Up for sale is my very nicely modified Brubaker Brute MJX-5 in Mediterranean finish!! I am selling to finance the purchase of a Salas custom 5-er I just picked up. I purchased this bass here on Talkbass back in 2010 and it has lived up to the hype!! I just have too many basses. Over the last year or so I have received a couple of inquiries regarding this beast being for sale - so I have priced to sell and hope it moves fast to someon who can really use it. As I have over 20 basses, this guy really received a minimum of playing.
Bass has been upgraded with Bartolini jazz and MM pickups and Aguilar OBP-3 preamp with a toggle switches for the mids and parallel/single coil/series swithching for the MM pickup. Can get a variety of tones and is very comfortable to play.
Here are the specs:
Maple fingerboard and neck
34 inch scale
Aguilar OBP-3 preamp
Bartolini classic jazz and MM pickups
Pretty light at 9 lbs. I can only find two dings on the front of the bass. But with the black body they are not noticeable. Above the pickguard at the top end of the bass and near the bottom end by the jack. Also, there is a small imperfection in the neck on the B side right below the third fret marker dot.
Also, I removed all of the markings on the headstock except for the "Brubaker" logo.... I thought it looked a little too 'busy' and it more resembles on of the higher end models this way.
You can get this one totally pimped out for (SOLD FOR $600)
