Status Kingbass MK2 headed.... 19mm

Spacing and Blue LED’s  (Mint Condition) 

A Special one this not only because it’s a phenomenal example of this instrument in perfect condition but it’s a rare 19mm string spacing. 

Have you ever picked up a Kingbass and loved the looks, feel and tone but found it really cramped and tight string spacing ? I have... ! That’s because Mark King prefers 16.5mm spacing and probably at least 99% of his signature Status Basses made by status have this spacing which for anyone coming from Fender / Musicman or almost any other bass can be a difficult adjustment..... 

The Kingbass MK2 is unmistakably Status in tone but because of the bigger body (similar to Alembic) and Jazz pickups has a more versatile and rounded tone suitable for any band situation.... this particular example sets up

And plays clean at a lower action than any bass I’ve ever had my hands on....  it’s acoustic tone is massive with sustain for days.... you can hear the bigger fundamental in there from the bigger body and the flexibility of the circuit allows you to dial in anything you need.....  

My favourite tone is a slight bias to the bridge pickup with a touch of bass.... barks, bites and growls like nothing you’ve heard !!

LEDs are a gorgeous bright blue !

Only for sale as I want to condense my range of instruments to an active Jazz and an Alembic (when I find the right one) 

I know I’ll regret selling but hey ho.... I’ve enjoyed owning it immensely. 

Due to consolidating my instruments I’m not interested in PX (unless it’s an Alembic)
