    Price:
    $3750
    Strings:
    5
    Location:
    Ontario
    The guys at F-Bass pulled out all the stops on this one! If you ever wanted an F-Bass, this would be on the one to own! It is completely factory stock....but has some very special upgrades:
    -34" Scale
    -Northern Ash Body (More booty than Swamp ash, IMO)
    -East Indian Rosewood Fretboard
    -21 frets
    -Nitro Lacquer Sunburst Finish
    -Weight - 9.96 lbs on my Rapala Fish Scale
    -Alleva Coppolo JB5 Single Coil Pick-ups (Very special and rare!)
    -F-Bass VF Series Preamp
    NOTE: Vol / Vol / Tone + 3 Band Boost Only EQ with switched Active / Passive mode and Tone works in both passive and active modes
    -18mm String Spacing at the bridge
    -1 and 3/4" Nut Width
    -Vintage Tint neck and headstock
    -Custom cut pick guard
    -Condition is 9 / 10 - Some minor marks near the control cavity and swirling on the pick guard, but more or less in mint condition
    -Ships with F-Bass Gig Bag

    Selling price is $3750 U.S. shipped in Canada or to the U.S. with payment via paypal. Overseas shipped priced estimated at $4000 U.S.

    As for trades, here is what might tempt me to let this bass go:
    Alleva Coppolo, Fodera, or Wal
    5 strings preferred, 4's considered
    I have a couple of other basses up for sale / trade right now too.
    As always I say, if you're looking for a great trade offer, you have to offer something great.
    However, in saying this, I reserve the right to come to my senses and keep this bass!
    Enjoy the photos!

    Excellent bass. One important question: Did you clean that scale before you weighed THAT bass? ;)

    Nice! I'll have to admit, I didn't!
    But, I weighed my bass (not the fish) with my dedicated bass (again not the fish) scale!
