It is our pleasure to introduce the MTD Saratoga Norm Stockton Artist Edition bass. After years of Norm looking for a solution to having to carry several basses on the road, we have collaborated to create a signature model that is versatile enough to fill his sonic needs as well as the needs of any touring player. The bass has the ability to produce the traditional MTD sound,  a great modern slap tone, a more traditional warm rock finger tone, the Jaco bridge pickup tone and a myriad of others.

This collaboration was achieved by listening and experimenting with the wood combinations, construction and electronics. The body of the Norm Stockton Artist Edition bass is a quilted maple top on an alder body. The neck is maple with a birdseye maple fingerboard and titanium inserts in the neck, as well as a laminated peg head to help control the voice. This bass has a pickup and preamp system by Bartolini that consists of two dual coil humbucking pickups that can be split from double to single coil that is an active split with no volume drop.

The Norm Stockton Artist Edition MTD is the product of all of our efforts to satisfy the needs of the touring and session musician. The strength in tone and versatility of this instrument combine the vision and standards of quality that Norm Stockton and MTD practice and believe in. It’s been a pleasure to work with Norm to develop this wonderful 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
