Overview

Featuring a solid cedar top--an especially good wood for bass--the Club Custom has an exceptionally full, strong tone. Its tone is enhanced by the stunning burled ash back and sides. It has a 34" scale length for perfect string tension and a Fishman MKAB acoustic bass-optimized amplification system. Developed exclusively for Michael Kelly by Fishman, it is one of the first preamps made expressly for acoustic bass rather than guitar.

Great Instrument

Comments about Michael Kelly Club Custom 5-String Acoustic-Electric Bass:

This is the best sounding and the best looking acoustic Bass I've seen. It has a great acoustic sound and sounds even better plugged in. The Fishman electronics sound really great. Its very playable, the action is good! The same goes for the fretless version of this same instrument. My only complaint is that changing the strings is EXTREMELY difficult! The pegs don't come out easily, and I had to sand the peg for the low B string just to get the new string to fit (how the other string was in there must have been magic). I suggest buying some kind of heavy duty bass peg puller (if they even exist) with this instrument to care for it, otherwise, get out your pliers and an old T-Shirt and yank away.
