I am the 2nd owner of this incredible bass. This bass produces incredible sounds from vintage to modern jazz to Jaco finger style tones. This is a 2002 model that is in excellent to mint condition (no paint chips or dings). It has been pampered. Everything works as originally designed. From talking to George at F Bass, the preamp in this bass has hotter output than the ones produced today. It's preamp indeed has plenty of headroom and output. The controls are volume-volume-tone-bass-midrange-treble. There's a pull single coil (vs hum cancelling) and a pull passive control. This is one of the finest basses I've ever owned. It is well crafted, very low action and fast neck. Other specs: Ash body, maple neck/finger board. This bass is all original, no mods. Weight 9.6lbs. Hard shell case included. Price includes Paypal and FEDEX ground shipping. For more info or questions, please start a conversation. NO trade offers please, only interested in selling. I'm selling this bass because I'm scaling down my collection. Reasonable offers will be entertained...low ball offers will receive no reply. These basses sell new for $4k plus.
