Picking an instrument is such a personal choice and for some the understated, natural, elegant looking Maple top California U•BASS is the perfect look. Going against the grain is literally what gives Flame Maple its beautiful perpendicular, undulating, almost iridescent stripes. In just the right light and angle - they almost glow.
We've taken that beautiful striping and highlighted it with red and orange and yellow which makes the markings "pop" like tiger stripes - then covered the body in gloss. We have never offered anything like this before and it is a one-off.
Every California U•BASS boasts exceptional low-end and outstanding craftsmanship which makes this, and any other model, a perfect fit for the next-level bass player. This U•BASS is handmade in California using custom-made parts, including the Kala + LR Baggs preamp that delivers a huge low end and versatility. This custom preamp lets the California U•BASS produce the bass tone that the U•BASS is known for, plus clarity in the mid-range and upper registers. Plug-in and experience the full range of what the U•BASS has to offer!
This California U•BASS is considered a blem because of color bleed around the edges.
Available in a 4 string fretted model. All California U•BASS come with a FREE Deluxe Custom U•BASS® Gig Bag.
All California U•BASS® are meant to be strung with proprietary, polyurethane Road Toad Strings.
Kala Round Wounds, Flatwounds, and High C Strings will not work on the California Solid Body U•BASS.
