I'm itching to pull the trigger on a unique FBass that just came up for sale, but since I'll have to buy without being able to lay my hands on it, I am looking to youse folks for your two cents. I've seen video of this exact bass and love the sound, and have played a couple of FBasses so I know I like the feel. But I haven't had the opportunity to play them for very long. So, bottom line: Are Fbasses too heavy? Lighter 5 strings from FBass always seem to hover around 10 lb (this one apparently weighs around 9lb 12 oz). People say they "balance well"; does this actually have an effect on how it feels after an hour-long gig?
