    F Bass BN5, Quilt Maple Top, Bridseye Fingerboard. I bought this new in 2004 by custom order through my good friend Adrian at AccessBass. I own two Bn5's. A pending divorce and financial cicrumstances are the reason for the sale. I need cash, so I can't entertain trade offers.

    This bass has the Master Volume/Blend Option which makes it very versatile and easy to make quick volume adjustments. IT has the usual Active Bass/Mid/Treble and Passive Tone Control.

    There are a couple dings that sadly are obvious to the naked eye. The most noticeable ding is on the top of the headstock. The other ding is where my fingernails caught the stain near the neck joint where I slap with my right hand. They are minor, but visible. The rest of the bass is in outstanding condition. I have many photo's to share and send if interested. Quick sale via USPS Money Order is preferred over paypal.

    All inquiries promptly answered. This is an exceptional Bass. I am asking $2400. This bass has very little playing since I also purchased a Tobacco Burst standar Ash/Maple BN5 as a back up. I decided to play that one to avoid dinging up this bass even worse.

    My bass, and its corresponding retail are shown on the F Bass Website: http://www.fbass.com/tops.html

    Mine is the one that says: BN5, quilted maple top with black accent line, matching headstock, birdseye maple fretboard, cherryburst finish. Owned by Gary Roberts. $ 4,549.00 US

    Thanks! Gary

    brother, sorry to see you have to let the bass go.
    Divorce is a bitter word especially for me, i think you know this. I am REALLY sorry to hear that.
    All the best always, and a bump for a fantastic bass and a good guy !

    Thanks Adrian and AJ. It will all work out and I'll replace this F Bass one day in the future. For now, the sacrifice will help me with the costs associated with parting ways.

    By the way, I am negotiable and am motivated to move the bass asap. - Gary

    The birdseye FB is a stunner! The quilt is 3-dimensional and the enhanced grain back is stellar.
