    SOLD

    Factory specs cab be found HERE

    I purchased this bass new/One owner. Bass is in Like New condition. Includes factory installed Dunlop strap locks, F-Bass comfort strap, F-Bass case, original paper work, new 9V alkaline battery, new set of F-bass strings (uninstalled), stainless steel metric ruler for setup and OEM hex wrenches.

    This bass has very low play time. I went through a phase looking for "the five string". Went through many basses and this one was the keeper. I ended up devoting myself to four strings in short order, but kept this bass "just in case". It is the finest musical instrument that I have ever owned (no joke), other than being a five string. It has spent most of it's life in my smoke-free home. It has been to a couple of gigs and one studio session, all smoke-free environments. These days I am concentrating on jazz guitar and rarely play four string bass. This instrument has become a possession instead of a tool' time for it to be a tool for someone else who will use it. Check my feedback here and on flee bay - buy with confidence.

    Ships in original shipping container that bass was received in. Choice of shipping methods, but must ship insured. Shipping weight is 53" x 19" x 9". Shipping weight is 26 lbs.

    This is a very fine bass! I had one. Bump bro

     
  3. Thank you
     
  4. FWIW, if you are looking for a "cream puff", this is it. Like new, low play time killer bass at a great price - make an offer!

  5. Priced reduced - $2,500 shipped within CONUS. This is an incredible deal on a F-Bass in this condition. You will not be disappointed!

    I'm surprised this is still around. I love this brown burst finish; if I didn't already have a BN5 I'd definitely get this one.

    If anyone is wondering what this bass sounds like, check out Tim's brown burst BN5:

    This is killing me. Someone needs to grab my Monique Dove Cage or Lakland Bob Glaub PJ4 so I can snag this:bassist:

  8. ....and two recordings done with the actual bass being sold in this thread, in genres typically not associated with F-Bass. They buried me in the mix a bit, but I wasn't 'the star' :^/

    I've heard the market is somewhat soft lately. Hold on though; your price is more than reasonable. In fact, the only reason I haven't bought it from you is I already have one.

    Hm... I guess I could use two... ;-)
     
  12. Thanks Tom!
