maple Top with matching truss rod cover and headstock. The Neck is maple on maple. There isn't any stain or coloring on the instrument. Mike Tobias really did a fantastic job. I am more than happy and have been playing this instrument exclusively since I aquired it. The wood choices really give it an agressive/growly tone!

    I happened across it. It was made custom for one, but the buyer decided not to use it, so it's mine now.
