Five Finger Death Punch’s Chris Kael to Release Signature Spector Bass
Five Finger Death Punch bassist Chris Kael has collaborated with Spector on the design and creation of a signature bass, the Chris Kael CK-4, which become available this fall.
“Having played Spector long before joining Five Finger Death Punch, I am extremely happy to now be in a position to collaborate with them on the design of the new Chris Kael CK-4 Signature Model. Combining the playability and feel of Spector with the tone of the EMG P/J pickups and the attitude of the brass knuckle bridge, this is the bass I’ve always wanted. One man. One beard. One bass. Spector, Son.”
The bass features a “Neck-Thru the body construction,” which is carbon fiber reinforced in 3-Piece rock maple. The fingerboard is rosewood with 24 frets and the bass has solid maple body wings and EMG pickups. Kael’s bass will be available in matte black or matte white with black hardware. Other musicians such as Alex Webster (Cannibal Corpse), Ian Hill (Judas Priest) and Rex Brown (Pantera) also have Spector signature bass guitars.
Two 5FDP albums will be released this year. ‘The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell, Volume 1’ is out July 30, with the second half of the double album slated for a fall release.
