    I will probably regret for the rest of my life selling this bass but debts are killing me and I must sell out some gear.

    This is a mint-condition F-Bass. I cannot say it is new because I own it since February this year, but you won't even notice it has been used. I bought it BRAND NEW from G-Guitars 5 months ago.

    The body is a light swamp ash with black accents and a beautiful buckeye top. The neck is a standard F 21 fret 3 piece quartersawn maple with highly figured birdseye maple fingerboard. This bass has a natural compressed sound from the buckeye top that gives it a very unique punch and clarity. It is great both for slapping, fingerstyle, and with its versatile EQ you can get whatever sound you dream of.

    Never been gigged, never rehersed! Used only at home (smoke-free). It has no dings, nicks, scratches whatsoever. It is 100% clean!

    The photos are the ones G-Guitars pictured when the bass was put for sale on their web site. These are photos of the actual bass, but not taken by me at home. If you need any specific zoom-in please PM me and I will do my best to provide.

    Asking: $3,600 + shipping (I will ship ONLY FedEx fully insured).
    The bass comes with the original F-Bass cordura gig bag, and I will throw in 2 extra LaBella SuperSteps sets + 1 set of F-Bass branded strings (these alone are valued $100!)

    Wow is that pretty. Nice pictures, too, you don't see that very often. I'm no where near that rich right now, but bump for a great looking bass.

    Most people don't know it, but a paypal eCheck only costs the seller (receiver) $5 and costs the buyer (the sender of the cash) nothing. So for those I've sold in recent months, I only accept an eCheck. Only takes 3 - 4 days to clear (no big deal in most cases).

    I didn't measure the action, but it came as is with a great action. George from F also suggested to set the neck dead-straight to keep the action even lower, but I never changed it because it plays great as is.

    I played this bass when it was at G guitars and loved it. I wanted to get it so bad, but didn't have the $$$. :bawl:
