    Decided to withdraw the sale at the moment!

    Thought I would never let this baby go, but things need to take care. Fbass VF5 2012 Ash Maple refinished from a plain natural satin to satin blue burst. Plays and sounds great and looks so cool. All is perfect, original electronics setup. The best Jazz bass sound for me, play-ability is top notch in a very boutique feel, all is very balanced. This can really nail 70s tone and at the same time having its own sound of the natural sparkling Fbass vibe. Low B is killing and tight! Weight is around 10-11 lbs. For the closer look of the bass, just click it, it still works though it's written, 'unavailable'.

    Asking 2500 with an SKB TSA hardcase included.

    Here is how the bass sounds:

    Our VF series captures the vibe and accurate tone reproduction of classic '60s and '70s basses, but features modern advantages including easy access to the higher frets, an onboard F Bass preamp, a solid low B string, a modern neck carve, and we offer nearly any option under the sun for true customization. The body shape is similar to that of Fender's Jazz bass so those Fender-exclusive-players will feel right at home. They hang and are carved similarly, however, the edges are rounded a touch more for comfort and the treble horn is curved outwards for those who prefer playing in the seated position.

    The two separate volumes allow you to blend the two pickups in any amount of each, not limiting you to the fixed levels of a blend control. The passive tone control also functions whether in passive or active mode enabling it to modify a different set of frequencies than the ones affected by the active tone controls.

    As with all of our other models, our VFs are handcrafted right here in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.
