    Hello everyone! I'm new here so I hope I'm doing this right. I'm about to purchase a new 5-string bass and need some honest opinions to help me decide which way to go. Right now, I have it narrowed down to two basses. The first is a Lakland 55-02 deluxe, and the other is an MTD Kingston Z5. I need some help deciding since I have no where nearby to try these out before buying. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    you really can't go wrong with either one. Both are gonna be bad a$$. Music style/preference? Tone goals? then those who have or do use them can help you better. fwiw I like Lakland, but I'm a simple hard rock, hard country type of guy. Have fun & try try try to take a test drive if you can.

    You are weighing up two much loved instruments. There is no guarantee you won't get a lemon, but if you can't try either, my advice is.... compare features and prices, get a good return option, and rock hard!!!:bassist::bassist::bassist:

    I'd give the nod to Lakland, as you'll find the first thing that folks do when they get an MTD is upgrade the pickups and preamp.
