The Myrtle California U•BASS® is stunning. The Myrtle top with its rich grain patterns of dark greys and golden browns is an excellent choice of tonewood from both a sonic and an aesthetic standpoint. This U•BASS is all about the wavy, iridescent wood top, but tonally it shares similar traits with Maple, both woods promote clarity and excellent projection and sustain; however, Myrtle tends to have a warmer more rounded sound that adds ideal projection in the lower mids. As a result of these thoughtful design choices, the Myrtle California U•BASS® has a huge deep tone with excellent balance and clarity.
This instrument is a perfect fit for the next-level bass player. Carefully designed, crafted, and set up by our top of the line luthiers at our Petaluma headquarters, each California Solid Body U•Bass is treated with an expert hand and a watchful eye before it leaves our facilities. We use 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! Available in a 4-String fretted model.
With every California U•BASS® order you'll receive:
All California U•BASS® are meant to be strung with proprietary, polyurethane Road Toad Strings.
