Unplugging With Style

Decked out in the electric-inspired style of Fender's California Player series, the Kingman Bass delivers the full, deep acoustic projection and comfortable playing feel you expect from Fender. Named for a famous stop along US Route 66, the short-scale Kingman Bass offers a gloss black finish, smooth-playing mahogany Jazz Bass® neck and convenient cutaway for easy access to the upper reaches of the fingerboard. This bass is built for one thing, and one thing only—to rock.

California Series Acoustic KINGMAN™ BASS

Unique Fender Body Shape

This bass' unique cutaway body shape is a Fender exclusive, giving it a vintage-inspired look with a modern twist.

Solid Spruce Top

Spruce is the standard modern tone wood for fashioning the tops of acoustic guitars and other acoustic instruments—few woods can beat its strength, brightness and dynamic range.

Fishman Preamp and Tuner

Complete with tuner, frequency (bass, middle and treble) and phase controls, this collaboration in preamp design is specially voiced for each California Series body shape.

Matching Painted 4-in-line Headstock

The matching painted 4-in-line headstock on this bass is immediately recognizable and exudes classic Fender vibe. It also provides considerable strength and resistance to “whiplash” that can severely damage most traditional acoustics.

Mahogany Jazz Bass Neck

The supremely comfortable slim-taper "C"-shaped mahogany neck has outstanding fret-hand feel that's suitable for any playing style and enhances the overall volume and liveliness of the bass.

Walnut Fingerboard and Bridge

With a pleasingly dark look, smooth feel and vibrant tone, walnut is an excellent tone wood for crafting quality acoustic instrument bridges and fingerboards.
