    Well, I just got my F Bass BN5 back after four weeks in the shop. I had the electronics switched from V/V/T to V/B/T. They moved the bridge pickup pot with the push-pull pickup splitter to the front, and replaced it with a blend pot in the middle.

    I'm back in love with this unit now. I had forgotten just how bitchen that bass sounds, and now with the proper controls on it, it'll see a ton of action. They also adjusted the neck a bit to lower the action. Plays nice. I love how it still has a tone control and pickup blend in passive mode.

    Oh, you forgot what it looks like? Let me help.

  2. Well, if that is not the best looking bass I have seen. Words fail me.

    It looks like the most insane buckeye burl I've ever seen. In a good way.


    Gorgeous.

    Yeah, I call it a "puke top." I've got an MTD with the same stuff.

    Great bass, but you already knew that. You like it that much more with the blend instead of dual volumes? My last F was volume volume and I liked it.

    All my other basses (except the Roscoe Beck) are volume/blend. I prefer that setup so I don't have to keep readjusting my volumes when I want to favor one pickup. Now they're all the same flavor ... vanilla.

    Amazing looking bass. I'm sure it plays and sounds amazing too. V/B/T sounds interesting but I am totally used to V/V/T from years of playing Jazz basses. V/V/T works for me.

    FBasses kill though. Just had practice last night, it killed. Last week outdoor gig, it killed..., I have never had any regrets aside from not ordering a nice birdseye fretboard. :)
