    i just picked up a Kingston 5 for a really good price. i had never played one before today and was immediately impressed with how it played, so i just had to buy it.

    in fact this is the first time i have ever played an MTD brand (Korean, American or otherwise). i have played a bunch of Pedullas and the neck on the Kingston is very similar to the Pedulla necks (with the exception that it is also assymetrical).

    Having never played an American MTD, how does the Kingstons neck feel in comparison. Overlooking the obvious things such as superior fretting and craftsmanship does the American version feel similar with similar dimensions to the Korean MTDs?
