    Beautiful F bass VF5-J for sale. I bought it directly from F bass 2 years ago from their "In stock instruments", and gigged with it a dozen times. Excellent condition - no scratches or nicks, pickguard has some slight wear. I really encourage you to look at F Bass's website for more info on this bass: VF - Vintage Series | F Bass, Inc (note that their prices are USD).

    Some specs:
    - body is made from limba (unique for VF basses)
    - Maple neck, Rosewood fingerboard with white binding, white dot inlays
    - Tobacco Burst with Satin sheen
    - 19mm string spacing
    - Aguilar 5J-HC pickups, 70's spacing

    If you have all the black "active boost" knobs at 0 and switch between passive and active, there is no tone difference (that I can notice!). It's pretty amazing. The chrome knobs are V V T.

    I don't remember the exact weight from the website, but it's nice and light... scale shows it's just under 9 lbs.

    Comes with Fbass gig bag.

    The only reason I'm selling is because I don't gig enough anymore, so I can't justify having this nice of a bass just sitting around.

    Price does not include shippping/handling.

    Where in Ontario are you? I have one of the original VF basses. Weighs a ton. I'd have to move mine before I could consider buying. It would be interesting to compare tone.
