Kala’s new Bubinga uBass.


Bubinga. A wood you know and love if you own a boutique bass. And now you can have your uBass made out of it.

Kala just announced it is making the uBass available in Bubinga wood.

Here’s what the company has to say about the new uBass:

The 21” scale bass features distinctive grain patterns of Bubinga wood on the top, back and sides and comes with a custom fitted padded logo gig bag.  Other specifications include a mahogany neck, rosewood fingerboard and bridge, Exclusive Hipshot Licensed black anodized tuners, Graph Tech Labs™ Black TUSQ Nut, and a Truss rod.

The company says the uBass will retail for $499, with a gig bag. No word on when it’ll show up at retailers though.
