First of all, I'm new here.... Hi. Secondly, can anyone recommend MTD basses? Specifically, the Kingston. It seems like quite an instrument. I haven't played one, but it looks like it offers Fender-ish comfort and playability plus a better tuning system, passive humbucker (I'm not fond of actives), ebonol fingerboard and an affordable pricetag. A couple questions to those who have tried one - Are they comfortable? I come from a Fender only background and one of the things I love about Fenders is their extreme comfort levels. They fit like a glove and I CAN'T STAND nosedive. Gibsons, Jacksons and many others basses have given me nodedive problems and that's not cool in my book. Also, what do they sound like? I love fat, passive tone so that's what I'm looking for in a bass. Is the neck comfortable enough for shredding? I prefer thinner J-style necks. Also, what is the difference between ebony and ebonol? I love ebony fretboards (more companies should offer this) but I'm not familiar with fretless bass playing at all. Thanks.
