[Trade Pending] MTD USA 535-24! *Sound Sample Included*

Post by swalexbass » 17 Aug 2018, 10:43

TRADE PENDING, so all other offers will need to wait, unless the other deal doesn't go through. But you may still make offers and get in queue. Thanks.

Sale Price: $4,899

Trade Value: $4,999.
Interested Items: Sadowsky NYC, Fodera Standard, another MTD, Fender Pino Palladino Signature, Fender Custom Shop Precision, Fender AVRI Precision, Sadowsky Metro etc. But I do prefer trades with cash coming my way, so feel free to make offers thanks.


Hi Ozbass,

Here's another beast that you won't see come up for sale often, so grab it while you can :D

My beautiful MTD USA 535-24 in rare and stunning Masur Birch top. MTD, no words needed to describe it. Widely renowned as having one of the best slap tones in the business. Like all MTDs, this beast has that really modern, hi-fi tone with that trademark MTD subtle growl. Extremely well-balanced instrument with deep growly fat lows, punchy and tight mids and crystal clear highs.

The only cosmetic issue is that the neck pickup is slightly dented, but it doesn't affect the playing at all. I've tried to capture it as closely as I can in the pictures below. It's pretty unnoticeable once you start playing it, you will forget that's even there.



I left the original hardcase overseas, but I can have that shipped to me in a week if someone decides to buy it. Specification and pictures below:

Specifications:
Body: Alder
Neck: Maple
Fingerboard: Macasscar Ebony
Top: Premium Masur Birch
Electronics: Custom Bartolini

Didn't mean to start collecting or anything but just happened naturally over the years. :)
