Kala’s new Acoustic/Electric Koa uBass

Kala came to Summer NAMM in Nashville this year ready to impress, and it seems they’ve accomplished their goal.

Rick Carlson brought along one of the company’s new uBass models to the show. It’s a handmade Acoustic/Electric Koa model with LR Baggs electronics, made in Kala’s Custom Shop in Petaluma, Ca. And boy is it pretty.

Check out this video of Rick introducing the newest member of the uBass stable at Summer NAMM.

This model sells for $2799 and comes delivered in a tweed hard case. It’s available fretted or fretless. Kala also has a Flame Maple version ($2299) and a Peruvian Walnut version, also $2299.
