Kingston CRB

Kingston CRB Series

Starting at $375 with free shipping to continental USA address

The CRB (Classic Rock Bass) is a wonderful instrument with a vintage tone. It was designed by Michael Tobias to have all the great design qualities of his more expensive basses.  It was important to him to be able to offer the MTD tone, the ergonomic design and the Buzz-Feiten tuning even on his most basic model.  The CRB has a 34” neck scale, a proprietary MTD designed “P” style pickup, two controls for volume and tone, and an asymmetrical one piece maple neck.

Z Series (4-string only)

Starting at $820 with free shipping to continental USA address

We have quite a few Z4’s with rosewood fretboards.  As you may have heard, rosewood is undergoing more trade restrictions and will be increasingly hard to get.  This is not technically a legacy product as we are going to still offer it as part of the Z line but our overstock now means savings to you.

MTD Kingston Rubicon 6-22

The Rubicon Guitar

Starting at $550 with free shipping to continental USA address

Few people know this, but Michael Tobias is actually a guitar player.  The Rubicon shows off Mike’s design sensibilities in a solid guitar at a reasonable price.  This line features all the great ergonomics and tone he learned from 40 years of bass building.   These wonderfully flexible guitars were lost in the noise of a crowded guitar market.  It’s time to find them good homes.
