    The beauty of the X Factor is that with the E string in the D position ( using the device by the nut) you really dont need the B string... but that bass looks sweet

    Unless I heard otherwise from Phil, I'd assume someone's got a body from somewhere, and made a neck and string retainer. The bridge looks sort-of like my early Status, but it's not the same so it might be a one-off or a pull from a cheapo Japanese headless from the 80's. The best bit about the Kubickis are the bridge and neck, neither of which this bass has. Not real keen on the bodyshape myself, but it looks better than lots of other things, so.....
