Comments about Kala Exotic Mahogany U-Bass Ukulele Bass Fretted:

I traded in my nice Fender bass for this U-Bass because it is much more manageable for me to play.
I love the fingering being in easy viewing range, especially since I'm getting older (71 now).
Saw a young girl playing one at the Kerrville Folk Festival youth concert and asked her about it.
Could hardly believe that bass strings could be put on a ukelele body and sound like a real bass, but it works fine, except for needing to be retuned often (goes flat quickly so far)
