A Road King with flash!
The Sparkle King is built exactly like King's Road King upright with a 5-ply top-grade maple and spruce laminate wood body constructed with the strongest glue on this planet. What makes the King Sparkle stand out is the finish. If you are looking for a flashy double bass that takes on a life of its own when the stage lights hit, then this is the bass you are looking for. King uses a variety of flake materials in combination with the best candy finishes to makes these basses sparkle on or off the stage.
Over 80 hours goes into their finishes and each stand up bass is meticulously detailed and polished to a high gloss. Once the paint is finished, the bass is then ready to be professionally set up by the experts at King Doublebass. Each one is set up to exacting specifications and will feel just right on a walking jazz line or some blistering psychobilly. King's luthiers spend many hours perfectly fitting the maple bridge, planing and sanding the ebony fingerboard and fitting the heavy-duty endpin resulting in a bass that plays perfectly right out of the box.

This is a pretty good bass. But its just like any other upright. King Doublebasses are just run of the mill basses, re-constructed and painted up and made to look all shiney. No doubt a good bass..but its not worth the ridculous price. .its KDB thats pullin' your chain..........
