    I am rationalizing my fretless inventory to a single instrument - an AC5 currently being built by Mr. Furlanetto. This BNF5 is the first of several basses I'll be vending in that process. And a beauty it is. Its tone is the usual deep, full and resonant F Bass signature, with plenty of mwah. I suspect any prospective buyers are fully aware of just how great these instruments are, so I won't go hurling a bunch of superlatives around.

    2011 build. Lined fretless.
    Body: Spalted swamp ash / spalted flamed maple
    Neck: Three piece, quarter-sawn maple
    FB: Gabon ebony
    Nut: Bone
    Scale: 34.5"
    Nut width: 45mm
    String spacing at bridge: 19mm
    PUPs: Single coil stacks, hum cancelling
    Preamp: 3 band EQ, boost only
    Tuners: Gotoh GB70
    Bridge: Hipshot, strings through body
    Weight: 9lbs, 8 oz

    The bass fell of a retailer's wall in Paris, causing a crack at the junction of the neck and headstock. It was returned to George Furlanetto who repaired it and warranted the repair for life. It's not a cosmetic detraction to me, but others may think differently. Included in the pictures on photobucket are shots of the repair.

    New street price would be around the $5000 mark. I'm asking $2800. Reasonable offers entertained. Includes F Bass gig bag. Ships from Canada.

    I am not interested in any trades.

    A teaser pic is attached. The remainder can be seen here:

    Somebody's gonna get a time-out for not buying this bass.
