    1. MTD ZX 5 - $900 Shipped
    [DEL]2. MTD Kingston Heir 5 - $600 Shipped[/DEL] SOLD!
    3. MTD Kingston Artist 5 (w/Bass Mods BEQ-12 Preamp upgrade) - $400 Shipped

    Like R. Kelly, I'm cleaning out my closets. These guys have never been gigged nor abused. They are 3 "like new" MTD Kingston Series Basses. The pictures and links should answer all questions.

    1. The ZX 5 ($900 obo)

    This ZX was an in-house repair (I was told it was dropped at the factory) now sporting a NEW, factory installed 2010 neck (it has 2 cosmetic blemishes; finish cracks at the neck pickup and at the lower bout - SEE PIX). This instrument functions as new. It also has Dunlop strap locks.

    3. The Kingston Artist 5 w/Bass Mods BEQ-12 preamp ($400 obo)

    This bass' stock preamp was upgraded to a Bass Mods BEQ-12 9v preamp. The pickup blend knob basically functions as a 2nd volume knob as there is only one stock pickup on the bass.

    Do you have the original pre-amp with the Artist by any chance?

    I no longer have it. It was actually dead on arrival so I replaced it and tossed the orig.

    No case. Securely packed and shipped. There is nothing wrong with any of these basses. They have all seen less action than the basses on display at your local Guitar Center. I replaced the Artist pre-amp because it was originally DOA. The new pre-amp is an upgrade. Check out the tones from the provided link or YouTube.
