    So I am in the late stages of building a house and looking at paring down the collection some. Aside from any $$$, it's a shame that some of these amazing instruments are not getting played. I'll be posting a few instruments over the next few days.

    First up is an F Bass BN5 in piano black with a maple board - the classic black and maple. 8.5 lbs on the bathroom scale. F Bass active preamp, stacked hum cancelling pickups with single coil split option, killer sound and playability. It's on the block because I am playing wider necked 5 strings and haven't touched this since I got my Fodera - and it's a shame this this isn't getting played. Capable of being Full, thick, aggressive when it needs to be or subtle and mellow.

    Overall in good condition - a few dings and scratches, the worst of which is in the pics. Nothing that affects playability. Bass was made in 97, so it's in good shape for a 20 year old bass, but it is still a 20 year old bass. A little pickup paint wear, which is typical for F Basses. I have had it for about 10 years or so.

    Asking $2800 plus shipping. Local pickup in New Orleans is fine. As for trades, I am only interested in vintage Jazz basses, Fender Custom Shop Jazz basses, MIA G&L Basses, and Sadowsky basses, especially 5 strings with maple necks and wide boards. +- Cash as needed.

    No sticker on the headstock but I pulled the back cover (sticker was in the control cavity)- bass was made in 1997. Edited above.

    Well, for those who have always wanted an f-bass, this is a crazy good deal. This should be gone already. Somebody take the leap!:)
