    I just recieved mail from Mike Tobias about why my Kingston feel different than another, and he replied that the basses are manufactured very similar way than he does his American MTD's. No CNC machinery is used to cut necks or bodies to exact measurements, they are hand carved!

    Of course they are carved by some Korean workers, but it seems like those people know their stuff since the quality is so high.

    Anyways, this leads to the fact that all the Kingstons feel a bit different, so you buy the one you have liked.
