NBD: MTD 535 24 Walnut

Post by cackland » 13 Oct 2018, 16:39

NBD from June; thought people might like to see some images other than from Georges Sale Post. (Another happy BGD customer)

body is swamp ash with a crotch walnut top.
neck is maple with an Indian rosewood fingerboard.
dot material from Luminlay.
35" scale with 24 frets.
Bartolini Electronics and Hipshot Hardware

Enjoy!

Stunning :cool:

That looks even better than the photo's on the BGD site. Lots of MTD love around here at the moment :thumbup:

Beautiful, Chris. I'm turning into a walnut nut myself atm so I really appreciate that lovely book matched "flamed" walnut, amazing stuff.
What's the preamp in this? And are the markers on the knobs SB23 Luminlay dots?

Regards,
Michael

Hi Micheal,
Bartolini Preamp and Luminlay dots - I was worried the Luminlay would be a bit over the top but its really quite subtle

Cheers Chris
