Inspired by the iconic designs of Fender electric guitars, California Player acoustics evoke the west coast spirit of adventure and freedom, inviting musicians to explore their individual creativity and disrupt the status quo.
Crafted with an X-braced solid spruce top and sapele back and sides, the compact mid-sized auditorium body of the Kingman™ Bass produces a deep, punchy, and articulate tone and features a cutaway for convenient access to the upper frets. The bound nato neck is elegantly appointed with block inlays and is designed with a slim “C”-shaped Jazz Bass® profile, an easy-to-play short 30" scale length, comfortable 1.5” nut width, and a 4-in-line headstock for a distinctive look born from Fender’s electric bass DNA. Other notable details include open-gear vintage-style tuning machines for smooth, accurate tuning, a GraphTech® NuBone® nut and saddle for focused fundamental tone, and a Fishman® Presys preamp system that allows detailed fine-tuning of the bass’s amplified sound when performing or recording. A deluxe gig bag is included.
Bold, eye-catching and unique, California Series instruments make no compromises balancing effortless playability, superior sound, and standout style for those who aspire to play something different.
