    I've had this brought to my attention...going quite cheap, could be a bit of a collectors item. Certainly doesn't look like a player, more like something to be kept in a museum to preserve it!

    I'd like to know who the "pro" player that owned it was...at first I thought the seller might be alluding to Stuart Hamm when he said the bassist was a "slap monster" from Chicago, but Stu used to live in Champaign, Illinois, before moving to San Fransico...not to mention that his first kubicki was #45, the "two tone" blue one that can be seen in his first video...


    Interesting.

    I find I don't use the D-clip on my Ex-Factor all that much...I guess I should since it's there! :meh:

    I wouldn't put it in a museum. I'd send it back to Philip to be somewhat restored without losing the mojo. That thing is a player.

    Well....Ew!:bag:

    Sorry, guys, I just can't get on with the Kubickis or Steinbergers.
     
  6. mmm me either... got a hipshot on the E of my stringray 5 (yes on the 'e' took a lil' bit of modification to fit it but it's great) ... I use that occasionally when I"m bored or feeling lazy and playing in D... or doing some chordal stuff. I mean, it's a cool idea and all... but why not just get a drop tuner?
     
  7. This way the rest of your notes are in the same spots


    You dont have to rethink that the A on your E string would 7th, it stays on the 5th fret
