Some questions have the nearly chemical ability to keep you awake when your body wants nothing more than the solace of slumber.
Here's a bass that has as many questions around it as a cheerleader has running backs around her at the prom.
I'll tell you what I know. Joel Barker had the idea. Joel Barker brought a 6 string bass guitar to the shop and he and Lee Barker made a big bass out of a little bass.
What was the brand of the bass? Neither remembers. "Maybe Lyle," offers Joel. "Beats me," affirms Lee.
Does it play? Indeed. Does it sound like a Barker Bass? Hmmm. Well, it sounds like a Barker Bass would sound if it had an additional string. Or two. With an onboard preamp.
$2000 plus shipping. One only. Six strings Five knobs. Unlimited possibilities.
