OVERVIEW

A formidable 5-string made to the exact specifications of Michael Tobias and bass legend Andrew Gouche.

Michael Tobias and legendary bassist Andrew Gouche worked together to create the MTD Kingston AG, an amazing bass with many custom features that were personally selected by Andrew himself. This bass is fully loaded with a 35" scale, alder body with maple burl top and one-piece neck, MTD quick release bridge and Bartolini pickups and active Bartolini 3-band preamp. With its smooth playability and mind-altering tones, this bass will change the way you think about the instrument. Available in a custom finish created to perfectly blend with the fingerboard.

In Michael Tobias's own words, "This is a sweet sounding bass."

Comments about MTD Kingston Andrew Gouche Signature 5-String Electric Bass:

I received the bass opened up the outer boxes. The bass is in a simple little cardboard box. There is nothing in the box but the bass and 2 allen wrenches rubber-banded to the headstock. There is not one sliver of paper telling you about the bass, about the warranty, about what recommended strings are or how to use the preamp and knobs. I own several instruments and this was a real surprise, especially for a 2000+ instrument. I took the bass out of the box and was surprised that it had no protective coatings at all. Most every other instrument has had thin plastic protective sheets that prevent scratches during shipping and construction, but this bass had none. As a result, the plastic access covers for the electronics and battery had fine scratches all over them. The battery is in a routed out compartment covered by a plastic cover with 2 phillips head screws. The screws are attached directly into the wood body (not with any inserts). The battery is wrapped in a little piece of foam and then just lays in the body. There is no actual tilt-out battery compartment or anything. Kind of a cheap design for an instrument of this price. The bass actually makes a clunking sound coming from inside the electronics compartment if you rock the instrument back and forth. Not a show-stopper, but not expected in an instrument of this price. There are a couple of finish issues on the front including 3 different places on the neck to body cover where raw wood is showing because it wasnt properly finished. The back of the neck also has a small flaw where an imperfection was not properly filled in and sanded smooth. Also be aware the wood is very soft and the back will take a dent and the finish will scratch very easily. Tone is nice, and a wide range of sounds can be had. Great intonation and I love the feel of the neck as far as playability goes. I was so surprised by the many workmanship flaws that I notified MF and accused them of sending a returned itm

As close as I'll ever get to a hand made American MTD. Far exceeds my ability.
