    1) Fbass BN4 passive model, made in 1995.

    34" scale, 22 frets, 19 mm string spacing, weights about 8.5 - 9 lb, one piece Alder body , 7 piece neck - Curly Maple, Wenge & Narra, Macassar Ebony fingerboard - radius is 9 - 14 compound. Curly Maple top in Teal Burst color wiht Nitrocellulose finish. The bass is wired as Vol, Blend, Tone and has enough space to add a pre-amp. The bass is in super mint condition - non smoking studio use only. Absolutely no neck dive, and it has a thin shaped neck wiht polyurethane finish, very fast. Don't have any samples to share, but if you want fat & funky sounding bass this is the one. It's very flexible bass - you can make it sound like old school P-Bass or more modern jazz if you blend more of the bridge pup.

    Andrew I have two weeks before it's available, so that gives me enough time to find buyers for both items - together or separate. I just posted it a minute a go, so we'll see how it goes.

    Cheers

    Good, you see now I have a potential client for the U5. If someone else gives me a nice offer for just the BAN then we're in business. But I would prefer to sell and ship to one person.

    Cheers

    Then again maybe he has a very good reason for needing to get the max amount he can from this. How about cutting him some slack and giving him the benefit of the doubt?

    Do not question the seller.

    He can sell it how ever he wants to, for what ever he wants to.

    And you all have to deal with it.

    Oh, my friend, that is a line of argument that you will soon find mistaken.
