    Thinning the herd...

    Must say I've been on the fence with this bass for a while since it has that compressed Bart/Bart jazz tone that none of my other basses can quite nail. Never fails to get compliments on the warm jazz to heavy mid tones (ranging from neck to bridge pickups with cut/boost adjustments.) brubaker jazz 1.jpg brubaker jazz 2.jpg brubaker jazz 3.jpg

    34 5/8 Scale
    19mm spacing

    Ash Body/Koa Top

    Ships in somewhat tattered Brubaker gig bag

    $1400 shipped and insured conUS...no trades...cannot do it.

    Hey Doug, you might want to change the title. This isn't a Standard, it's a full completely hand-built Custom. The Standard had CNC'd body and neck and a different electronics package and didn't have the full Bolt-thru neck joint. This is worth more. GLWS
     
  7. Thanks, Brad.
    You are correct! It does say "Custom" on the headstock.
    I was seriously considering pulling the thread anyway as I really do love the tone this bass gives...especially on full bridge and boosted mid settings.

    Nice to hear from you and trust you are doing well.

    Man I absolutely love the look of this bass. It's a bit too heavy for me and that's a shame because I would have snapped it up already for that price. Kevin's basses are some of the best playing and sounding out there. I had an old Lexa 6 that was totally amazing. Best of luck with the sale. It's a real beauty!!!

  20. Thanks for the interest. If I didn't have SO MUCH gear gathering dust, I probably wouldn't sell.
