    Up for sale is my 2021 F Bass BN5 Fretless.

    This bass is simply stunning to look at and listen to. It sounds incredible and is in outstanding condition. I’d purchased this to see if it might work for the music I’m playing these days, but I’ve decided that fretted really suits my music best, so haven't played it much at all. Thus, some lucky bassist will get an amazing nearly new F Bass fretless for $1500 less and without the 18 month build time! And the specs are awesome.

    Cosmetically, there are two very minor issues: a small mark in the finish behind the bridge and some very minimal wear on the ebony fingerboard from string contact. Aside from that, it is clean and beautiful with the incredible craftsmanship and playability you’d expect from F Bass.

    Comes with a premium F Bass gig bag and has been strung with brand new La Bella 760FS-B-TB Deep Talkin' Bass Stainless Steel Flat Wounds.

    $5400 shipped CONUS. PayPal FF, Venmo, or Zelle. No trades please.

    My goodness. If I wasn’t already sitting on a BNF5 I’d be thinking about this.

    I’m tempted to buy this and put frets on it via Plek to accompany my AC5. I mean the lines are already there right!?!
