    Kinal MK21 5 String

    LOOKS LIKE THIS ONE IS SOLD - BASS IS ON HOLD PENDING PAYMENT.


    I've priced this to move it - not to further negotiate a lower price. This bass should easily fetch ~$1500, so I'm firm on my price. I've sold enough other basses to pay for my new build, so I'll entertain trade offers for this one. Must be a wide nut and 18.5 -19mm wide string spacing 5 string bass.

    It's in excellent condition except for one slight impression on the back of the neck. It's at the 3rd fret, behind the E string. See the photo with the pen pointing to it. As you can see by the size of the impression compared to the pen point, its' REALLY small but you can feel it if you know it's there, otherwise I doubt you'd even know.

    Specs:
    Pickups:
    Lindy Fralin J's
    Preamp: Nordstrand - 9 volt
    Scale length: 34”,
    Body wood: Swamp Ash
    Neck: Hard-rock maple, 6 Bolt, string through body option
    Headstock: Maple cap on back of headstock
    Frets: 21
    Scale: 34"
    Hardware: Hipshot tuners/bridge
    Width at the nut: 1.82"
    Width of neck at the last fret: 3"
    String Spacing: 19mm at the bridge
    Weight: 9 lbs, 6 oz.

    Neck profile:
    I'd describe it as fairly thin (compared to a Fender Precision Bass for example) with a flattened D shape. The specific measurements: At the first fret, the neck is .778" (19.75mm) thick and at the 12 fret it is .937" (23.8mm) thick.

    Will ship for free to CONUS in a brand new Access padded gig bag.

    Loved my Kinal. These are way underrated and this is a rediculous price. GLWTS

    Yes, it was his bass previously. The action is pretty low with no buzzing at all.

    Do you know what the radius is? Also, can you describe the neck profile?

    I honestly have no idea how to measure the radius. If you can tell me how to do this, I'd be happy to attempt.

    As for describing the profile, I'd describe it as fairly thin (compared to a Fender Precision Bass for example) with a flattened C shape, but here are the specific measurements: At the first fret, the neck is .778" (19.75mm) thick and at the 12 fret it is .937" (23.8mm) thick.

    Honestly, if this bass was a little lighter I'd buy it. I'm in the market for a white jazz bass at this price point and I'm a Kinal endorser. I have two of his basses currently, have owned two others that are no longer with me. They are my #1 instruments. My only wish is that they were lighter. My next bass is going to be a lightweight jazz style.
