Pulling inspiration from the original California Series U•BASS®, this innovative short-scale bass is a whole new take on the U•BASS®. Its sleek off-set body shape is contoured for balance and comfort.

four string fretless
This is my fourth Kala U-Bass. The others are all hollow body basses with the silicon strings, and all were great. This one is definitely a keeper. I use them all in live shows and this will be no exception to that. Great tone and fantastic feel. The weight balance and neck access are perfect. I thought it might be difficult to handle because it's really small, but it feels very natural. I play all different neck lengths so that wasn't a challenge at all and the fretless sound is so distinct. side note, It wasn't difficult to find a strap for it due to its length. It was about the same as all the other basses I have pretty much. I did add strap locks and it was an easy little mod. The soft case it comes with is very nice. I still would buy a hard case if they make one eventually, but the soft is decent.
