Legendary MTD quality, affordable and Road Ready! MTD Kingston Basses were created by legendary bass builder, Michael Tobias. Featuring many of Michael’s innovative design elements, the Kingston basses are stage and studio ready! For over 35 years, Michael Tobias has been designing and building some of the greatest basses this world has ever seen. Many of the techniques and design elements he has pioneered are also in the production line of Kingston basses and guitars. It was important to him that he could offer many of his design concepts in more affordable package and available to all musicians. The instruments are extremely playable and tonally outstanding. They are ergonomically designed for extended practicing and playing, feature the asymetical neck design for proper hand placement and faster playing, the Buzz-Feiten turning system for complete instrument intonation, pickups specified by Mike to maximize the unique tone of each model, and a bridge design typically found on much more expensive instruments.
