    Comments about MTD Kingston Artist Bass Guitar:

    In 30 years of playing bass, this is my #1 fave bass. It has it all. The tones are easy to dial in,funk, classic, mellow, funk, thunder- you have it. Plays amazing-the asymetrical neck is as comfy as you'll ever find. (LOVE the maple fretboard!)Very lightwieght, top notch electronics, awesome looks. This is the real stuff by Michael Tobias- not to be confused with the "toby" junk out there. I have owned warwick,fender, schecter,ltd,gibson yamaha and dean basses and MTD is my only choice now! I play nearly a 100 gigs a year and my MTDs never give me any hassels and work as well now as they did out of the box.....don't botherlooking at the other stuff, buy one thats gonna last. You'll be money ahead in the long run.

    Comments about MTD Kingston Artist Bass Guitar:

    I work at the local guitar center, and so have lots of time to play with all kinds of things that I want and cannot afford. I've been an ernie ball enthusiast for a long time, but I might have found a new favorite brand today. This bass compares to basses four to five hundred dollars more. It sounds very full and amazing, the active electronics on this bass I find shapes the sound better than the actives on my ibanez. Overall, I'm extremely impressed. Not the best bass for the money, this bass is a steal. Worth every penny and then some.
