Kingman™ Bass
€639.99

Inspired by the iconic designs of Fender electric guitars, California Player acoustics evoke the west coast spirit of adventure and freedom, inviting musicians to explore their individual creativity and disrupt the status quo.

Crafted with an X-braced solid spruce top and sapele back and sides, the compact mid-sized auditorium body of the Kingman™ Bass produces a deep, punchy, and articulate tone and features a cutaway for convenient access to the upper frets. The bound nato neck is elegantly appointed with block inlays and is designed with a slim "C"-shaped Jazz Bass® profile, an easy-to-play short 30" scale length, comfortable 1.5" nut width, and a 4-in-line headstock for a distinctive look born from Fender's electric bass DNA. Other notable details include open-gear vintage-style tuning machines for smooth, accurate tuning, a GraphTech® NuBone® nut and saddle for focused fundamental tone, and a Fishman® Presys preamp system that allows detailed fine-tuning of the bass's amplified sound when performing or recording. A deluxe gig bag is included.

Bold, eye-catching and unique, California Series instruments make no compromises balancing effortless playability, superior sound, and standout style for those who aspire to play something different.

Unique Fender Body Shape

A refined and modernized evolution of the historical 1960s model, the Newporter is a proprietary Fender design whose mid-size shape and versatile voice is well-suited for many musical styles and players.

Solid Spruce Top

An acoustic guitar’s top is a key contributing component to its production of tone, and a solid top provides optimal resonance, volume and dynamic range. Spruce is a popular wood choice for its clear articulation, nuanced character and tonal versatility.

Fishman Preamp System

With a pure acoustic voice, the onboard Fishman® Presys bass electronics provide robust tonal controls allowing players to fine-tune their EQ, a phase control for combatting feedback, and onboard tuner for convenient on-the-fly adjustment.

Jazz Bass Neck Profile

Inspired by Fender electric basses, the Kingman Bass features a supremely playable slim Jazz Bass neck profile with a 1.5" nut width and smooth rounded fingerboard edges for exceptional hand comfortable.

Walnut Fingerboard and Bridge

With its pleasingly dark look, smooth feel and vibrant tonal character, walnut is a premium hardwood for acoustic guitar bridges and fingerboards.

Deluxe Gig Bag

With comfortable padded backpack straps, durable outer material, and multiple pockets, the included deluxe gig bag provides the perfect balance of ample storage, road-worthy protection, and portability.
