    Here, for sale only, is a sweet Brubaker bass made custom for Jeff Abercrombie of Fuel, and used extensively.

    FEATURES:
    ~Wenge Fretboard
    ~Maple Neck
    ~Gotoh Tuners (with D-Tuner)
    ~Lane Poor pickups
    ~2-tek Bridge (my personal favorite!)
    ~Sweet Green top thats pretty thick, not like wallpaper at all, haha.
    ~Hardshell case that stood the test of time on the road
    ~Fuel set list w/Jeff's pass (strictly for verification purposes)
    ~dunlop straplocks

    The neck is nice and worn in from all the play, back has a little rash as expected, great preamp, plays better than most of the stuff I've ever played on. Attempting to talk to Kevin Brubaker himself about the truss rod, seems a little stiff. The Lane Poors sound great, was really excited to have this bass, but looking to add a little more power to my car, if ya know what i mean ;)

    Looking for $1200 shipped
    CONUS only!!!
    I like paypal.

    Any questions, comments, offers, feel free to send them my way! I have a lot of pics!

    FYI, Brubaker truss rods typically turn in the OPPOSITE direction of most other brands. You may want to verify w Kevin Brubaker or even Brad Johnson here on TB.

    Thanks for the heads up, Fred. BTW I used the Tech Soundsystems 212 cab yesterday and it killed.

    The trussrods do operate the opposite way of most rods. Turn clockwise to loosen and counter-clockwise to tighty

    lefty tighty righty loosey just sounds wrong, doesn't it?
    ;)

    If the rod is just difficult to turn let me know or contact Kevin at the email address on the website.

    The older basses with Lane Poors and the 2-Tek were pretty nice. Considering what Lane Poors go for this bass is a steal.

    UPDATE: Neck will be taken care of regardless, havent had a chance to check it out since those last replies. Still looking for $1200 shipped CONUS. Who's looking to get rid of their tax return?

    i bought a Brubaker KB-4 from Quadzilla,no less!..
    like an idiot I sold her..now one of my bass students has her and everytime I see that beauty, I'm reminded of how I'll never be able to afford one again..
    this is a good price on anything Brubaker..
    the low end/low mids were so huge on my Bru..unreal.
