    Offering up my F Bass BN5 to a lucky talkbass member. Recent 2017 build, this was one of their first instruments to receive the Burnt Gold Fade finish, as well as their latest tone wood offering. I consider the Alder/Ash body (now a very popular option) a Goldilocks combo. It does the Ash/Maple JB thing but is naturally a bit less scooped with more presence (low-mid/mid content). It can easily be brought back to the more traditional sound with a little EQ... much harder to do the other way around. Couple that with F Bass ergonomics and quality - Versatile Tone Monster! The beauty of the finish is very difficult to capture with any justice, so I've used the studio shots of the actual bass. It's freshly strung with a new set of F Bass strings and ready to go.
