This is a very beautiful 1987 F Bass fretless 5 string with neck-through construction. It's also a 34" scale which is rare for these basses.
It sports passive electronics with custom F Bass pickups. Simple Vol/Vol/Tone with coil tap switch. Ebony board with fret position hash marks and pearl dots from the octave up.
The bass originally had a different bridge but George installed the current bridge and modified it to allow it to be strung through the body. The finish is a very beautiful nitro teal green that is quite hard to photograph accurately. I will try to take some outside photos to show it's true color better.
There are no issues with this bass. It's a fabulous player with killer F Bass fretless tone. The fingerboard was refurbished this past spring by George himself along with a full setup. It includes a brand new F Bass gig bag.
I am only offering this bass up for sale because I recently bought a Vadim that I find I am a little more comfortable with! $2,495.00 OBO Shipped and Insured in the CONUS
I will consider a trade for an equal value 34" fretted 5 string jazz bass. Less than 10 pounds please.....
Something along the lines of a Sadowsky, MBass, Pavel, Fodera NYC, Xotic XJ,. You get the idea!
I would also consider a recent Deluxe Fender 5 String Jazz Bass plus some cash!
