    EDIT 5/14/2018: Price Lowered, and now considering other trades. Still prefer an SB-2, but will consider other non-Fender basses.

    EDIT: There has been a fair bit of interest, so I have detailed the specs further, and included additional pics. Enjoy!

    This is a total custom 5-string bass by Brubaker.

    Kevin is a friend of mine, so we were able to work closely on this. He was thinking it might be a prototype for a new line, but decided to retain his focus on J-bass designs and his own custom basses. So this is, to my knowledge, the only P-type instrument Brubaker has ever made.

    Brubaker "bolt-on neck-through" neck joint.
    Birdseye maple neck and fretboard.
    Neck width at nut = 1.72 in
    Neck width at 12th fret = 2.6855 in
    Neck thickness at 1st fret, behind fret, not including fret = .772 in
    Neck thickness at 12 fret, behind fret, not including fret = .875 in
    Frets = medium jumbo
    No of frets = 22
    Abalone markers
    Maple body
    Hipshot hardware
    Bridge string spacing: 19mm
    Bartolini quad-coil pickups with custom polished stainless covers (permanently applied).
    Passive electronics, with switches for each pickup that select front coil/series/rear coil.
    Custom-made polished stainless hardware
    Beautiful vintage white finish, with one tiny flaw which we let go as this was a prototype.
    Condition: Virtually unplayed.
    I will include a new or nearly new case.

    I have uploaded a ton of pics so you can inspect. Note that the pics of the paint imperfection look like a dent, but it is not. That's a reflection of the lamp bulb.

    Not to be a pain, your bass is exactly what I was looking for. Is there a possibility that we could come to some sort of deal with some cash involved ? Thanks Ed
