The Kala Scout U-Bass is a Mahogany Acoustic Electric Bass Ukulele that looks and sounds amazing, so we decided to review it amongst our search for best bass ukuleles.  Whether you get the fretted or fretless bass version of the U-Bass, you will have a solid instrument on your hands.

Features:

  • Spalted Maple Top
  • High Quality Maple Back & Sides
  • Fine Mahogany Neck
  • Solid Black Binding
  • Satin Finish that accentuates the Spalted Maple
  • Finger Friendly Rosewood Fingerboard
  • Comes with a gigbag

The Spalted Maple Top has a very cool look that stands out and the Maple back and sides along with the Mahogany neck come together into a fine looking instrument.  There are versions of this bass that are spalted Mango which is similar but not the same as spalted Maple.  The spalted Mango has an orange hue which gives it the name Mango.

The Rosewood fretboard is also a great feature.  The fingerboard is easy to play and has a good finger feel.  

The Scout line of U-Basses are from the Kala Brand which continues to provide some of the best consumer and professional music products when it comes to their ukuleles.
