    Just picked this one up from another TB'er, unfortunately, I can't keep it at the moment. MTD Kingston Super 4 with upgraded Bartolini MM Pickups. It comes in Dr. Browns burst finish. It's a really nice bass. Ships in a hardshell case. It is in excellent condition.

    Some Info from the website:
    The MTD Kingston Super is the perfect combination of beauty and brawn. The stunning carved body and premium finishes perfectly support an incredibly powerful electronics package. How powerful, you ask? Well, in addition to a 3-band active preamp, Michael Tobias included a threeway mini-switch for each MM-style pickup. In the down position the pickups are in humcancelling series mode, which gives a big, bold, punchy sound. In the middle position the pickups are in single coil mode, making them sound bright and twangy. In the up position the pickups are in humcancelling parallel mode and they sound bright and sweet, with a slightly lower output than series mode. When both pickups are in single coil mode they are humcancellng when the blend pot is centered.
