I'm selling my near mint condition FBass VF5 for a GREAT price! I bought the bass new from Bass Central about a month ago and fell in love with it. This is hands down the best Jazz style bass I've ever played. The sound is punchy & clear, the balance is perfect & it plays in tune better than any bass I have. I'm ONLY selling because, at 6'4", 230lbs with big hands, the standard 44mm nut spacing is a little tight for me. I spoke to George Furlanetto (great guy to deal with) about it and decided to buy another VF5 that he had in stock that had a wider nut. That second bass is the one I'm going to keep so I need to move this one fast to ease the strain on the budget :-).

Nut Width : 44mm (1 3/4")
Width at Last Fret 76mm (3")
Fingerboard Radius 9" - 14"

This bass is wired with master volume pan & I will include an extra volume pot if you prefer to go Vol/Vol. It also has a graphite nut & the factory bone nut will be included as well.
Condition is 9.9/10. Just a little swirling on the pickguard from a few weeks of light playing. LIST PRICE ON THIS BASS IS $3650. SELLING FOR $2675 SHIPPED TO CONUS! Bass will come with a new FBass/Contego gig case. I prefer money order or bank check but will also accept PayPal.
COME GET IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
