Man, I can't wait for these to arrive! How 'bout y'all??
That red one is delicious.
looks like a candy apple, those basses rule.
I bought that Blue Active Kingston 5 at the NAMM show, great sounding bass and very well put together.
I just sold it to another TB'er here - Ironbass, the wide spacing at the bridge and the single humbucker just weren't quite for me, too used to my Spectors
It's a great bass though, but I wasn't playing it at all, so I figured I'd move it out to someone who would play the thing.
September delivery on the new Active Kingston/Heir line according to MTD.
And I am already saving my pennies for a sunburst fretless Heir 5 with the rosewood(ish) fingerboard.
What are those 'boards really made of? Is that phenolic?
I'm not aware of the current price of the Kingston. What are these new ones going for?
...just what I need, another item on the GAS list...
In the new Bassics Mag, there is a pic of me playing one of those red ones at NAMM. They are really nice. Glad the pickguard is gone
A bit OT but how do the Kingstons sound, are they in any way similar to a Music Man??
I've got one (an older one) with a maple fretboard and a Bartolini NTMB preamp. The sound is very Stingray-ish. The slap tone KILLS.
Sorry to hijack, but does anyone know the MSRP for the Heir?
Hey, looks like Bass Central's got some pictures of the new active Kingstons/Heirs:
Lookin' good! Especially the Translucent Cherry Heir... mmmmm.
Are they being made with ash or alder bodies now? It sure doesn't look like basswood any longer.
i really wish they made a six string version, that would be sweet.
Man, i wish i still had my old K5. Pre-zero fret. most comfortable bass i've played. Mine survived the seattle earthquake (YEAH BassNW!! mine was still standing in the shipping area next to a bunch that were ruined).... I should've waited 2 years for the active ones... It seems like a killer choice for under $800 or something close to that... Used ones will probably keep most of their value if taken care of....
Yup.... the PG needed to go.
COOL, thank god they dumped that wierd ass lookin pickguard...
I think I prefer them WITH the pickguard.
Now all they gotta do is cover up those exposed poles in the pickups!
Huh, I don't mind the exposed poles one bit... But, that PG literally drove me away from a Kingston.
yeah I think it's good you can go back to Jamaica now..............................
