    I am selling my extremely nice 2015 FBass BN5. This bass is marked as a 2nd due to small mineral stain on the back of the neck near the headstock. You can see it clearly in the attached photos. It is purely cosmetic. You cannot feel it. If it were any other company it wouldn't be a 2nd but it's Fbass. As a result they sold this bass for a few hundred dollars less than the regular price.
    I have priced it accordingly.
    Other than the aforementioned "blemish", the bass is mint. It has been lightly used and babied when it was played. It sounds and plays incredibly as do all FBass's. I am selling because I am looking for a more aggressive bass. I play mostly hard rock and the FBass works well for that but it is a little too polite for every day use for me. The 3 band pre on these things is incredible and highly usable. They come with a passive tone control that works in active and passive mode. The passive tone is incredible and this bass could very easily be used in passive mode all the time but the 3 band gives it incredible versatility.
    The fingerboard is a very nice birdseye maple and the finish is satiny and smooth. This bass looks even nicer in person than in the photos.

    Specs are as follows

    Nut Width : 45mm (1 3/4")
    Width at Last Fret 80mm (3 1/8")
    Fingerboard Radius 10" - 16"
    Scale Length 34.5"
    Number of Frets 22
    String Spacing at Bridge 19mm (3/4")
    Neck Wood 3 piece quarter-sawn Maple
    Fingerboard Wood Quarter-Sawn Birds Eye Maple
    Body Wood Northern Ash
    Tuners Chrome Gotoh tuners with 20:1 ratio
    Bridge Chrome Hipshot B Style
    Knobs Handmade African Blackwood
    Pickups Two F Bass stacked, single coil/hum-cancelling, magnetic pickups
    Strings F Bass Stainless Steel Exposed Core

    The bass weights in under 8lbs on my crumby bathroom scale. It is a very light bass and super easy to play.

    Selling for $2450 shipped in North America with FBass gig bag.

    I am potentially open to trades but my trade interests are pretty limited. I would be looking for only 5 strings and as mentioned above would prefer modern or slightly aggressive instruments. A US Spector would be at the top of my list. A NS2 or NS5. Also would be very interested in Dingwalls (I have a ABZ5 but a Super PJ would be amazing) and possibly a Warwick P-Nut. I prefer cash though.

    The dot inlays are real. They were installed by FBass. It is a $125-$150 option.
