  4. For sale/For Trade a beautiful MTD 535-21 from 1995, very good shape, lightweight (3.7kg) and very rare with this woods configuration. It's a bass from second year of the MTD's production (finished in December 1995), delivered with original brown hardcase and Mike's letter. Its weight is really surprising for a 5 string and it is very balanced. The sound is filled with growl and presence, lots of low-mids and a really strong character. This is according to Tobias, the sound he had in mind when he thought about the evolution he wanted to make by launching this new brand in the early 90s. Here are specifications : Body : Korina, lightweight whith a wonderlful golden color Neck : Wenge, quartersawn, one piece, 4 screws bolt-on with asymetric profile Fingerboard : One piece of Wenge Scale : 35" Frets : 21 + 1 frets silver/nickel in perfect shape Headstock : 2 + 3 with Wenge veneer Nut : Bone Pickups : Originals MTD/Bartolini, inverted P pickups Preamp : Original MTD/Bartolini, works with two battery, +/-9v configuration Controls : Volume/Blend/Bass/Mids/Treble + Mediums frequencies switch 250/400/800 Hz Tunes : Originals Gotoh GB707 Bridge : Original Wilkinson in perfect condition Strings Spacing at Bridge : 19mm Strings Spacing at Nut : 9mm Knobs : MTD Hardware color : Black Trussrod : One working and perfect set up rod Land of Craftsmanship : Handmade in USA Weight : 3.7kg This bass is very easy to play and the weight is super nice when you are standing. The bass has a few strokes and a few marks, but nothing bad for a bass of this age. It’s an instrument that has been played and that resonates wonderfully. The sound is typical MTD, with snap and an unbeatable slap sound. The woods used really offer a very ample and imposing sound, with a very good definition and a really important presence in a mix.
