    ***PRICE DROP TO $475***
    This is my heavily modified Brubaker Brute 5 string. It is technically a JJX, but it has been modified to an MJX with upgraded Lakland USA pickups and an EMG preamp. The tuners have also been upgraded to Gotoh.

    Tuners
    Black Gotoh tuners.

    Frets
    Zero fretwear. Super low action and feel.

    Truss Rod
    Fully functional, dual action truss rod.

    Pickups
    Lakland MM humbucker at bridge, Lakland noiseless single coil at neck. Mini switch for humbucker allows switching to inner coil, outer coil, or parallel coils. This is the same setup as on a Lakland 55-94.

    Preamp
    EMG BQS Control, Vol,vol,bass,treble,mid w/concentric frequency control. 9 volts.

    Bridge
    Stock, but modified for through body stringing on the B string only.

    Body
    Good condition. Theres a bump on the bottom side of the edge.

    I'll take $475+shipping in the US. I'm also up for any trades.

    I have a German Warwick Corvette Proline I might be interested in trading if you can add a little cash. It is a 4 string, tuned BEAD, ocean blue color, and it also comes with an extra Warwick brass adjust-a-nut for it as well. It would come with a brand new never used Warwick Rockbag.

    I'd say close to ten pounds. I don't have a scale nearby. That would be my guess. Oh by the way, this comes with a gig bag.

    This is my former bass and I weighed it right around 9.5 lbs. It has a fantastically balanced feel as well.

    Whatever you want to offer. I'm looking for a sale more than a trade, but I'm always open to offers.

    I'm interested in this but just can't pull it off with cash. What I do have is a KSD Proto J5 that I like, but willing to part with, if your interested in a Jazz.
    I've never heard or seen this bass in reality but from all the comments about it, it seems enticing.

    hmmmmm, this is tempting.....

    Do you feel the string through mod for the B string helped?

    Send me a PM if you'd like. We can also discuss some partial trade options if you'd like.

    That was me with the KSD. I don't want to break any rules so please contact me outside of this post about it.

    I'm also the one who is trying to raise funds to buy this Brubaker! :)
