This is a relatively recent MTD build ( April 2011 ) in fantastic condition , I see only one tiny scuff from a belt buckle ( ? ) on the belly cut. This 1/4″ scuff prevents me from the using the M word.
- Ash body – 9lbs, 3oz.
- Buckeye top and headstock
- Ash neck , 21 frets , with Luminlay side dots
- Rose of the Mountain fingerboard
- Deluxe MTD hardshell case with all paperwork
It goes without saying , but I am going to say it, this bass plays like butter. The Ash neck and body provide some grit and grind that can be accentuated , or tempered , via the Bart 3 band preamp.
Look around and you can find other 535s for less $ , but none like this bass , in this bass’ condition.
