    This is more a feeler now but, here's a F bass fretless 5 I bought directly from George and Marcel and they didn't have the time to put it on their website, I jumped on it! Amazing tone, playability, balance...
    So, it's a 2016 model BN5F in sunburst finish, 9,2 lbs, it was made with a 24 fret ebony fingerboard instead of 28 (to allow space for the right playing hand) and it has custom F Bass exposed-pole pickups with the volume/balance/tone/3 band eq preamp (see pics), Hipshot A style bridge. Those pickups give a little more clarity and output at the stock pickup height according to Marcel Furlanetto.
    I would rate the condition to 9,5/10 just because of very little wear on the fretboard. DR Fat Beam strings (45-125) installed by F bass are still on.
    New Fbass gig bag and goodies.

    There's frets marks as you can see on the pics plus dots on the fingerboard in high positions.
