MTD 434 poplar body/ quilt maple top, roasted maple neck/ Florida rosewood fingerboard, body matching Peghead veneer and truss rod cover, custom P-bass style pickups and MTD custom electronics, body matching wooden control knobs.

This stunning 4 was built for a very discriminating MTD player who wanted a P-bass with the excellent ease of playability of Michael’s basses. Split coil “P style” pickups are housed in traditional MTD pickup housings make for a subtle and stealth factor.

It’s alder body and quilt maple top add to the formula. Roasted maple neck, and Florida rosewood fingerboard provide vintage responsiveness.

Custom “Autumn Leaves” finish by Daniel Tobias is tasteful, and conjures up memories of walking through the forest on a crisp autumn day.

This bass has a high degree of responsiveness, solidity, and a balanced “voice”. Low register is full, clear, and throaty. Highs are sweet, and clear. Great for finger style or slapping.

While this bass was commissioned for a customer it was never delivered. We are selling it “as new” with extra reduction in price.
