A while back, I played an MTD Kingston that I was very impressed with. The tone was great, especially for a passive bass. How does the Heir compare? I know it has the extra single coil pickup in the neck position, plus the MM style humbucker. Turning down the neck pickup, will it get you that MM style sound that the Kingston reproduces well enough? How does the neck pickup contribute to the tone? Or detract from it? anyone know a place I can get some sound clips? I don't know if 35" scale 5 string is working for me, I think I may have made a mistake buying my BTB. I'm considering trying to find a trade for one of these in 4 strings.
