    I just received this incredible bass, but something has come up and I need the cash. So unfortunately, I need to pass this on already to the next lucky individual. This bass was a 2008 NAMM show bass. It has a crazy figured Cocobolo top. This bass has all the usual wonderful FBass qualities: full and punchy fingerstyle tones, crisp and articulate slap tones and amazing playability.

    figured Cocobolo top
    Ash body
    One-piece maple neck
    Maple fingerboard with matching Cocobolo block inlays
    22 frets
    34.5 scale
    9.4 lbs
    plush FBass gig bag

    The bass is in excellent condition with just a couple of small scuffs on the bottom and side and some very faint swirling on the gloss top around the G string.

    If you were to go the FBass web site and build this bass, it costs nearly $7000.

    I'm asking a little less than what I just paid. Asking $3650. Split shipping. CONUS sales only. Payment by PayPal. Sorry, but NO Trades.

    Thanks for the comments guys.

    bassman10, I may be willing to ship to Canada. I would pay $50 towards shipping. Let me know if you're interested and I can look into it more.

    The stand is an older Quik Lok stand. It's very stable.
