    I saw a new MTD that looked similar to the Kingston/Saratoga body style, with upgrades like a maple burl top and wood pickup covers on one of the NAMM pages here...

    I emailed Mike about it and he gave me a little info -

    I'm also wondering if these are built in the same Korean facility as the Kingstons or somewhere else...

    I agree. It looks ace. I'm tempted... I wonder if he does it in girly pink.
