I received this beauty just last week. 2017 build year and it is in dead mint condition. It's a phenomenal bass in all regards, but I prefer a volume/pickup blend layout versus the volume/volume/tone layout on this bass. I'm also open to straight trades or trades +/- cash. High on my list of preference for trades are Sadowsky, MTD 535 or Signature models, Fender CS, Yamaha BBNE2, or TRB 5PII. Other trades will be considered as well. PREAMP: F Bass proprietary CONTROLS: Neck pup volume, Bridge pup volume (pull up for single coil tap; down for hum cancelling), Passive tone control (pull up for passive; down for active); Bass boost, Mid boost, Treble boost Pickups: F Bass Stacked Single Coils (with Hum-Cancelling) Bridge: Hipshot Aluminum B Style (19mm spacing) NECK 34.5" Wood: 3 Piece Quarter-Sawn Maple Fingerboard: Maple Tuners: Gotoh, GB70, mini with 20:1 ratio Truss Rod: Two-Way, 4mm ( 5/32" ) wrench Bone Nut 1 3/4" (45mm) BODY Wood: Northern Ash Finish: Brown Burst / Black Grain Enhance / Matte Sheen Knobs: Handmade Nogal Weight: 10.4lbs It feels much lighter, but I also used the padded SBL bass strap shown in the pics which is tapered 3.75" to 4" and it distributes the weight nicely. I'll throw in the strap for an additional $75. Currently strung with new Fodera nickels. Thanks for looking. Edit: Layaway plans available. Message me for details if interested.
