Get Low-End Tonal Versatility With A Classic Body Design - The Brubaker JXB-5 SJ Standard Steve Jenkins Signature Electric Bass In Black

Finally. There's a bass to handle every situation, whether it's Funk, Gospel or Jazz - or else it's Blues to Rock to Fusion. All in the same set, of course.

STEVE JENKINS SIGNATURE BASS

Steve Jenkins is part of the new wave of modern electric bass players. In addition to his mind-blowing technical prowess, his musicianship has allowed him to fit into a diverse range of musical situations that have run the gamut from face-melting prog-metal to experimental microtonal jazz-funk to dubbed-out electronica bass lines to classic sounding r&b grooves--sometimes all within the framework of one song. With the classic JXB body design, his signature bass is tonally articulate and aggressive - while being lightweight and balanced - with a fast neck and perfect fretwork. That means it's easy to hold and and easy to play without fatigue, and it serves up all the tones your set demands. Drawing on inspiration from a traditional 1978 Jazz bass body style, Kevin Brubaker modified the body cutaways around the lower horn and behind, creating new ease of access to upper registers. Doing that, he actually created something new with a custom feel with his Maryland-built JXB-5 SJ Standard Steve Jenkins Signature bass.

BRUBAKER BOLT-THRU TECHNOLOGY NECK JOINT

The Brubaker Bolt-Thru neck joint is a combination of bolt-on and neck-thru construction. A key ingredient of Brubaker basses that gives you the flexibility of two separable pieces, without sacrificing tone and comfort. Bolt-Thru construction results in excellent attack with greater sustain, more clarity and more focus on the tonality of the note. The best of both worlds.

THE ELECTRONICS

The controls for the JXB Standard bass are: master volume, neck-pickup volume, bridge-pickup volume, master tone, and a vintage/modern switch. Brubaker chose a pair of Aguilar Dual Single Coil pickups for this Steve Jenkins signature model, giving it that classic J-style tone. The Aguilar hum-canceling pickups feature a split-coil design that allows you to get any pickup level combination without 60-cycle hum while retaining natural, organic tone. Hipshot Ultralight tuners and a Hipshot Kickass bridge complete the Standard arsenal on this bass.
