535-24 with luminay side dots, buckeye burl 10 top with matching knobs, truss cover, and headstock, alder body, maple neck with Ebony fretboard. Has the standard bartolini mtd electronics. Asymmetrical neck. This is completely max spec from MTD.

I cannot find any damage on the bass - I'd say 9.5/10 condition (seriously super super clean). I don't have the original case but I will include a heavy duty padded gig bag. Weighs just under 4kg. Located in Sydney. Asking $6500. Partial trades considered.

Somebody buy this. With the AUD getting worse and worse, these basses will only get more expensive and harder to buy in Aus...

gorgeous
I'm sure it's my poor eyesight, but it looks like the saddles do 2 strings which can't be right for a bass such as this.
Please tell me they are single saddles and just look like they are doubles

Lol. It's a standard hipshot bridge which MTD has as an option on their builds.

I'm in pyrmont. Happy for anyone to have a play, although she needs a setup I think...
