Custom F Basses...Killer ones...

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by VinceLovesF, Mar 8, 2005.

  1. Hi Guys,

    This is not a thread about my new F!
    This is a thread to show you (and I know you people of talkbass are always interested to see some pics! :) ) the basses of a friend from F Bass Forum! Because that very gentle person asked the luthier (George Furlanetto) to do my bass before his bass. In fact he was scheduled before me! So that's kind of a tribute thread.
    That Person, will be a member of Talkbass soon, probably as "Godsbassman".

    So here's his basses:

    His recently acquired F Bass BNF6:
    Specs are:
    -One piece Ash Body
    -Buckeye Top
    -Black Line Veneer
    -Matching Headstock
    -3 Piece Maple Neck
    -Black Hardware

    I think that bass is one of my prefered Fs....Stunning Buckeye top, wonderful color and contrast with the Ash Body, the black line veneer add a certain elegance to the bass..

    Here are the pics:

    Now, this is other F, a BN6:
    Specs are:
    -Ash Body
    -Quilted Maple top
    -BlueBurst Finish
    -Black Line Veneer
    -Ebony Board
    -Matching Headstock


    If you want other pics, go there and search for the same bass....

    Hope you'll enjoy
    Thanks David

    Those are both incredible basses. I sold both those to David (Godsbassman) and have fortunantely been able to put a little time on them. The fretless is probably one of the best I've played, great tone. The fretted is beautiful and also has an incredible sound. Two of the finest basses around.

    Interesting pickups on that first one. What are those? Those aren't "standard" F soapbars, right?
  10. My bet is that they are the standard p/us the lighter wood below is showing. Gorgeous!
