    For Sale

    Brubaker NSB 4 String (1999)

    Prevuiously owned by Jeff Abercrombie of Fuel

    • Wenge Fretboard
    • Maple Neck
    • Gotoh Tuners (with D-Tuner)
      Seymour Duncan Basslines Soapbar pickups and preamp
    • Gorgeous deep purple flame maple top / ash body.
    • Hardshell case that looks terrible from touring, but all latches work perfectly and the interior is in great shape. Have key for locking case as well.
    Bass has a few nicks, but nothing thru the finish. Neck is dead straight and plays like a dream. Wenge fingerboard is perfect and the back of the neck has a couple of tiny dimples that you can barely feel.

    Really a fantastic bass that will blow away anything in the price range I am asking for the bass.

    I may have the exact model name incorrect, but maybe Brad Johnson or somebody else here could chime in on the correct model.

    Price - $715.00 shipped (U.S. Only)

    Local pickup preferred
    Cash or USPS Money Order
    No Trades Please

    Email for pictures.

    Wow, now that's an old one!!! I almost don't remember building that one.
    As always, I could be wrong.

    I actually have the green one used by Jeff in the Fuel video "Bittersweet".

    Mine has lane poors, so I can't attest to this bass's specific sound, but I CAN say it plays awesome, looks great, and the construction is top friggin notch. I love it.

    Very nice!
    What's the scale length, nut width/neck feel or shape and string spacing?

    34 5/8" has been my standard scale length since the dawn of time. Approx. 1 5/8" nut width and probably 19mm string spacing on the 4's.

    A rare one indeed- I almost want to buy it back but why when I can build another just like it?

    Hi Kevin,

    Thank you for providing the information and chiming in. Wonderful basses you produce.

    One day I will grab another of your basses when the funds allow.

    I really can't believe this is still here ...
    Heck, it's >$200 more than a Brute!

    Good thing I prefer a 1.5" ... or I'd be doing something stupid! :smug:

    BUMP for a great deal!
  12. If someone buys my Warwick and this is still here, I'm ON it :hyper:

    I'm pretty sure this is one that I played years back up here in Boston. Great, clean and very responsive.
  16. Uh Oh! Spencer is on this. Despite his only 177 feedback, he's one hell of a TBer :D :bag:

    Here are some more pictures of the bass. I tried to show as many of the dimples that I can on the body and neck.

    These really look a lot worse than they are. Kevin uses a very, I think, thick coat of poly on the basses and none of these are even close to the wood.

    Weigh of the bass is 9.2lbs on my scale.

    Thanks for looking.
