BLOG Entry - 2020 November

Well this is an exciting month….After saving up for a new bass for about 18 months I finally took the plunge. Originally I was looking at another Status S4000 or maybe getting one custom made but after much waiting a nice cream (original Phillip Kubicki) Ex-Factor bass came up for sale on It was in Puerto Rico so I wasn’t sure what that meant for shipping (as it turns out there was a shipping and tax component that added to the price considerably $2900USD) but now I have this very beautiful 1989 EX-Factor.

The bass is in great shape just at the seller described, I dropped a new set of 30-90 strings on it and am now just fine tuning the action to make it similar to my red one.

Take care
