I Have More Pictures On Request... Instruments previously built and distributed by Philip Kubicki, LLC in Laconia, NH, Bayfield, CO, and Santa Barbara, CA between 1973 and 2013. Philip Kubicki was hired by Roger Rossmeisl in 1964 at Fender for the acoustic guitar development. In 1967, Philip became Rossmeisl's assistant in the Research and Development department for all guitar development. Fender models LTD, Montego, and prototypes for Jimi Hendrix and George Harrision were produced during Kubicki's tenure. Kubicki left Fender in 1973 and gained a reputation for his custom guitar building. He formed his own company, Philip Kubicki Technology (PKT) to produce acoustic guitars, components (especially high quality necks), and 7/8-size short scale travel electric guitars.
In 1983, Kubicki formalized design plans for the Ex Factor 4 bass. This revolutionary headless-designed bass debuted in 1985.
By 1992, the deal was dissolved, and Kubicki regained control of his bass designs. Basses with serial numbers 1287 through 3049 were produced by Fender between 1988 and 1991. By the end of 2005, 3,700 bass guitars had been produced by Kubicki.
Kubicki retired and moved to Laconia, NH where he continued to produce custom orders of the Ex Factor Bass. Kubicki passed away on March 18, 2013 after a short battle with cancer.Human factors were the inspiration for the Factor bass. The design criteria were to develop a bass that. Was balanced to naturally rest in playing position and was absolutely not head heavy. Could be fine-tuned with a body-mounted tuner. Offered a quick way to D tune the bass without changing string tension or having to transpose.
Had a neck that was more stable than solid wood without resorting to the heavy, cold, non-adjustable, and expensive graphite alternative. Used only unique, in house-designed electronic components. Had an original outward appearance that would be aesthetically pleasing! Yes there are some paint chips on sides that were touched up on back also (belt buckle) But the wood is in mint to near mint no dents no repairs to wood..The item "1985 Philip Kubicki Ex Factor Bass with Hardshell Case Made By Philip 1985 USA" is in sale since Tuesday, November 15, 2016.
