    ***PRICE DROP!!***

    For Sale or Trade is my Mid 90's Fbass BNF 5!

    This one is unique in that not only does it have the much sought after Ebony Bridge but it has the Piezo system under the bridge along with the Fbass pups and Pre-Amp.

    The color is amazing, Black/Turquoise Ceruse!

    Here are the Specs!

    Fbass BNF5
    Ash Boby
    Turquoise Ceruse
    Maple Neck (Plays and feels great)
    Ebony Fingerboard (In great condition) (side lines)
    Black Ebony Head stock
    Ebony Thumb Rest between pups
    Ebony Bridge with under saddle Peizo!
    Fbass Pups
    Fbass Preamp
    6 Controls: Volume (Push/Pull Active/Passive) Mag Pickup Blend, Peizo/Mag Pup Blend, Treble, Mid, Bass (Boost only) (Piezo volume attenuation in control cavity)
    Gig Bag Included (in good condition, nothing to write home about)
    New Fbass Strings installed

    This fretless just absolutely sings! It really can go from Jaco to Pino and Alain Caron. The neck is fast and the fingerboard looks and feels great. Punchy, articulate, warm.. the list goes on and on. Mwah for days if you want. Set up is perfect.

    It has some bumps here and there dings in the headstock and swirling as you would expect on a Fbass of this age but nothing major! Looks great! Only reason Im selling is cause Im looking for one of the basses I have listed as Trades below.

    Price: $2999.99 shipped US only

    Trades:

    Ken Smith BT 5/6 (90's Big Headstock 3knob preferred but will look at all)
    Pre-Gibson Tobias Classic or Signature 5 (Basic 5 ok but plus cash) must be all orginal
    MTD 635/535
    MTD Saratoga 5
    Fbass BNF 6 (Maybe)
    Skjold 5/6
    Fodera Standard 4 String

    Some quick pics, will add more later:
