    Price:
    1475
    Strings:
    5
    Location:
    California
    Kinal MK-21 5-String in damn near mint condition. I cannot find a mark on her and the color combo is stunning in person.
    Ash body, maple neck and fingerboard.
    Nut width is 1-13/16"
    Scale length is 34"
    String spacing is 19mm at the bridge
    J-style pickups (Fralins) with Nordstrand preamp (Volume, master tone, blend, bass, treble, mid level and frequency)
    Includes a RoadRunner soft case

    She is hefty, coming in at 9.7 pounds on my USPS scale and built with amazing craftsmanship. Mike does great work out of Canada. I am in love with the looks and sound, but would like something with a thinner neck.

    $1475 via paypal/venmo and shipped CONUS via UPS insured ground.
    For an extra $75, I will put it in a brand new case for safe travels.

    Trades: 4 and 5 string basses with thin necks. Mostly interested in a Dingwall or old Warwick Fortress. Also open to Zon, Pedulla, Roscoe, Musicman Sterling, Spector.... I prefer wenge necks and try to avoid painted and gloss finish. For the right deal I can add $, other basses or gear. Cheers!

    Love it. That finish reminds me of a translucent white StingRay I custom ordered in the early 90s.

    Very excellent basses...most underrated and underpriced instruments built on the face of the Earth.

    If I was in the market for another 5-string I wouldn't be able to get the money out of my pocket fast enough for this bass.

    Amazing bass. If it was lighter I'd buy it!

    This is still here? Really?

    For all the folks that don't know, this bass was hand built ENTIRELY by Mike Kinal himself. There are no other cooks in the kitchen. He does 100% of the work himself and that's why the basses are such quality, tone monsters.

    Everyone I've ever played has been exceptional.

    The most bass you will ever get for a mere $1600.

    Honestly, if this bass weighed a little less I'd buy it. I know it's a smoking bass. My Kinals are my #1's.

    Don't know if you've seen this:

    My Kinal was one of the best basses I've ever owned. I found my neck a bit chunky to and had a tech sand it down for me. Food for thought. GLWTS
