  1. Hi Guys!



    I received this morning, while waking up, an interesting mail by George Furlanetto!
    The first pics of my under construction BN5!
    With my one piece ash back and my maple burl top...
    The result is exciting...I'm more than happy, There will be with the bass a three piece maple neck, flamed! with a birdseye fingerboard.
    I still have to choose my hardware color....

    Wow... like wow :eek: It's gorgeous!
    What kinda finish is that on the bass? It's one of the nicest I've seen on an fbass so far!
    I agree with adrian - chrome (or satin) would go very well with that :)

    Congrats Vince! There is no one more deserving than my friend in Friend who's very name is: Vince LOVES F!

    Any hardware on that bass will look good! Vicne fancies Gold. Go Figure. I personally prefer Chrome, but that is just my opinion. If ever there was a top that Gold hardware might work well on, I think this is the top.

    That is a Burl top I believe. Love the Natural color. And that one piece Solid Ash Body is beyond killer! You're going to have a VERY sweet bass Vince! - Gary
  6. Hi Adrian!
    Thanks a lot, I more and more and more than excited, it's the F I had in my head....
    I'll appreciate it at it's just value....
    Can't wait to play it, yours is really beauty too! ;)
  7. Hey rusty!

    Thanks! The color is natural, the bass is waiting to be lacquered.....
    The color is narturally dark, but I think it is much darker because of the picture....

    Very nice Vince !!
  9. Was down talking to George the other day to get a price for a "custom" 4 stringer...won't be cheap, but I was playing the one he had on the wall, and I know it'll be worth it.

    I'll bet Vince is even more impatient to see it finished! LOL That once piece back is the bomb. I can't wait to see what it will look like with Grain enhancement. That grain will just jump on the bass!
  13. Thanks guys...
    I'll post pics as soon as I can! I can't wait to see it finished too...

    Normally I'm not a big fan of burl tops, but that one is just sweet. :eek:
  17. I wish I have money to order from George..
    maybe someday.. :(
  18. Awesome!The body ash is terrific the burl top is a beauty...
    For the hardware color Chrome or black would be just fine.

    PS:Si jamais elle a froid en Haute-Savoie, tu pourras l'envoyer en Bretagne.elle sera en securité avec la mienne...:D
  19. AWESOME!!!

    Chrome or black hardware should look good. Fs are F'in Fantastic!!!!
