Kala’s new Bakithi Kumalo Signature Fretless uBass
This beauty is the Bakithi Kumalo Signature Fretless uBass. It showed up recently on the Sweetwater web site for sale at $1,099.00 The BK Signature features:
- Lightweight swamp ash body
- MI-SI ALIGN active preamp system
- Preamp charges in 60 seconds for up to 8 hours of playing time
- Volume control and 2-band EQ
- Custom HIPSHOT tuners
- GRAPH TECH Black TUSQ self-lubricating nut
- Polyurethane strings
- Meets all airline carry-on requirements
- Made in the U.S.A
- Deluxe gig bag with backpack straps included
I guess it makes sense to give BK his own Signature model – he is, after all, one of Kala’s highest profile endorsers.
Not sure how I missed this one.
Anyway, for those of you into specs, here are the particulars:
|Number of Strings
|Number of Frets
||Rosewood, 12 Radius
|Number of Pickups
||No Neck Pickup
||No Middle Pickup
||Passive Shadow Piezo
||Custom Mi Si Align Rechargeable Preamp
|Manufacturer Part Number
Not only that, but it sports Bakithi’s signature on the headstock as well.
Nice job Kala.
