    Definitely not convinced I want to move on from this, but figured I'd see what else is out there.

    Pretty much brand new Brubaker Brute SC 5 string. I purchased this in May from the dreaded Grand Central Music, received it in September. It was in desperate need of a setup, so I had about $150 worth of work done at Austin Vintage Guitars. They do incredible work, and after some truss rod tweaks and leveling a few frets this thing plays great. Action is set medium low, if you're a heavy slapper you might need to bring it up a bit. Natural finish, rosewood board. I'll get some pics up later today/tonight.

    As far as trades, I'm interested in similar value 5-strings. I prefer dark fretboards and active electronics, MTD/Lakland/etc. I would throw in some cash towards a Human Base X.oc5. I'm keeping it local to New Orleans for now. Let me hear what you've got...

    If anyone wants to see anything more, let me know. I'm not much of a photographer. The bass in still in as-new condition.

    Sorry, been away awhile.

    I think my biggest issue is with the pups and pre. My plan is to try and save some scratch and go with Bartolini in both and see how that goes. Though I'm still open to local New Orleans deals...
