This color is amazing.
Is this the same bass sold by Donovan at fretspot?
Yes, it's the same one; bought it from new.
Very sweet... Love this bass!!! Putting things together to make this work... Great video of this bass:
How comfortable is a 10.4 lbs like this in your opinion?
I guess I can answer that... having a 10.4lbs F.
It’s alright, it’s not light but it balances very well so totally fine with a good strap.
I know some believe that wood doesn’t impact the sound, but if you can actually hear the difference (I can): heavier Fbass ( sound better to me. I consistently find them punchier with a more focused bottom. 10.4lbs would be a sweet spot for me. If I wasn’t in Europe you wouldn’t even had time to ask the question: I would have bought it already
I share your opinion too, heavier woods, are more rounded
well-balanced in tonality, specially this northern body Ash he uses for this model, very exceptional!
If I had the funds, I would be playing it.!
I am just curious, for the seller, why getting rid of it so soon....
Bass players friends, buy this bass before it's gone!
BTW, Implacable great price!
Agreed on both points. The extended upper horn places the top strap button in a more favorable position for better balance/weight distribution. A well made/padded (I use a 3.5" wide or greater) strap makes a long set a breeze.
The dense Northern Ash that F Bass uses is becoming scarce; the fact that they continue to build them using more (in spite of weight concerns) furthers what @Juzh and I hear. The Furlanettos of course agree.
Let me ask you, Would there be a Weight and Tone difference if this model would be built with a Swamp Ash?
Re. Weight - Yes, I believe so; Tone - Likely, but I couldn't accurately say without a direct comparison.
My comments are solely referring to a BN Series F Bass... while there are plenty of others that also matter, I have experienced brands that these factors had far less of an impact.
Got it , thanks for the info.
One last question, are the wood knobs furnished or finished with High gloss or polyurethane, I can't tell from the picture?
Satin (likely catalyzed-poly) finish on the knobs. Really detailed grain (lighter Ebony) over any others I've owned/seen.
I can add that an Fbass balances and hangs on a strap better than any other instrument I've played, with the exception of a Muckelroy (not meant to be a plug, just a reference point) -- the long upper horn that shifts the instrument to my right works very well for how I like to position the bass.
Also, a near-perfect balancing and positioning will offset a pound or so in weight for me, although I understand that the weight by itself can pose particular challenges to others that good balance can't offset.
