Last of the Barker Basses: Brio #11
Alas #11 got a bump. Above the knobs, right on the edge. Not big--the size of a pencil eraser--but still, suddenly, it's not new new. But it's new.
She's typical in every way, with the custom P-bass pickups from Samuel Terry Yim at Samsung, the alder front/alder back combination with the striking walnut centerline, and the moderne, slender curvaceousness which sets her apart from the slightly formal B1s.
Elegant simplicity. P-Bass mojo. Attractive price. And then a discount!
Suggested retail: $2595
Street price $1995
Dinged price $1750
Includes stand and gig bag set. Shipping added
Looks familiar! Killer 'organ' like lows from my Brio.
barker basses are awesome!
Distributed starting today at NAMM 2014, Anaheim, California:
"Mysterion"--The Cryptic Six
One of only two six string Barkers on the planet Earth.
Some questions have the nearly chemical ability to keep you awake when your body wants nothing more than the solace of slumber.
Here's a bass that has as many questions around it as a cheerleader has running backs around her at the prom.
I'll tell you what I know. Joel Barker had the idea. Joel Barker brought a 6 string bass guitar to the shop and he and Lee Barker made a big bass out of a little bass.
What was the brand of the bass? Neither remembers. "Maybe Lyle," offers Joel. "Beats me," affirms Lee. "Brice?"
Does it play? Indeed. Does it sound like a Barker Bass? Hmmm. Well, it sounds like a Barker Bass would sound if it had an additional string. Or two. With an onboard preamp.
$2000 plus shipping. One only. Six strings Five knobs. Unlimited possibilities.
