  2. The Kingston Heir basses were designed for the player looking for an extremely versatile instrument. Using the same large pole, dual humbucking pickups as the Kingston Artist in addition to an exposed pole "J" bass pick up, the Heir can grind and bite or simply serve up the warm classic sounds bassists cherish. Like all MTD Kingston Series instruments, the Heir incorporates many superior design elements found on MTD's revered American instruments. It is carefully constructed using high quality Ash, Eastern Hard Rock Maple and beautifully adorned with a Flamed maple top. This has a very unusual finish that has a brown/gold colour that beautifully compliments the maple fingerboard. The bass features big, clear notes and the three band eq really opens the tonal palette of this fine instrument.

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
