  2. The MTD Kingston Artist basses were created for the player who is looking for the aggressive sound of the large pole, dual humbucking pickups made popular in the 70's and 80's. A perfect companion to your "J" Bass or "P" Bass, the Artist incorporates many of the superior design elements found on MTD's revered American series of instruments - but at a fraction of the cost. Carefully constructed using high quality Basswood, Eastern Hard Rock Maple and beautifully finished in a stunning high gloss, the Kingston Artist was equipped to meet the demands of any serious player

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
