  8. Wow! The Brooks Grabbird is Bass of the Week at NoTreble! https://www.notreble.com/buzz/2020/03/09/bass-of-the-week-brooks-grabbird/

  10. Thank you. The pickup is a "Thunderbird Bass Pickup Vintage Style for Gibson" by EY guitar Music. I'm a huge fan of those pickups.
  11. Here's a video to give you an impression of the sounds of the Brooks Grabbird
