    Brubaker Brute series MJX5 model. Very good condition and plays like a dream. Some light scratching but no dings of significance if you can find one. Original pickups and preamp were removed (Included in the sale) and replaced by some bartolini pickups. The preamp was also replaced with a bartolini preamp. It has Volume, blend and three tone knobs. the switch is to coil tap the bridge pickup. It comes with a hardshell case. Feel free to make trade offers. However please be fair about it. Willing to +/- cash if it is something I like. I really want a nice mesa amplifier head (600W or greater), unless it is the prodigy.

    I doubt anyone would be disappointed with this bass. 479 shipped in USA only.

    My phone camera is kind of crappy and that is what I use, so sorry those are the best I have. I am happy to answer any questions via phone, PM or email. The condition is Very good, not mint or near mint. It doesnt have any major dings or paint chips really only light scratches. I would conservatively rate it as 8/10 condition. Really can't go wrong with the upgrades on this bass. Oh, did I mention it comes with the original pickups and preamp :)

    Scale length is 34". But B-STring sounds great with the EB slinky strings.

    This is a killer deal, especially with the electronics upgrades... I have the exact same model of Brute and been playing Sadowsky, Music Man, Fender, and Sire basses for years. I pulled out the Brute over the weekend to give it a go and the neck and playability are easily up there with basses that cost nearly 3 grand.

    Is the Brubaker still for sale or trade?
