    Not really sure about this but just feeling it out to see if anyone is really interested at this time. Its a one of a kind BN5 with many unique upgrades:

    -One piece back of neck
    -Small frets
    -Sleeker neck profile with slightly smaller nut width
    -Oil finish
    -Highly figured birdseye maple fretboard
    -Ambrosia maple top
    -Upgraded wiring.. TARA LAB wires between the pups and pre, and then from pre to output jack.

    Just a note-most of these are upcharges also.

    Rest of specs:

    -34 1/2 scale
    -Ash body
    -Propietary stacked FBASS pups ( can be tapped) and pre.
    -Active/passive, humcancelling/single coil, master tone, vol-vol, bass, treble, mid.
    -19mm

    This is an amazing bass with a strong fundamental and warm tones. Between the oil finish, sleeker neck profile and nut width, plus the small frets ,the bass is extremely comfortable and easy to play.

    Looking for reasonable offers. * FOR SALE ONLY, NO TRADES*

    Will ship anywhere but buyer pays shipping outside of above.

    Thanks for looking!

    Weight is just over 10 pounds.

    Very nice balance and there are great low mids on this.

    Forgot to add in the description the wiring upgrade;

    TARA LAB wires between the pups and pre, and from the pre to output jack. Done by George. Although on the subtle side, this actually did make some difference in the clarity and "smoothness " in the tone. I had all my Fbasses wired like that, and some of factory ones were also similarily wired like that here and there.
