This one breaks my heart to sell. It's a Kawai KRB-105
bass. Made in Japan. It's got an absolutely stunning flamed koa body
. Not just a flamed koa top...but solid block of flamed koa. Carbon fiber neck
with a subtle (but visible) weave.
This is the one I jokingly call my "poor-man's Fodera Monarch." The electronics have been swapped out for EMG
P-J pickups and 2-band EQ. Strings are Fodera Vic Wooten sig nickel-rounds. Super low action and very responsive. The sound is deep and round. Very even, balanced tone.
Schaller bridge, tuners, and strap-locks:
Phenomenal grain in the body:
Visible carbon weave in the neck:
Comes with Tolex case. The case is designed for a Pedulla Raptor, but the Kawai fits perfectly.
Asking $575 shipped
anywhere in continental USA. This is on the higher side for a Kawai bass, but this one is worth it. You'll never see koa with flame like this. The neck is a dream. The playability and tone are nonpareil. And the upgraded EMG electronics and case sweeten the deal.
