Maximum tonal versatility that's a joy to play.
The MTD Kingston Super is the perfect combination of beauty and brawn. The stunning carved body and premium finishes perfectly support an incredibly powerful electronics package.
In addition to a 3-band active preamp, Michael Tobias included a 3-way mini-switch for each MM-style pickup. In the down position the pickups are in hum-cancelling series mode, which gives a big, bold, punchy sound. In the middle position the pickups are in single coil mode, making them sound bright and twangy. In the up position the pickups are in hum-cancelling parallel mode and they sound bright and sweet, with a slightly lower output than series mode. When both pickups are in single coil mode they are hum-cancelling when the blend pot is centered.
That is a lot of tonal flexibility. Michael has given you a massive pallet of sonic colors. So get yourself a MTD Kingston Super and start painting!
