Ken is really making some nice basses. I own 2 of Brase-I 5 (one is Ken's own Brase that started it all). The chamberbrase is one unique bass that i'd like to try but my GAS has been hybernating for the time being.
I approve, buy it NOW.
I used to own a KL 6 string. Incredible bass!!
I wish I had it back!!
you've got every other bass why not get this one.

no no I'm not trying to spend your money for you
I hate to do this to you, but I've played 2 basses very similar to that one...unfortunately for you, they play sound sound even nicer than they look!
Not really my thing but that is a cool bass
You'd think for a bass that expensive, they could at least put both pickups in straight - not all crooked like that. Just kidding!
That thing is beautiful - bet the tone is even better.
I dig it, just not the frets.
I love KL basses. I think he has--easily--one of the nicest designs out there with the ChamberBrase basses.
IMHO the CB1 has a cooler look, but I'm not particularly fond of how much string length it adds. The CB2 is certainly more practical in terms of finding strings.
Could you tell us a little more about that bass? It's a beauty!
here is one of my Brases
I have seen that first picture before--very beautiful bass, but I'd be too afraid to play it! That would certainly be a look-don't-touch bass for me
maple tone block
chechen top and fingerboard
Bassline pick up
I really liked it. One of the best bass I ever owned. But it was 6 string (my first and only one) and couldn't find any use for the C string.
I think that today I could find a use for it!
Ken is easily one of the most gifted builders to build a bass guitar. I love his work through and through and really look forward to owning one someday.
I've never played one of Ken's basses that was not fantastic!
Here is mine, on the left. Like an idiot, I sold the one on the right!
The one below is the one I kept - it is now fretted and has abalone block inlays Ken did for me.
