    Well the timing couldn't have been more perfect. Yesterday about noon, the FedEx truck pulls up and the guy delivers my Aguilar 2-12 cabinet which i've been waiting over a month for. I can finally use my DB359 which I got for such a sweet deal over a month ago.:bassist:
    Then, about four hours later, a different FedEx dude pulls up and brings me my long awaited MTD535:D A day earlier than it was supposed to arrive. Man, i'm just having a blast. This bass through this amp is simply incredible. All of my basses through this amp sound great. And the level of craftsmanship and care that go into the MTD basses are unreal. I'm a happy camper. Now, i'm DONE!!! For a long time anyway.
    Here's my only dilemma, this past year i've pretty much gone on a bass buying binge. Now, i've actually got more basses than i'll probably use (5). And as much as I love having 5 basses, realistically I haven't the need for all of 'em. I'll probably post another thread asking advice on this for $h*ts and giggles:) Anyway, check out my babies if you would like.

    I love stained MTD's, especially in blue. Awesome bass, and awesome rig too.
