Brubaker ” Frosty ” 5 string bass with custom paint

Kevin Brubaker is a very talented cat from Maryland. What makes his basses special ? The bolt on / inset neck is unique.  What else ? Wild and beautiful woods and inventive paint jobs. Bottom line – these are great basses !

Stambaugh 5 string basses, 34 scale and 30 scale twins with whammy

Back in 2003 I commissioned Chris Stambaugh to build this pair of 5 strings. The top bass is a 34” scale bass, on the bottom is a 30” that was tuned EADGC. Hipshot whammy bars on both. These came out really well, and they look teats!
