    This is a very cool little bass, similar to the Kala solid body model. This one is fretted (though a fretless version exists). It has a 9-volt active Shadow pickup system w/ a V/T/B control setup that offers a broad range of tones from hot/bright to round/mellow. I upgraded from the off-white Thundergut strings to Silver Rumblers and I found the tone, feel and intonation to be greatly improved (plus they look cooler). Scale is 23". Very fun little bass for travel or practice but with serious enough tone you could use it as a backup in a pinch (ya know, depending on your style, etc.)

    I had an acoustic Kala with the passive shadow system and this one is far more flexible IMO with much higher gain (plus no hollowbody feedback). Condition is great minus one little finish flaw on the lower waist of the body, minor enough that I didn't make an issue of it.

    $175 shipped (CONUS). Ships with a gig bag. Check my feedback. Shoot me questions. Thanks for looking!

    Nope. This one is fretted. Thanks for asking! (Description updated.)

    Given the lack of interest and the fact I had fun plucking on this thing last night, I've decided to hang onto it rather than sell it on the cheap.
