    Hey! Just had to share!!! Just got these pics from George F over at F Bass. I've been waiting patiently, and sometimes impatiently for this. Finally, she is done and ready to ship!

    Would love to hear from everyone. What do you think? Should I keep it or send it back? LOL

    Here is a full Body Pic and the Headstock. I am officially blown away! What a masterpiece. George works magic, pure and simple. Guess I should think about changing my Talkbass Logon ID and avatar huh?

  13. You know, I think I actually like the back more than the top.

    Furlanetto's basses just leave me in awe! Everything is just "so right" about them, to me...........drop-dead gorgeous!

    I can't even imagine how that thing must sound!

    That has got to be the best looking F bass I have seen so far, and I have liked every one that I have seen.

    None.
    one thing i've noticed about F Basses is the quality of ash GF uses.

    beautiful!!!

    and his finishes always accentuates the ash grain!

    A gentleman never kisses and tells, and I see that you respect that. :) I bought my bass from Adrian Garcia at Access Bass. I highly recommend working with Adrian. He'll treat you with incredible honesty not only as a dealer, but as a professional bass monster.
