The fretted UBASS-PSGR-FS from Kala is a Passenger Acoustic-Electric U-Bass fitted with mahogany top, back, and sides, cream binding, a mahogany neck, in a satin finish. It can be used by musicians and students in recording studios, rehearsals, for playing live on stage, and more.
The UBASS-PSGR-FS produces the same pitches as a standard bass instrument and is tuned in traditional bass tuning: E-A-D-G. Featuring 16 frets in a 21" scale, the Passenger Acoustic-Electric U-Bass has an active EQ and built-in tuner to provide tone control and spot-on tuning. The rosewood fingerboard on this fretted U-Bass has dot inlay neck-markings at the 3rd, 5th, 7th, 9th, 12th, and 15th positions to help identify the 16 fret locations.
The built-in custom black, die-cast tuners ensure the instrument will stay in tune, and the plastic nut and UK-500B Piezo pickup saddle deliver a balanced tone. The Passenger U-Bass is set up with Kala's Aquila Thundergut strings, and includes a padded gig bag for transport.
