Hey all! My friend uses a MTD 535 and I am looking for an inexpensive alternative. It definitely needs to be a 5-string. The bass I currently use is a 6-string SR 506 Soundgear by Ibanez, but this is my church's bass and I want something for myself. I really love playing this bass and I am wondering how a MTD compares because I love the sound of my friends MTD and he swears up and down on the playability of MTD's. I saw some fairly cheap used MTD Kingston 5's on the guitar center website. Looking for opinions on these. What do y'all think? Would a $700 MTD Kingston 5 be worth it? Would this lower priced MTD be a step up from the current bass I use? Any info is good info! Thank you.
