Few people know that Mike Tobias is a life-long guitar player! The design and development of the Rubicon guitar has been simmering for years. Mike has long built custom guitars for high profile special clients in his shop. The Kingston version became a reality in 2012 and after many samples, consultations, tests, and trials, the Kingston Rubicon took its place in the MTD family of great instruments.
The Rubicon guitar is beautiful in appearance and has all the player enhancements that Michael Tobias is known for in his bass design. The Rubicons feature an ergonomically carved body, asymmetrical maple bolt-on neck, compound fingerboard radius, sustain-enhancing bridge systems, Buzz Feiten tuning system for total intonation anywhere on the fretboard, and incredible MTD tone.
