Decked out in the electric-inspired style of Fender's California Player series, the Kingman Bass delivers the full, deep acoustic projection and comfortable playing feel you expect from Fender. Named for a famous stop along US Route 66, the short-scale Kingman Bass offers a gloss black finish, smooth-playing mahogany Jazz Bass® neck and convenient cutaway for easy access to the upper reaches of the fingerboard. This bass is built for one thing, and one thing only - to rock.
Designed for players, this 30"-scale bass is slightly shorter than others, giving it a slinkier playing feel while simultaneously making it easier to play seated or take out on the road. The Kingman Bass features optimized scalloped "X"-bracing under the solid spruce top for reduced mass and superior resonance, a Graph Tech® NuBone® nut and saddle for greater sustain and a Fishman® preamp system that makes it easy to plug in without sacrificing the bass's natural acoustic tone. The lightweight mahogany Jazz Bass neck features a comfortable, easy-to-play, slim-taper "C"-shaped profile that's suitable for any playing style, and its walnut fingerboard and bridge further augment this instrument's vibrant tone.
With its superb playability, distinctive looks and unmistakable Fender vibe, the Kingman Bass is an instrument for a new generation of bassists.
