    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.

    I'm not putting my almost 13 lb. Xtreme 5 up... that's easily the most amazing 5 I've ever played and I still gig it too. It just feels like it's time to thin the herd so many of my vintage fours along with this KXB-5 and my Eshenbaugh J5 are on the block.
