OVERVIEW

Old school vibe with modern appointments and electronics makes for a great investment.

The California Series Kingman SCE Cutaway Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Bass is a special instrument, delivering fantastic acoustic projection, built with versatile onboard electronics, and dressed in the phenomenal retro-cool style of Fender's California Series. More than just a pretty bass, it also provides the smooth and comfortable playing experience you expect from a fine Fender bass, with a maple Jazz Bass neck and a convenient cutaway that gives easy access to the upper reaches of the fingerboard. And don't let its modest price fool you - the California Series Kingman SCE Cutaway Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Bass offers features usually reserved for higher-end acoustic basses, such as a solid spruce top with scalloped X bracing and premium onboard electronics for great tone acoustically and amplified. Includes hardshell case.

FEATURES
  • Dreadnought cutaway bass body style
  • Fishman Presys pickup system with active onboard preamp and tuner
  • Solid spruce top with scalloped œX bracing, mahogany back and sides
  • Maple neck with Jazz Bass profile
  • 20-fret rosewood fingerboard with bone nut
  • Rosewood bridge with compensated bone saddle
  • Gold pickguard, checkerboard rosette, multiple body binding

Feel like a King, man...add this bass to your collection today!

Comments about Fender California Series Kingman SCE Cutaway Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Bass:

I've been playing guitar/bass for 40+ years. I love this acoustic bass. It is easy to play stays in tune and has rich bottom sound without distortion. It is perfect for playing in small venues, studio or practice. It is essentially an acoustic with a Fender Jazz neck on it. The only draw back is that it is top heavy, even with a strap, it will tend to dip but, not enough that it becomes a major issue.
