    Brubaker 4 string for sale or trade. Maple neck and fretboard, quilt maple top in tobacco-burst. Bartolini pickups and preamp. Nick in the headstock is the only mark on it.

    Asking $1300 + s/h. Will consider trades and trades + cash for 4/5 string basses, amps, etc.

  2. What is the preamp? 2 band or 3? Are you the original owner?

    Preamp is a bartolini, as are the pickups. Two band preamp, volume, pickup mix (?). I'm not the original owner, got it here in a trade a few months ago.

  7. Hey, just because I decided against your Smith doesn't mean you have to move in on the Brubaker! :D :D :D

    Still in search of that perfect 4 string!

    A quick hype of this bass:

    Plays wonderfully, looks incredible, sounds beautiful. I should have never let it go. Wish I had the cabbage to get it back.
     
  9. I'm curious, if it is a 2 band pre-amp, then what is the stacked knob? Thanks.

    The knobs are, from back to front: volume, stacked bass/treble, bridge pickup, neck pickup.

    The standard setup is (from closest to the bridge):

    Volume, stacked Treble/Bass, push/pull Mids (two centers), pan pot. Some basses did go out with a one position Mid control.

    What do the last two knobs ("bridge pickup, neck pickup") on yours do?

    sounds like pup volume(s), though.

    trade pending.

    Purty! I assume it is 34" scale? Not in the market, just curious. :D

    Dunno how i missed that last one....scale length is from the nut to the front end of the bridge, right? If so, then yes, 34'.

    Still available. I'd really like to trade for a fretless 4 or 5, or a nice j 4/5 with rosewood fretboard, or w/ some cash (from the other party) and a epifani 410 ul, or w/ some cash (from me) towards an Aguilar db750.
