    Hi Folks,
    Just trying to break even as cost for shipping have gone up. Price is shipped CONUS!
    So my exploration into the multiple strings has gone. I’m just not that guy:crying: but I gave it the old college try!

    Folks this instrument is over 15 years and incredibly clean. But if your looking for total perfection, Heaven is not a place on Earth.
    After careful review there are tiny dings and dents but nothing the pierces through into the body.
    Fwiw full disclosure "Sold as is"
    Weight 10.4 on my digital scale
    Neck profile feels like a C.

    Hey there’s a couple of extras that where included that I pass on.

    Thanks TB!

    The Bart G66 pickups and Bart preamp alone are $350-400. The Hipshot A bridge and Ultralight tuners are another $200. It also looks like someone added Hipshot knobs, which are not cheap either. Assuming the bass has no big issues this is an excellent deal for someone.

    Up for sale is this Fernandes FRB-105. This is a top of the line made in Japan model. It features a beautiful transparent blue finish on an ash body, 3 piece maple neck, and a very nice rosewood board. It is a 34" scale, string spacing is 17.5mm

    Folks if anyone was ever curious about a 6 string, I’m here to tell you won’t find one as upgraded at this price point period. Great way to get an upscale bass at a medium price point.

    Made in Japan, vintage, solid, Electronics and pickups are right there with many boutique brands. Neck straight, truss rod smooth, great action.
    Don’t hesitate, this is the real deal.

    I’m considering trades for a MIM Jazz five!!
