Michael Tobias began his career by doing repairs in The Guitar Shop in Washington D.C in 1974. The early experiences that he gained by fixing a wide variety of instruments, most of them being acoustic, helped him later go one to design and build some of the most impressive electric basses in the world. "The most important thing I learned is that, no matter what the instrument is, it is first and foremost acoustic. If an instrument sounds weak acoustically, adding pick-ups will just amplify its shortcomings," says Michael. "Throughout my career I have tried to apply this principal to everything I build."

Michael's prestigious American MTD basses are incredible instruments that have drawn praise all over the world. Known for their exotic woods, fantastic tone and incredible playability, MTD basses bring out the best in those who play them.

Driven by a desire to offer superb electric basses at a price that everyone can afford, Michael created the MTD Kingston series of basses, which are carefully manufactured to his exact specifications by a high-end, Far East instrument builder. MTD Kingston basses share many of the same design elements and qualities as his handmade American basses, but at a much lower price.

Michael Tobias is a legend in the bass community who's talent and commitment to quality have advanced the art of bass building to a great degree.

Adds Michael, "Thank you for your interest in MTD Kingston. I hope that these basses will bring you satisfaction and enjoyment."

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
