    This is an exquisite example of Kevin Brubaker's work. This one has all the stops on it and it's just ridiculous how great this sounds and looks. Almost all of the Brubakers sold here on TalkBass have been either standard KXB's or the Brute series. This is the REAL deal here!

    Burl Maple top w/ blue burst finish and binding on the sides and 3D carved matching headstock
    Chambered Spanish Cedar Body w/ Mahogany tone layer between the top
    Abalone inlays on the 24 fret Ziricote fretboard and in the chamber faces.
    Maple neck
    Matching pre-amp cover
    Bartolini pre and pups
    it's a 3 band EQ with push pull for low/high mids and active/passive
    coil tap switch

    It used to have plastic knobs that I changed out for Kevin Brubaker's premium knobs

    I'd say 9lbs. I don't have a scale but it's definitely lighter than my 635 and that was 10lbs. The hollowing out took out a good bit of weight and it's light for a singlecut

    No, it is a bolt-thru neck. The neck is socketed deep into the body like a neck-thru as opposed to a traditional bolt-on that is bolted at the heel. It's quite remarkable!

    I see. It looks like the neck is glued/connected to the upper horn. Yes, quite remarkable looking.

    The goal was to get the benefit of sustain and low action from the neck-thru and the punchiness of bolt-on.
