    Up for sale or trade is a truly epic instrument! This is a top tier, custom Fbass Alain Caron Signature fretless model with some major upgrades.
    This is a rare opportunity to own an F-Bass like this one!

    This one is also 34” scale, not the standard 34.5” scale.
    The new price on one of this caliber approaches $10K USD today!

    -Upgraded Flamed Redwood top which contributes to the tone of this bass!
    -Matching headstock cap!
    -34” scale

    -Nut width is 1 and 3/4”
    -String spacing is 19mm (at bridge)
    -Weight is 9.45lbs on my Rapala Fish Scale
    -Condition is excellent with some minor, very tiny nicks as shown in the pictures, not noticeable from 3 feet away
    -Ships in Fbass gig bag

    Price tag is $5995USD $5500USD shipped via FedEx Ground within Canada or to the Continental United States with payment via PayPal. International shipping available at a premium, contact me for details.

    As for trades, brands of high interest:
    Alleva Coppolo, Carl Thompson, Vintage Fenders, Fodera, and Wal.
    I may consider other unique basses and/or some other brands.
    I'm interested mainly in 4 strings lately, but may not be opposed to 5 strings in either fretted or fretless. Send me pictures and specs of what you have if you can via Private Conversation / DM / PM.

    Enjoy the pictures and videos!
    NOTE: I have to rescind my comment with regards to the tapercore strings only being used for this model of bass. It appears you can use full on rounds, maybe even flats or nylon coated, which could prove to be very interesting on this bass. Hmmm, got me thinking now! LOL!

    I'm not sure why, but I greatly prefer the 34" ergonomics to the 34.5" -- you wouldn't think that it would make much of a difference, but it does. :drool:
