An imported version of the Road King.
While more affordable than the Road King, the Slap King is no entry-level instrument. It is a fully worthy tour-quality bass. Crafted with a 6-ply laminate wood body, steel-reinforced maple neck with ebony fingerboard, premium tuners, and high quality endpin. The Slap King can be easily upgraded with features that fit your playing style such as a chrome tailpiece, adjustable bridge, and pickup system. Like all King Doublebasses, the Slap King is professionally set up at the factory so that it arrives ready to play.
- Comes standard with high-grade ebony fingerboard and tailpiece
- Plywood bass with steel reinforced neck

This bass is great. It looks awesome black with white pinstripe. Mine has a piezo pickup system and sounds great with its EQ box. It plays and sounds awesome.
This bass plays like a top of the line Road King for a fraction of the price. King DoubleBass sets these babies up themselves so you know they'll play great. These basses may be made in China but the owner of KDB went there himself and handpicked his overseas builders. These basses are built like tanks and can take road use and abuse. You can see many famous slappers playing one of these including Lee Rocker, Jimbo (Reverend Horton Heat), Geoff Kresge(viva hate, ex-tiger army), Valle(Mad Sin), even Snoop Doggs bassist has one!
