    This thing is just gorgeous. It's a Kinal MK21 which is new, flawless, and masterfully hand-crafted. This electric bass made of 7 different woods with a natural finish. It has an incredibly clear and deep tone and the passive/active preamp allows for a wide range of sound sculpting. With a 34-inch scale and a neck with a satiny finish that is smooth and fast, this bass has superb playability.

    The retail price of the bass, with all the features listed below and including the $200 custom hard case, is $3,750.

    Sorry, no trades.

    If this bass was a little lighter weight...I’d buy it in a heartbeat.

    Isn't it a beauty? ...Another impressive piece by Mike Kinal. I suppose the actual weight speaks for itself, but the balance makes this bass feel great.

    Worth every cent.
    I have two Kinal basses. My MK-21 is one of two go-to instruments.
