The Kingston AG features a carved alder body, burled maple top, maple neck & is finished in a custom colour that Michael Tobias created to blend nicely with the Purpleheart fingerboard.

The Buzz Feiten Tuning System solves tuning and intonation problems with 2 simple steps:


1. Shelf Nut

Our exclusive Buzz Feiten Tuning System¨ (BFTS) Shelf Nut moves the strings closer to the first fret according to our Patented Formula. This eliminates sharp notes at the first three frets.

Buzz Feiten Tuning System Shelf Nut


Top View : Each Shelf Nut is precision machined from high quality bone for superb tonal response.



Side View : The strings are moved closer to the first fret a precise distance based on the scale length, fret width and string gauge of your guitar. The slight overhang of our nut (the 'Shelf') does this without altering your guitar in any way. So it's even fine for vintage guitars.

2. Intonation
Your guitar's bridge is adjusted according to our Patented Pitch Offsets, creating balanced intonation over the entire fingerboard - every fret - every string.


Your Bridge Is Adjusted to BFTS Pitch Offsets
