    This instrument exudes class in every respect. Love the satin finish.

    Could you please give a quick description of the Brubaker bolt-thru concept? Sorry for being lazy!

    By the way, is that stack knob as towering high as it looks?

  3. I believe it may be more of the angle that I took the photos... lol

    I honestly never thought twice about it before you mentioned that. The nice thing is that that stacked pot is your bass and treble controls. Makes it very easy to make adjustments on the fly.
  4. The neck joint on Brubaker instrument is not a neck-through, a set neck, a bolt on, or a glue-in neck. It's kind of a combination of everything. Kevin Brubaker calls it, the neck-through bolt-on or bolt-through, because it goes deep into the body. The proprietary design provides the Brubaker basses with a unique quality about the instrument from a construction standpoint. It sets the Brubaker basses apart from other builders.

    With this unique feature you get the sustain and resonance of a neck through and the growl and punch of a bolt on. In addition this unique neck construction also provides the instrument with its own unique voice and character. Really it is quite genius! It makes playing the instrument just an absolute pleasure!
  5. I also love the satin finish and basically the entire look of this bass! It’s simple and keeps the traditional jazz look and feel, yet still manages to be unique and classy! Very appealing look to the eye IMO!
