Rare 1966 Kalamazoo Short Scale Bass KB-1, resplendent in a vibrant Las Vegas Blue finish, This bass not only tells the tale of an era but stands as a testament to timeless design. Please look up Pretty crazy! Jimi Hendrix???

Maintaining its authenticity, this KB-1 proudly boasts all original parts, offering you a genuine experience of a classic instrument. The rosewood fretboard adds a touch of warmth to the tonal palette, complemented by the bolt-on maple neck and body for a resonant and articulate sound.

Powered by an EB-0 pickup outfitted with a humbucker, this bass delivers a rich, full-bodied tone that's perfect for a variety of musical styles. The double cutaway body not only enhances playability but also contributes to the bass's distinctive aesthetic appeal.

Fine-tune your sound with the two knobs for tone and master volume control, allowing you to sculpt your tones with precision. The 1.5-inch nut width provides a comfortable playing experience, making it an excellent choice for players of all styles.

The vintage character of this KB-1 is punctuated by two chips on the pickguard, expertly repaired to preserve the instrument's integrity. Completing the package is the inclusion of a chipboard case.
