    I could definitely see Marty McFly's kid playing that on his hoverboard.

    Awesome design!

    Congrats and post picks when it arrives.

    It needs the kubicki style clip at the zero fret to make it complete;)

    It actually has a different take on the Kubicki Clip that Phil had discussed with the designer and gave him permission to use.

    For Jaymi Millard, there is a rendering in pink....

    I new Phil for years and it seems unlikely to me that he would agree to let someone else use his ideas. Unfortunately Phil is not here to confirm or deny the above statement.

    Very cool bass, indeed. Almost "retro future".

    So what is the device that drops the E to a D? Looking at this rendering, I'm guessing a spring loaded button raises/lowers the nut fret instead of capo-ing it as an Ex Factor.

    JIO,

    Interesting spring and magnet design. Wish I could go into it more but the designer is waiting on his PAF and Trademark. But even easier to engage and disengage and actually less moving parts then on a Kubicki. When the bass is delivered and ready to go I'll ask the designer, Bill Compeau of Armstrong Instruments and Kerry Davis Guitars to explain it. Of course, you know me, I'll only be using the low D feature about once a millenium......when I need hyperdrive....LOL!

    Here is a picture of how the headstock is set up, the string lock is show sideways for illustration only. I did IN FACT receive permission directly from Phil the year before he died to continue on with my unique take on a drop D clamp for my own basses, I have known Phil for many years and sold Kubicki in a retail store as well as played a couple of them myself. Phil was one of my earliest influences and mentors in the mid '90's when we used to chat a lot about this stuff, great guy and very talented and VERY generous!:[​IMG]
