Hmmm… that MTD sound, always unique, distinctive and luxurious. I’ve been playing an MTD 535 for quite some time and I am still loving it.
Earlier this year Bass Player did a good piece on the Z4 and Z5 basses. There is meant to be a Z6 coming soon. That promises to be a cracking 6 string, complete with the Buzz Feiten tuning system, at an affordable price.
The MTD website doesn’t seem to have been updated in a while, but there is an intersting overview of MTD history here. There is a very nice clip on YouTube, which gives a slideshow of a bass being built, and suggests there is a video on the way. Excellent!
We are increasingly spoilt for choice as bass players, even for six strings. Enjoy!
