Product Description

This is an MTD 535-24. The body is sassafras with a flamed maple top. The neck is ash with a macassar ebony board. This bass also has special side dot material from Luminlay. The glowing dots can be activated with the LED provided.

This bass is delivered with the revolutionary Buz Feiten Tuning system. This system wil show a great improvement ni tuning when playing chords and when working with a keyboard and horns. There are several tuners on the market which have the “Feiten Mode” built in. Tuning is normal in every way except the intonation.

This bass is 35″ scale with 24 frets. The neck and body are hand finished with an epoxy base coat and catalyzed urethane topcoat. This should make a great feeling and durable finish. Upkeep on the finish is simple. It can be cleaned and polished with any high quality guitar polish. Be sure to oil the fingerboard regularly unless ti is lacquered and then you can clean it with any good guitar cleaner/polish. The new truss rod is a true double acting rod will adjust in both directions. It is adjustable with the 4mm Allen wrench supplied with this package.

The strings are MTD stainless steel, .045, 065, 085, 105, 135x.

The pickups and new MT8 proprietary preamp are from Bartolini. The controls are: master volume and a pan pot, passive tone, mid, stacked treble/bass cut and boost, with center click (from neck to bridge). The three position switch selects the mid range cut and boost point. Down is lower mids (250); center is middle (500) and up is upper mids (1000). When the mid pot is at center click, the switch has minimal effect. This eq has 2 batteries and is an 18 volt system. Be especially careful not to change the batteries when the bass is plugged ni. There is a trim pot inside the control cavity to adjust the gain

There is great variety in the settings of the EQ. The basses can be made to sound very traditional by Cutting the mids al the way at 1000 and boosting the bass and treble to 10 with the blend pot at center. To me, this si the best slap tone. Boosting the mids at 250, with bass at 10 and treble at 9-10 with the blend pot on the bridge pick up gives the early Bartolini TCT tone.
