Left Handed Kala uBass for Sale - $350

This item has been sold. 

I’m selling my left-handed Kala uBass.  Bought in 2011.  Only got around to playing it a few times.  It's a cool instrument, but as a tenor banjo player w/ no bass experience I naively underestimated the skill required to play bass properly.  So I’m willing to let it go for $350Includes gig bag!  If interested please contact me.

The Kala uBass is a 20" scale uke that sounds like an upright acoustic bass!  It was designed by Owen Holt of Road Toad Music.  It is tuned in 4ths (EADG) just like a regular bass.  It is strung with long-lasting polyurethane Pahoehoe strings.  As an alternative, Aquila makes Thundergut bass strings that are supposed to work well on the uBass.
