    Just curious...

    • Is it still offered as a product? Didn't see on F-bass website under models.
    • Any NAMM or other pics of BN4s?
    • Does it have a one piece neck (or 3 like BN5/BN6)?
    • I assume similar in sound and vibe to BN5?
    • Thanks!

    Yo wallace!!

    I think he still makes them on a custom order basis. He had one for sale on his site a while back. And there was a lady in Berkeley who had one, IIRC.


    Thinking about F huh????:eyebrow:

    BN4's are available only as a special order.
    3 piece necks are now standard for the necks( better stabability). If you want a 1 piece neck it will cost extra.
    They sound very similar to the BN5's/6's.

    There were no BN4's at the NAMM show....George doesn't build them to keep in stock...not to many people want 4's anymore.

    That sunburst BN4 at bunnybass is a 3 piece neck.

    I think 5's are definately George's thing.

    I have one BN4 with 1pc. Maple, Neck, Alder Body & Flame Maple Top. This is really amazing instruments.
    Also I'm ordering one for my customer. Thus you can order BN4.

    I have White Ceruse BN4, it has the same vibe like the BN5, which I recently got.
    It is now for sale if anybody interested.
