    ***PRICE DROP TO $800 SHIPPED. SEE LAST POST FOR DETAILS!!!!!***

    ***PICS IN SECOND POST***

    ***I AM OPENING THIS BACK UP FOR TRADES FOR ANY 5-STRING BASS. NO AMPS, CABS OR ACCESSORIES, PLEASE.***

    Up for sale or for trade is my recently acquired MTD Kingston Z5. I had always wanted to try these basses, and I have been really impressed with it so far. It is lightweight with a great neck and a fantastic look for a bass in this price range. The tone is modern and growly, which is why I am selling it. I LOVE the tone of this bass, but it just doesn't work in my current band setting. Here are the specs:



    *Rosewood fretboard

    *35" scale 5 string

    *24 medium jumbo frets

    *Zero fret 1 3/4" wide, 5 string

    *MTD quick release bridge, 3/4" (19mm) spacing

    *One-piece neck w/satin polyester finish

    *Carved mahogany body with maple burl top

    *Controls are volume, blend, treble, midrange, bass

    *MTD active wood covered soap bar pickups.

    *Shielded electronics compartment

    *Case Included in Sale.

    *Strap pegs are compliant with Dunlop straplocks (I added these after purchase. They also function well with a normal strap.)

    This is a GREAT deal on a virtually brand new bass including case. Paypal or postal money order only. No international shipping.


    Condition has not changed since I bought it just a few weeks ago.

    Those Z's seem cool, too bad I missed the Chicago GTG, I could have checked one out.
    I'm starting to get very interested.
    Good luck with the sale and BUMP to the Top

    you know, i've been a bass player for years now and everytime I see an ad people says, how great the growl is on their bass.... and i cn't seem to figure out exactly what they mean by growl... can someone explain it to me? I understand the sounds of bass, mid, and treble...but what the heck is growl?....Nice bass by the way, i love the case.

    I had been thinking about trying to trade my JO5 recently UNTIL I took it to band rehearsals last night. I'm not sure what I was thinking. :D
     
  10. If this was a Z4 I'd be all over it.

    Free Bump!
     
  11. If only it was a fretless I'd be all over it :( do they even make a fretless in this model? Argh..

    Nice bass though.

    Two weeks is long enough. Off to ebay.....

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dl...MESE:IT&viewitem=&item=260051798339&rd=1&rd=1

    I may be working a trade, but this is still for sale until that goes through. I will make tb'ers this deal: This bass is now for sale to TB members for $800 shipped in the continential US. This deal will only last until I get a bid on the ebay auction, then you will have to go there bid like everyone else. I am still open for trades and may cancel this if the current trade goes through. This is a great deal, and I am stupid for letting it go this low. I'm just tired of dealing with it I guess.

    Currently 8 watchers on ebay, but no bids yet. I have spoken to two TBers about possible trades, but neither has committed yet. Still available until I either get a commitment from one of the potential trades or a bid on ebay.

    Still no bidders on ebay, but over 20 watching the auction. If anyone here is considering this bass, now is the time. My deal stands until I get that first bid. My last bump will be tomorrow morning.

    Man, I was a day late and a couple bucks short the last go around for this bass. Now, I just got a cabinet.

    guy, I could swing a trade plus over half of what you're asking. If you're interested, I'll PM the particulars. I'd love to work something out with you.
