FS: MTD Kingston Artist 5 five string sim2 EBMM SR
Great bass. Barely played. I got it for the 35" scale but I realize I prefer four strings and neck pickups.
Pristine shape. Has all of the nice modern upgrades that you would expect from MTD, but still in the StingRay ballpark. Has an asymmetrical neck, which is very comfortable if you find 5 string necks too big.
The MTD Kingston Artist 5-String features a medium weight, ergonomically carved basswood body and a bolt-on Eastern hard rock Maple neck. . Custom made MTD bridge and tuners in black. Like all fretted Kingston basses, the Artist utilizes the Buzz Feiten Tuning System.
24 medium jumbo frets
Zero fret 1 3/4" wide
MTD bridge, 3/4" (19mm) spacing
One-piece neck with satin polyester finish
Carved basswood body
Four controls: volume plus 3 band EQMTD exposed pole alnico MM pickups
Outdoor pics (actual color is very difficult to capture)
Asking for (475.00) (425.00) 400.00 shipped in the US. Internationals can inquire, I can ship with the neck off. Obviously the cost will be more because of shipping.
Paypal is cool, if you want to send a money order that works too. Let me know if you have any questions!
I would say the color is a teal that is more blue than green if that makes sense.
Barely 9 lbs. Updated trades.
Also open to EBMM, Lakland, and Warwick trades
Bump for price drop. Seriously folks, this bass will give a US EBMM a run for its money. Great platform to upgrade/tweak too.
BTW, it appears to be an '08 MIK which, IMO, beats the pants off the current MIC offerings...and those are no slouches, either!
Definitely in the same tone ballpark. Although the Ray's unique preamp obviously contributes. I believe the humbucker on a Ray is wired in series instead of parallel? I believe this is parallel so that would affect the difference as well. As a EBMM fan I agree with the points about ergonomics and weight. This is a great alternative. The build quality and playability of this instrument are superb.
Just looking for a sale now. Picked up a Warwick Corvette $$ that I am enjoying.
Bump for pice drop. 400 shipped
