    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.


    It's 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, Brubaker modified the body cutaways around the lower horn and behind, creating new ease of access to the upper registers. Doing that, he actually created something new with a custom feel with his Maryland-built JXB Standard Series bass.


    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 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 AG 4J-HC hum-cancelling pickups for J-style tone and silent operation. 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. This is then combined with the Bartolini 3 Band preamp for this active model. Hipshot Ultralight tuners and a Babicz Full Contact bridge complete the Standard arsenal on this bass.
