    I love this bass to death, but i find i'm not using it as much because its a 6 string... i think i'm better suited for a 5 string myself.

    so, i dunno, i'm kinda reluctant to sell it, because i dont wanna lose money on it. i guess i would be most interested in trades for 5 string F basses + cash with the pre-amp (new one) i'm only really interested in F bass 5 strings, because well, thats what i'm most comfortable playing...

    this basss was made in 1998, it has a brand new pre-amp, was recently checked over like a month a go by George, i have all the recipts somewhere... it has some lacquer cheking on it, ,a couple dings here and there... nothing major... i'm in no rush really, if i cant get what i want, i'll just keep it.. its a gorgeous bass, and it plays and sounds even better!

    anyways, its the Reddish bass ( its like a caramel burst type deal)

    bnf6. ( this is the pic from which i bought it, it just had an aguilar obp-1 in it)


    i can take more pics later on...
    but if you are interested, pm me and i'll what we can do...

    i think i remember George saying something that this bass is worth close to 6k canadian... so keep that in mind...

    Eric :(

    edit: included is a F bass gig bag.. no strap

    Hi Eric,

    With all the work you've had done on the bass, I'm tempted to buy it back. I do have a BN5 I'm not using...

    Did you buy the pre-amp from George F. and install it yourself? I have a BN5 fretless and would like to install a pre amp. If available,.... what does the pre amp cost from F bass?
    thanks for your info
    Sam :help:

    Hey Guys,

    the pre-amp, ,installed from George, was 700 dollars canadian, WELL WORTH IT

    Richard, i'll pm you

    Kori, i got the belt buckle off E bay, but i'm sure you can find them in toronto somewhere

    and Steve Clark, i seen mikke basses post, ,but i'm curious as to what pre-amp is in it, i'm not aware of F basses having VINTAGE TONE CONTROL ????

    i'm super aware they have a passive tone control, i've been playing them for years...

    but never hae i heard it being refferred to as vintage tone control...

    it is very important to have a F bass Pre-amp in your F bass people!:D:D:D

    no idea

    on my bass, there are 6 knobs; 3 knobs for the pre-amp (trb, mid, bss) and 1 master tone, and 2 for the pickup volumes..

    Bump for a great F Bass fretless!

    Would like to trade if i'm nearer marnz.
    I have the exact sunburst version in 5 w/o preamp.

    I believe this is the alder wings version right?
    According to George, it sings better in the higher register in comparison to the newer ash bodies
