Great Value Acoustic Bass

Nostromo, 03.03.2015
I'd been looking at the Kingman SCE Bass for a while. Wanted a working acoustic bass I could plug in either to backline or PA as required. The fact that Fender had removed this models info page from their main website made me think "maybe it's going to be discontinued" - - so I took the plunge:-
Build quality: for a Chinese guitar it's amazingly good, their production standards have improved enormously in recent years.
Feel: I love the slim jazz neck carve, it's the slimmest necked acoustic bass I've ever picked up and for me it's very very playable. If you like a fat/thick precision neck or bigger this neck wont be for you ! It's light and balances well on the strap, so very comfortable even over three or four hours.
Sound: Very bright and articulate, not surprisingly the bottom end is a little thin if played only acoustically, but that's the point, plug it in, even to a tiny practice bass amp, and you can easily and naturally boost the bottom end and balance out the sound. Through a bigger backline amp or PA the onboard preamp provides loads of tonal range and I can make it sound very very "acoustic" or almost similar to an electric jazz bass - not that you'd particularly want to do that ! but basically there's a lot of eq available and its easy to get that amplified acoustic sound you can't quite get with an electric bass.
Usability: I haven't had any feedback problems with it when used live. Tuning
stability is good, I expected it to be a bit temperamental under lighting etc but that hasn't been the case. I also went with the fender hard case which was a perfect fit and keeps the bass safe in transit.
Looks: I guess individual units must vary a bit but mine has good strong tight grain pattern to the soundboard and the back and sides are very attractive. I'm not absolutely sure about the gold pickguard and if it had been provided detached as a stick on extra I might have left it off ?
Conclusion: If you want an acoustic bass with a Jazz profile neck ? . . then I'd get one while you can !... This bass definitely scores a well deserved 9.5 out of 10 !

I love this bass

I'm big fan of the JazzBass neck. As an acoustic version, it is very pleasant to play.

If you plan to use this bass in an acoustic/unplugged band, don't fool yourself, you need an amp or a PA. This is not a loud instrument.

One downside, the preamp battery compartment vibrates at certain frequencies. I solved it by sticking some business cards.
