    Are they going after the goth/emo/metal crowd.

    In that case, I just don't think I'm down with the goth lot enough to pull one of those off...if it's your bag, go for it...
  8. even if I'm a metal guy, I don't really like the shape.

    I like the first one
  10. I'd totally play the first one. It kind of reminds me of the Gibson RD Artist, but a bit more subdued. I'm not such a big fan of the second one, unless I was playing in an old-school metal band (which, incidentally, I would love to do). Mike should get these things built in the Kingston factory. I bet they would sell if they were in the same price range as the Kingston Artist.
  11. yeah, odd but cool. very metal!

    I havent really been a fan of these, but I have not played them, and we all know that appearances mean nothing (bongos are amazing).

    Looks like a vintage metal thing going on here. Hey if they play well and sound great (come on its Mike were talking about here...) then go for it. Maybe it can expose some of Mikes products into a Market otherwise owned by Gibson and Fender. Personally though..I would not play either of them. Just not my style!

  16. I guess visually those new designs are an acquired taste.

    Aww, crap. The secret's gotten out!

    I like the first one, in a Thunderbird-left-on-the-dashboard kind of way. I could definitely see it in an awesome G&L Sparkle finish, or that black/multi-color sparkle that PRS did years ago. Very cool.

    If those came in different colours, or with a high gloss finish, and with chrome hardware, and had scale lenghts under 32", I'd probably want to buy one. I like the body shape.

    at namm he had 3 different cuts of those basses.
    I think they were all passive!!
    all flat black
    plus he had a shot scale MTD that was flat black that was killer Like I said I was going to buy one I just never managed to make it back to the both because my work both was so busy !!

    he also hinted to that they might become overseas basses

    but who knows !!
