MTD Kingston Heir Electric Bass Guitar; Michael Tobias Designed!
Kingston Heir bass guitars are top notch. Michael Tobias is a pioneer in the Art of Bass Design and it really shows with his line of MTD basses. Using large pole, dual humbuckers (the same used in the infamous Kingston Artist) and an additional J
(jazz) bass pickup, the Kingston Heir has been blessed by its manufacturer with a sound, feel and playability that is unmatched by basses at its price point.
A master of design, Mike Tobias has put more of himself into these basses than any other production line bass available. The MTD's Kingston basses are as close to a handmade Mike Tobias bass as you can get.
