  1. Have yet to see a thread dedicated to these beauties, so thought I'd start one. Show 'em off, boys & girls!

    This one is for sale (I'll probably get another Kinal custom made when I sell it), or for trade for the right bass:

    I love the look of the mk body style and may order one someday.

  8. That's beautiful! Did I see that bass for sale on the Bass Northwest site some years ago?

    My guitarist friend from Vancouver did a gig and workshop this past weekend and he let me try his Kinal guitar. It was gorgeous and it played really nicely. Since I seldom touch the guitar I usually stumble on the strings but not this time. So not only does Mike build great basses he also builds amazing guitars!

    Let's get this party started!
     
  11. Did someone say Kinal party!? Kinals don't get enough love and are totally deserving of a two year old thread bump :)

    Serial M30 freshly back from getting some luthier loving... Removed the finish from the neck and had it oiled, fretboard was beginning to lift at the nut so got that glued back in place, replaced the tarnished chrome knobs with black knobs and while putting it back together gave it a killer setup... Am in love, again :) More images in the gallery here -

    Gorgeous. I'll post mine later. I have gone through four of his basses, and two are still in the stable and not going anywhere. One is tied for my #1 with my Sadowsky NYC, and the other is a close runner up.
