    I know alot of you are going to disagree, but I think this bass is so cool looking.

    Nothing like having a bass that matches your ears! :D Now all he needs is a Trace Elliot amp!

    I'd have to see it in person for a final opinion, but I'd have no problem owning it if it plays and sounds nice. As it's a brubaker, I'm sure it does.

    Heck--no one could say, "It's just like mine!"
     
  11. i like it! i actually just saw it on their site last night. is it me, or is there a black strip still on the neck? i'd like it better if it was a solid green fingerboard. i saw that roscoe can color the diamondwood boards he does, though i believe i've only seen the black ones.

    That's a Brubaker "split-board." Maple under the high strings, ebony under the low.

    Is there a tonal purpose of the split-board? Or just Æsthetics? Maple to give the hig strings a "crack" and ebony to give the lows some "beef"?

    That's the idea, as I understand it. It's for purposes of sound, not appearance.

    I love the green finish, but I would need more of a traditional fretboard. Natural Birdseye maple, or "Spalted Purpleheart", with matching green headstock.
