"Brubaker is a US-based guitar brand that is highly regarded by many top professionals.

The NBS-5 is a model with a beautiful double-cut body.
The missing parts of the head and body top materials are filled with shells for a beautiful look.
Some of these are original, but some seem to be later customs.
Some of these are original, but some seem to have been custom made later, and they have been refinished accordingly.

At the same time, the pickup covers and knobs also seem to be custom made.

The neck joint is made by inserting the neck into the body of the guitar, which makes the neck stronger and allows for better playability at the high frets.

The position of the PU is unique and gives it a fat sound.
It has a massive nuance that is different from the sound of the JB series.

The frets are about 70% remaining.
Sleek Elite, the importer of this guitar, seems to have used PLEK to adjust the frets.
The high frets are a little low.
It looks like the fretboard was ground after all the distortion was removed, so the condition will not get worse.

The truss rod is in good working condition, with a fine gauge of 40-125 tensioned, leaving about 120 degrees of width in the tightening direction.
The neck is in good condition.
The body is in good condition with slight cracks in the paint along the wood laminations.
This is probably due to the different shrinkage rate of the wood.
There are not many noticeable dents, but there are some scratches and some damage near the strap pins on the bridge side.

It's not a new beauty, but considering the good condition of the frets and the beauty of the original paint, it's not a bad condition.

The weight is 4.77kg.

It will be delivered to you after GIB's craftsmen adjust it for easy playing.

Comes with original hard case
Comes with a 3-month warranty.
