This model is the short scale bass instrument. Many of you have been inquiring about this model which was briefly introduced as a sample at NAMM 2019. After a year of modifications and various tests, we are happy to finally release the U5 in 2020.
To be brief, this is a passive setting on a jazz bass body. It's small, lightweight, and doesn't have all the complicated electronic settings, so you can take it right out and play it comfortably without having to set up the bass.
This instrument is the perfect choice for young children, students, or any players looking for a lighter instrument to take on tour. It is also a great choice for players who want to play an electric guitar while also having a sub bass.
