Ukelele company Kala Brand Music made heads turn five years ago with the introduction of the U-Bass, a ukelele sized bass with proprietary polyurethane strings. The company is now celebrating the five year milestone by introducing the USA Acoustic-Electric Exotic wood U-Bass series.
Built in Petaluma, California, the new models feature figured bodies of either Hawaiian Koa, Flame Maple, or Peruvian Walnut. Their mahogany necks are shaped with a vintage P-style neck contour, then topped with a rosewood fingerboard. Similar to previous U-Bass incarnations, the USA Exotic series has a 21-inch scale and 16 frets.
Each bass is fitted with custom LR Baggs U-Bass electronics designed specifically for the U-Bass. Other features include custom Hipshot tuners, a custom Kala inlay, and a rosewood bridge.
The Kala USA Acoustic-Electric Exotic Wood U-Basses ship in deluxe tweed hardshell cases. They’re available for order now with prices ranging from $2299 to $2799.
