    Brubaker KXB-5 Custom. Original owner. Buckeye Burl top with matching headstock. There's a thin layer of Walnut under the top and headstock face and Kevin Brubaker did a fairly subtle burst finish. Zircote fingerboard, Maple body and neck, stainless steel frets. 34 5/8" scale, 19mm. 10.6 lbs.

    Bartolini NTMB preamp and quadcoil pickups. Vol - Vol-treble-mids-bass with coil tap and 3 way mids toggle switch. Metal knobs have a custom matching burst finish. Black and gold Hipshot hardware and Dunlop straplocks. I think this would currently be replaced by an Xtreme II. Shipping in CONUS

    Might trade towards a Honda Element. Seriously.
    Edit: found an Element.
    :D

    Thanks. I have some pretty incredible basses and this is definitely near the top. Sounds amazing, plays effortlessly.

    Found a car I want to pick up so big price reduction. If it doesn't sell in time to get the car it'll go back off the market. Make an offer.

    Thanks.
    :D

    I have several by most standards ridiculous basses. Definitely a fortunate one.
