FOR SALE OR FOR TRADE: This is a top of the line F Bass BN5. Astounding Macassar Ebony top, flame maple fingerboard (hard to see in the photos, but really distinctive in person) and rare, classy Macassar Ebony block inlays, with matching headstock. 34.5" scale; will check weight but lighter than other F's I've played. I have owned 4 F Basses, and this is BY FAR (I cannot emphasize this enough) the best one I've ever seen, played, or heard. It is an amazing instrument on every level. George F. himself played one just like this for years, b/c of his high opinion of the sound of these basses (he told me so in conversation; you can double check w/him). On the F bass website, you can see virtually the same bass for sale... for $8150! The pictures of celebs playing F basses on the web site shows Marcus Miller playing my bass (the exact same one; you can tell by the wood grain). Ships with gig bag (not F bass gigbag, but a good gig bag) and will be professionally packed/shipped. Asking $3800 (PRICE DROP #4) for this bass + shipping. F basses have gone up in price big time since 2008, and you will not find a better deal on this bass anywhere. The bass is in nice condition, but the nitro lacquer is delicate, and there's a small ding on the headstock, as well as some small scratches/4-5 mm areas of lacquer rub off on the pickup covers under the strings. Bass plays absolutely perfectly, and I mean perfect. Pictures do not do this bass justice.
