Since this is my first post I just want to say hey to everyone. I know topics like this probably get a little irritating after a while, but I've done all the searching I can and still have some questions. Sorry in advance for this being pretty lengthy. For the past 6 months I've been using some $100 Rogue that my parents bought for my little brother for Christmas. The reason they went so cheap is because they didn't even know if he would stick with it. Well, he didn't, but I have. I've only played a few different basses at the GC by here, and from what I've played, I liked the tones of a MIM P (I didn't try a MIA) and a Stingray (I'm a Fugazi nut, so I had to try it). I also tried a Groove Tools 5, and while the sound wasn't exactly what I was looking for, I found it very comfortable. I'm probably going to get a 5 string just so I could have more options if I ever need them. As for the Kingston, I haven't found one to try yet. Iv'e found that a lot of people who like P's also like the Kingstons. I know they both have somewhat wide necks (which I like), but how do the tones compare? Seeing as how the MTD has a MM style pickup, does it come at all close to sounding like a Stingray? One thing I've been hearing about the Kingston is how good the B string is. When I played the GT5, the B felt pretty loose, although that's probably because of me not being use to a 5. So does the Kingston's feel pretty tight? I think that's all I have for now. Thanks a lot for even reading this far .
