    I'm selling my near mint condition FBass VF5 for a GREAT price! I bought the bass new from Bass Central about a month ago and fell in love with it. This is hands down the best Jazz style bass I've ever played. The sound is punchy & clear, the balance is perfect & it plays in tune better than any bass I have. I'm ONLY selling because, at 6'4", 230lbs with big hands, the standard 44mm nut spacing is a little tight for me. I spoke to George Furlanetto (great guy to deal with) about it and decided to buy another VF5 that he had in stock that had a wider nut. That second bass is the one I'm going to keep so I need to move this one fast to ease the strain on the budget :).

    Basic specs are:
    Brown Burst
    Nut Width : 44mm (1 3/4")
    Width at Last Fret 76mm (3")
    Fingerboard Radius 9" - 14"
    Scale Length 34"
    Number of Frets 21
    String Spacing at Bridge 19mm (3/4")
    Neck Wood 1 piece slab maple
    Fingerboard Wood Slab maple
    Body Wood Ash
    Tuners Chrome Gotoh tuners with 20:1 ratio
    Bridge Hipshot L Plate Steel
    Bridge Pickup Placement- 70's
    Pick Guard Black/White/Black
    Knobs Chrome and Black Plastic
    Pickups Two F Bass single coil vintage pickups
    Strings DR "Marcus Miller Stainless
    Weight : a little over 10lbs (on bathroom scale)

    This bass is wired with master volume pan & I will include an extra volume pot if you prefer to go Vol/Vol. It also has a graphite nut & the factory bone nut will be included as well.

    Condition is 9.9/10. Just a little swirling on the pickguard from a few weeks of light playing. LIST PRICE ON THIS BASS IS $3650. SELLING FOR $2675 SHIPPED TO CONUS! Bass will come with a new FBass/Contego gig case. I prefer money order or bank check but will also accept PayPal.
    COME GET IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Thanks for looking.

    That's a great deal! If I wasn't trying to build a house and dealing with a few other financial drainage I would be counting nickels and dimes to buy this one. Would even consider selling my lakland 55-60 after comparing the two in person. Ha!

  17. This is crazy that this has been around this long. Might as well just trade for my BN5 to round off you collection. Best of both worlds.
