This is a super premium bass built in the USA and comes loaded with quality specs. A letter from Michael Tobias is also included along with an MTD branded hardshell case. This was not gigged and only has one previous owner. This item is in overall great condition with no signs of wear. There is some slight discoloration on the back of the neck by the headstock from the foam from a hangar.

This bass only weighs in at 7.8lbs!


Chambered roasted swamp ash body

Figured walnut top

Maple neck with pistachio finger board and Luminlay side dots

35" scale with 24 frets

Hand applied epoxy base coat and catalyzed urethane top coat

Buzz Feiten Tuning System

Double action truss rod 

Custom Nordstrand pickups (these replaced the original Bartolinis)

Custom Bartolini preamp (original)

Comes with the original MTD hard case and build sheet.


There is much speculation about the fretboard; it is most likely roasted birdseye maple, though the letter from Michael states "pistachio." The letter and the serial numbers match; so this was most likely just a typo on his part.
