    Selling a spectacular FBass VF5 with pristine FBass gig bag. The bass features an Olympic white gloss finish over a northern ash center tone block with ash wings and a maple neck/maple fingerboard combination with matching finished headstock. Electronics include proprietary 3 band FBass preamp comprised of 2 volume controls and a passive tone control with A/P push/pull switch as the upper row of 3 controls, and a three band/boost only tone section for the lower 3 controls. Aguilar HC pickups are placed in 70s JBass locations-this bass is the epitomy of 70s Jazz bass tone in a superior 5 string vehicle. The neck is incredibly comfortable (19 mm spacing at the bridge) and the body seems to melt into your shape. Currently set up with moderately low action using NYXL D'Addarios, the bass has a dead on straight neck (little tension needed on the truss rod) and excellent frets so the action can go cleanly lower than most player's technique could manage to play. The gig bag is extremely high quality and virtually unused.
    The only caveat is that the fingerboard is slightly flawed from the factory, as shown in one of the photos. This flaw is pretty much invisible from more than a couple of feet away and has no impact on tone or playability. As well, there are a couple of very minor dings as shown.
    Price is in USD and includes regular ground shipping in Canada or continental US. I've never shipped outside of North America and am not comfortable doing so. The only trades I may be interested in are for a 5 string US MTD bass.
