Been looking for the best bass/modding platform for under a grand. (I ruled out Spector so don't mention it. Spector is it's own beast and doesn't sound like these other two). Ok. So, I've been told that the MTD Kingston Heirs are one of the BEST modding platforms out there. That they rival, and surpass Laklands Skyline 55-01 in build quality. So, in lieu of the info I've read quite a few times, I'd like to hear what the masses here on TB have to say about this. I've owned a 55-02 before and liked it alot. My first MTD will be here tomorrow and I will have some first-hand experience then, but the mods have to wait a month. Remember, this poll DOES NOT include electronics. Just the overall build quality of the body, neck, frets, trussrod, weight etc... Thanks.
