  1. Price:
    Putting out a feeler for this incredible F Bass VF5 Custom, bought recently from a fellow TBer. Gig-less times call for gear-purging unfortunately. NOT INTERESTED IN ANY TRADES AT THIS TIME. $3400 USD shipped within Canada/ConUS. Buyer responsible for any customs fees.

    Build year 2013.
    Weight 8.75 lbs.
    21 frets
    Ash body
    Brown Burst finish
    B Style bridge
    Aguilar AG 5J-HC humcancelling pickups
    ’60s pickup position
    F Bass preamp with three band EQ
    Asymetrical Neck profile

    No Pore Filler finish
    34.5” scale

    Includes black F Bass leather strap and Protec gig bag. Currently setup with Dunlop roundwounds.

  4. Can't bring myself to sell this one after all, so I'm marking it "no longer available". That was a close one!
    EDIT:Better financial judgement prevails, back up for sale!

  7. Price drop to $3400!
  8. Local sale fell through, still available!
  9. I've got the 4 string version of this, and it's probably my all-time favorite bass. You simply can't beat these!
