F Bass BN5 Buckeye Burl Top

Discussion in '[OLD FORUM] Bass Guitars, Amps, and Accessories: F' started by MikeBass, May 30, 2005.

    F Bass BN5
    $2500 shipped!!!! (will take PayPal-fees on you though!!)
    International shipping OK, but shipping is not included!
    Ash body, birdseye maple fingerboard and neck, buckeye burl top and matching headstock.
    F Bass 3 band pre-amp & pick-ups. Gig bag.

    It used to belong to our own Mr. Adrian Garcia and ended up in my hands as part of a trade deal for another bass I owned.

    While it is sweet, plays like butta and is as fat as a cheap hooker, it's not quite Me!

    Here it is:
    F Bass

    US price on this new is $4899 from F Bass.

    There is finish checking like mad from the ultra thin nitro-cellulose finish.
    George Furlanetto said this finish checking is natural, will not affect the bass and is due to the thin finish on it.
    Dig it, a few more:

    I'll take a trade for a nice Sadowsky PJ5 or JJ5 with a nice maple top and rosewood fingerboard (would like ash body).
    I have a Metro RV5, so I don't want one of those, I would like another "pretty" Sadowsky.
    Celinder with same specs. or Tyler 5.

    Man, thats a really great looking bass :eek:

    I guess this is the final entry on the sadowsky vs. F bass thread from you :D
  4. Well, yeah, I guess it is!!!
    Seriously, it's a sweet bass, but I'm more of a Sadowsky guy.

    Skamaniac- I'm really looking to move the bass either cash wise or trade for a Sad. Unless your willing to make me an offer that I would be kinda silly to pass up, well, I'm gonna have to pass up your trade.
    I'm sure your bass is sweet, but not what I was thinking.

    What about an MTD 535 with tulipwood/myrtle and all wenge neck, the "classic" recipe?
  8. pm sent
    $2700 obo.
    Sadowsky JJ5 or PJ5, Tyler 5, Celinder 5.
  10. I've played this bass... it's SMOKING! Very even, no dead spots and that punchy, grindy single coil vibe if you want it. I had a BNF5 for a while and it wasn't quite my thing either, but this one blows the one I had away. Good price too.... if I hadn't just bought that Sadowsky......

    If anyone is considering an exotic top FBass... this is the one (IMO)
  11. Thanks man!!!!
    Call me when you get back to Detroit.

    Man I soooo want this bass!

    Unfortunately, if I came home with this, I'd have to find somewhere else to live. :(
    (sorry been getting late in returning PM's-been out of town working)
  20. Is this bass sold?
