    Okay between the MTD Kingston and MTD Heir, the differences are the extra J neck pickup at the neck for Heir, flamed-mapled top for the Heir and a 200 dollars difference(list price).

    Did I miss anything out?

    i may be wrong, but if you look at pic's of the two, you may notice that the MM pup on the kingston is a little farther from the bridge then the MM pup on the heir :confused:

    Yeah, the MM is closer to the bridge on the Heir.

    One more knob on the heir! :D
  5. It makes sense; the MM pickup is closer partly to allow room for the setup of the J.

    Both are great basses for the money. If I had the money, the Kingston would be one of the 3 basses (Groove Tools 5, Skyline 55-01 the others) I would choose as my first 5.
