    Nice. Always liked the sound of Bartolini pickups. Looks like it would be difficult to play past the 14th fret.

    Yeah, the neck is AMAZING all the way to the the Body. Just place your thumb in the center of the neck and you can work all the way down with easy access. The action on this bass is Impossible! It's a Dream to play. And now that I know what the controls are, the tones this baby oozes out are endless. Yes, Barts are Good!

    I'm gonna go play this baby some more!

    Congrats man. I know you're loving the way your bass sounds. I'm down with that Brubaker sound. They do it for me.

    Sexual chocolate. I really love the flat black, but I'd personally go with black hardware as well. Really nice.

    I thought about how this bass would look "Blacked Out". I think there's Just the right amount of Chrome to still pull off the Flat Black paint. If it was a Shiney Black, Black harware all day long! I am going to add a D-Tuner to the E String, and I've added Black Dunlop Strap Locks. And Kudos for Brubaker drilling the Strap button holes Deep enough for upgraded strap buttons. I hate it when I have to drill the holes for Strap Locks that last 1/4" into anything worth more that $1K.

    That's my Reflection!:D

    Yes, the Wood Grain in the fingerboard is Awesome! Those are Maple Boards with some tastey Tints and Swirls to keep with the UnderStated theme of this bass.

    Dear god what a sexy bass. Brubaker could have chosen a bit more stylish bridge though!

    That's a hipshot B. I like the A's better for some reason.
