Hey, it's nice to be here! For my first post I'm seeking input from allayouz. I am trying to gauge the value of my Kubicki Ex Factor serial # 035. I have been watching E Bay prices for quite sometime but nothing on there has come close to this bass. Even Phil Kubicki doesn't have one with a serial # this low. This is the first one I ever saw and I ended up purchasing it from the original owner (Chicago player Derek Brand). He told me it was the 3rd one sold retail, the first going to John Taylor, the second went to Nashville. The electronics are hotter than anything I've ever come across, other Ex Factors included. P/U placement is slightly different and the Red+ Black factory finish is unique. That said, cosmetically the thing is worn to the wood in spots but that is because you can't put it down! Mechanically excellent w/ a fresh fret dressing and HSC. I'm considering trading for a new Lakland Skyline Jerry Scheff and would really appreciate your honest appraisal. Are Kubicki's collectable yet?
