    Used in “As new” condition with no marks, dings whatsoever. This bass plays really well and balances perfectly. Not to be confused with the Kingston Saratogas (low-entry level bass) This Original 2003 (EDITED I bought it new in 2005) Saratoga has all the features of the new MTD Handmade Saratogas ($4400 price list for a 4 string) but It is NOT a Custom/Made in USA MTD. PAYPAL ONLY, NO TRADES, SHIPPING TO CONUS ONLY.

    Yes, it works great in all registers!, very ergonomic and nimble bass.
    About the Bass Extender (Drop D, for some) I was using it as a B, no problem in a Top40 band (so no 5 string needed) As far as pictures, I was only allowed to upload 2, I have many more that I would like to share. So if someone can let me know how to add more I would appreciate it.
    Thanks guys!

    IIRC, this is MIK and, from your description, utilizes top-shelf hardware, electronics, woods. The newer Kingston (MIC) offerings are great in their own right but pale in comparison to the earlier Korean models such as your's.

    BTW, the Buzz Feiten system is introduced via an ever-so-slight modification of the zero fret.

    Free bump for a killer and seriously underrated bass. I had one of these years ago that I wish I had kept. Absolutely better in every conceivable way than my CIJ Geddy Lees.

    If my tastes weren't for passive PJs, I'd be taking a real hard look at this one.

    Yes, this is an earlier Saratoga made in Korea.
