Electric Basses

In our 15 year history, we have had a great relationship with bass players thanks largely to our top-selling line of acoustic basses. We, however, have never offered a full collection of solid body electric basses. We are excited to announce that we are developing electric basses and plan to officially introduce them in early 2017. Here on MK Players' Voice, we want to invite you to help guide us in our development. We want to hear from real players on what matters to them and use that input to define the line. Will you help us? Please join the community. We will be posting a number of topics and seeking your input via quick polls and community comments. Please join the MK bass guitar development group and sign up for email notifications.
