As GAS would have it, I've aquired another new bass to hold me over until my new Nordstrand is ready! I called our own Adrian Garcia at Accessbass.com, and he is sending me a new MTD Heir 5 string fretless with a flame maple top and an ebonol board! Really a gorgeous bass! By the way, Adrian is a prince to deal with...if anyone is looking for great service and prices on gear, he's as good as it gets! I've played several Kingstons before, and I loved the raw punchyness (is that a word?) of them, so I hope this will satisfy my Mwahh-craving for a while! I'm really a 4 string guy, but I'm playing a lot of contemporary Christian music that craves that B! I'll probably add a Bart 3 band with the selectable mids to it to keep it flexible on the fly! Can someone here go to Accessbass and post a large picture of it here? I'm a technological moron, and haven't got the whole pic link thing figured out!
