2001 Kinal SKB-5 5 string bass


SKU: AMC0040 Categories: , ,


This bass is in exceptional shape considering it’s 22+ years old, no dings dents except one tiny one on the back of the body up by the horn along with some minor “swirls” on the face & back that won’t photograph very well.
Truss rod works as it should, frets are near mint with no buzzes or dead spots anywhere!!
It’s probably a 9 out of 10.
The preamp is a collaboration between Bill Bartolini & Mike Kinal and is by far the most flexible, best sounding ever! The EQ bypass switch allows you to dial in whatever sound you want then go back to detent settings by just a flick of the toggle (very effective/useful for slapping and more aggressive techniques!!)
