For sale is my MTD Kingston Super 5, bought new from Bass Direct for £949 about 18 months ago. It has huge amounts of tonal range from twin MM-style pickups with dual 3-way coil tap switches and 3-band eq. It had a shade of neck-dive due to the tuners it came fitted with, so I upgraded them to USA Hipshot Ultralites (£125 for the set) and now it sits on a strap or the knee beautifully. The original tuners are also included in the sale. It's 35" scale, 19mm string spacing at the bridge, with a great low B. Satin Black finish, Laurel fingerboard. There's a bit of finger swirl in the finish below the strings, but otherwise it's in excellent condition.

Up for sale is this stunning MTD535 ‘Marilyn’. Amazing playability and a killer sound (the B string is immense) but the reality is that it’s just not getting used so it needs to go to a good home.
Here are some of the specs, which can also be seen in the official letter below.
- Wenge neck with birds eye maple fingerboard.
- Chambered alder body with a claro walnut top.
- Buzz Feiten tuning system (for more accurate intonation)
- 35 inch scale 21 fret
- Bartolini pick ups and preamp
- Weight: (according to my scales approx 9.5lbs)
- 19m string spacing
It also comes with the official case.
The bass is in excellent condition and has been professionally set up last year. In the interest of transparency I have included some close up pictures of a couple of small marks on the bottom of the body. These obviously cannot be seen when playing the bass!
I am selling this wonderful Elrick Bass.
It is a bass with an impressive sound record, and not only that, but this model is very beautiful.
The bass is in perfect condition of everything, has the typical marks of having been used and played, but nothing important or that affects its functionality.
He has some non-original knobs, but more beautiful and softer to handle.
Elrick is much prettier when you have it in front of you but the pictures I've taken are bad

I can accept some trade. I am interested in Yamaha BBNE2 LTD (gray) or BBNE2 white, in perfect condition. In this case the trade will take place without contributing money. I'm also looking for a Yamaha BB2025X but in this trade you have to contribute money in my way.
Selling this beautiful MTD 535-24, sad to see it go, but needing to make room for other gear!
It's an incredible example of one of Michael Tobias' 535-24, it's one of the most comfortable basses i've ever played in my life, with an incredibly multi timbral sound.
£3400 NOW £3200 (open to sensible offers)
Collect from West London, or shipping at the buyers expense.
The only trade i'd consider would be a Fender American Elite Jazz Bass V (Champagne) + cash.
