The Kingston Saratoga Deluxe picks up where the old-school Saratoga left off, with active electronics, a flamed maple top, and overall (gig-friendly) versatility.
In true MTD style, it maintains favored ergonomics (asymmetrical neck), the Quick Release Bridge, the Buzz Feiten Tuning System, and an Active/Passive switch.
The Active/Passive switch couples the great sounding passive hum-cancelling J pickups directly to the output and engages the passive tone control in tandem, with the volume pot. When in the active mode, the 3-band preamp takes over, with Bass, Mid, and Treble controls, offering cut/boost at just the right frequencies.
