    hi, F bass junkies. George sent me a couple of pics that he and his lovely wife took on my recent visit to Niagara Falls- i will soon post the pics I took at the shop, hopefully before I have to leave again tomorrow for 6 days.
    I had a great time, met Christoper who is directing the film on George, and Rob who is his partner, great guys. Got to finally see the shop, I wanted to try out all the basses, but George is selling so fast there was but one bass to try, a killer fretless. I did get to play around with one of Alain Caron's sixers.. amazing.
    Seeing George work his magic was so cool, we also had a great Thai dinner and I was honored that he and his wife came to the show. Thanks, George, for a wonderful instrument! I owe you much! Hope to do this again soon! - peace, Adrian
    - with Sheena Easton at Niagara Falls, during the bows, end of show...
    - George Furlanetto and me, after the show- his masterpiece keeps me sounding better than I really am, and keeps me working - thank you, George!

    Adrian, your love of the F Bass makes me want to try one. Even if it sounded terrible, I could still put it on a stand and just look at it! :cool:

    No chance of it sounding terrible. You get the best of both worlds.

    If you like the ash maple combo you'll probably dig an F bass quite a bit.

    Amazing builder and bass! I couldn't sell mine even though I need the money right now. They are THAT good inside and out! Anybody here had to adjust their F much? I have had mine for about a year and never had to adjust it since I bought it. Congrats on the gig and keep representing the best basses in the world!

    Even keeping my action extremely low, I don't have to adjust often. It takes only a fraction of a turn to dial it back in. Excellent basses and builder.
