    F Bass Limited Edition 40th Anniversary VF4 PJ - this is #1 of the series. Completely preserved from when it was built and as new.


    Specs:
    -New body shape that amalgamates the aesthetics of the original '78 and comfort & balance of modern F Basses

    -African Mahogany body with a Northern Ash tone block and Ebony veneers

    -Extended range 24 fret Macassar Ebony fingerboard with 40th Anniversary lion inlay (homage to the original '78)

    -9-14" compound fingerboard radius

    -42mm nut width

    -34" scale length

    -5pc Hardrock Canadian Maple neck with Wenge stringers

    -Aguilar 4P-60 & 4J-HC pickups

    -F Bass 3 band preamp for Bass Boost, Mid Boost, & Treble Boost

    -Hipshot Kickass bridge with Brass saddles (19mm string spacing)

    -Finished in a hand-rubbed oil

    -Weight: 9lbs 6oz


    TONE (as described by F Bass):
    -The African Mahogany produces a warm & woody tone with a very strong midrange.

    -The Ash tone block and Mac Ebony fingerboard tighten up the big bottom end and ensure the sweet top end is articulate and can bite when asked.

    -The 3pc body, 5pc neck, and Hipshot Kickass bridge with Brass saddles give us a healthy amount of compression - which translates to a focused tone with amazing sustain.

    -The Aguilar pickups are our favorite vintage reproductions made with Heavy Formvar wire and Alnico V magnets. The P pickup is big, round, and wooly with just the right amount of midrange honk to cut through a mix. The bridge pickup is clear and aggressive and responds well to playing dynamics.

    -The F Bass preamp has been developed over three decades and is as transparent as they come. With all of the effort that goes into the design and sourcing of high-end materials, the last thing we want to do is color with funky electronics....so you can boost the lows, mids, and highs without altering the inherent tonal characteristics.
