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

No manual was included but found on line. No pahoehoe strings but like the current wound strings which hold intonation well without the stretching. I'm not experienced enough to judge tone quality. Easy to play. Plays well acoustically for practice. The electric tuner works well and is handy. Overal it's a beautiful piece. Looking forward to playing.

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)
