    $100 off thru Monday evening! $550 shipped. Rates apply as listed below.

    MTD Kingston KZ5 in Transparent Red Upgraded with Nordy Fat Stacks and 3b Preamp. $650 shipped to lower 48 only. AK, HI, PR: add $25.

    Comes from a smoke free, pet free environment. Excellent condition.

    Sorry: no trades, as I have mounting bills and spotty income.

    • Mahogany body with figured maple top, pinstripe sandwich
    • Maple neck with fantastic chocolatey rosewood board
    • MTD smoke chrome hardware, black BBG flattop knobs and Gotoh stack knobs in black
    • Nordstrand Fat Stacks (hum-cancelling)
    • Nordstrand 3b-5b preamp
    • 8 lbs 5 oz !
    I have spent about 12 hours over the past 2 days really trying to get intimate with this beautiful bass: cleaning, setting up and running through my rig: both at practice and during a paid practice/gig.

    There are some strange reflections (NOT imperfections or scratches) that appear in the pictures: this Bass is clean, and there are really just a few minor areas of concern regarding the finish, which I tried to capture:

    • Finger wear under the G string, at end of fretboard and between the pickups
    • Ding on the forearm contour
    • Fingernail shape dent next to output jack
    • Tiny ding on the end of the headstock

    It is an awesome bass! Very responsive, easy to play (super low action on a flat radius? Yes, please!) and cuts through the mix when needed, but sits very well exactly as you want it to. Plus, it’s super light! 8 lbs 5 oz!

    The electronics have been upgraded to Nordstrand Fat Stacks paired to a Nordstrand 3 band preamp (3b-5b). This setup is a giant leap over the stock electronics, so all the hard work has been done! The layout is volume (p/p or passive), mid (p/p for shift), treble/bass stack, blend, and passive tone (before the preamp).

    Looking to get what I put into it. I am willing to foot the shipping. Brand new set of NOS D’Addario 40-120 Prisms (precursor to Pro Steels) installed and will come with another brand new set as well. Comes with a Brand New Road Runner gig bag, and will be packed VERY WELL. I ship quickly and safely.

    With the current discussion regarding PayPal, I am open to other forms of payment: I accept PayPal, Google Pay, Apple Pay and cash...let me know what you want to do.

    Please PM with any question you have.
