Kinal MK21 Bass Guitar, 5-string,
This beautiful high end instrument was hand-made by Mike Kinal. Condition is new. It has only been played to confirm that everything is without flaws. I’m selling because during the seven month wait for it to be made, I decided to devote my time to other passions. So, I’m giving up all things related to bass.
This 5-string electric bass guitar has a flame myrtlewood top and is made of 7 different woods, all with a natural finish. The different woods are listed below in the specs. This bass’s voice is clear and deep due to the Deep Coil Bartolini BD pickups, and the woods give it a rich sound overall. The 18-volt Bartolini passive/active preamp allows for a wide range of sound sculpting.
With a 34-inch scale and Kinal’s signature smooth and satiny finish on the neck, this bass has the playability you’d expect from highest end basses. The slightly lower profile frets were chosen for fretboard speed. The sustain is excellent due to both the Babicz Full Contact bridge and the materials used in construction. A Hipshot extender is installed for extra versatility.

Owner’s manuals for the bass, preamp and tone controls, Hipshot extender, and bridge, as well as the truss rod wrench, the bridge wrench, and that new, custom made bass smell!
