    Thanks for remembering us, the former Fbass owners.

    I will definitely belong to that club again someday.

    I wonder what George is going to plan for us for the year to come.

    I know that I like the new "vintage" style basses he makes.

    But Iwould love to find a nice 6 string Fbass.

    Had a question about the tonal differences between the passive VF5 and active VF5, so I recorded a video! It's baking in the oven right now, and should be ready soon.

    Here's the link:

    Subscribed.

    Also, nice BNF5! Also, nice clip of the VF5 passive and active.

    Onward!

    No problem (remembering the former owners). Besides, it gives us links to your guys' old basses so we can gawk and ogle posthumously.

    Your BN6 was a real looker too. I think it would have been a good mate for my AC6 actually. Sometimes I think I'd like to sell my BN6 if I could get a BN6 that sounds just like it but with a natural wood look like this... or perhaps a brown burst finish like thndrstk6 has been mocking up.

    For everyone's ogling, here is lack.rose1402's former BN6.

    Another great clip, D.

    If I could suggest something for the next clip, I'd duck the back loop a bit more so we could hear the finger style playing a bit better, although I certainly don't mind hearing that riff with that wonderful tone either! :bassist:
     
  11. That's is one of the first Fbasses I ever saw and it's still one of the most amazing ones I've ever seen. I wish I knew who had it. I would buy it off them in a heart beat (when I have the money that is).
     
  12. Yep, stunning bass!

    That's a good suggestion. I'm still trying to get a decent recording setup going. I'm having a heck of a time getting a mic to work at the same time with the rest of the gear, but it's getting better.

    Oh, and that last BN6 is the shizz!

    My personal favourite is the last one - the CocoBolo BN5. I recently played a pre-owned Studio 5 and a few brand new VF5s at Cosmo Music here in central Ontario, including a flawless sunburst Alder/Rosewood VF5 and I have to say those VF instruments were nothing short of exemplary.

    Kudos to George and Co. as the VFs are truly worthy of joining the world class F Bass lineage!:D

    Oooh! I LOVE it when you do that! Hadn't heard from you for a bit, Paul, good to see you around here.

    My favorite is that last BN5 as well, although I saw plenty above it that I'd love to see in my bandroom! :bassist:
