    I picked up my new bass today. It is a beauty. Natural finish, the tone is to die for. I bought it from Bass Atlanta. Great experience!!! I can't wait to play it live. May 30 my band -the Barry Richman Band- opens for Jonas Hellborg and Jeff Sipe at the Neverland Farms music fest in Cleveland, Ga.I can't wait to try out the new bass. I am really looking forward to hearing Jonas play. I will give a review on the bass after the gig.

    I am a little slow. If I can figure it out I will post some pics. Maybe Randy from Bass Atlanta will post the Pics he took today. Peace.

    Congrats on the F Bass, welcome to the club. Thanks to Adrian and his need to spread F Basses throughout the land :D , I bought one last year. I was looking for a used one and all it took was for him to send me some pictures of a beautiful blue BN 5 and I caved in.

    The F has by far been the easiest bass I have ever played mainly in part of the neck profile, but the 19mm string spacing is for me too and it balances perfect with no neck dive at all. Before purchasing the F, I never have had any experience with a J bass so I wasn't too sure what to expect tone wise until I plugged it in. As soon as I did I loved it right away and it is now my main bass, period. Matter of fact, I liked the J Bass tone and the F Bass so much I was going to buy a BN 4 but, I got a hell of a deal on a Suhr J Bass so I had to buy it. I now have the J Bass bug licked - I think

    Anyway, enjoy
