Well guys, I bought the 6-string F-Bass I found in Kitchener....sorry, berklee46 (see My New Bass! thread). . Bought from the original owner, the deal - $2200 CAD ($1375 USD) was unbelieveable!! It was originaly a fretless 6-string, hand-made in 1988 by George Furlanetto, modified by him to a fretted model with a thinned and profiled neck and a modified body for the original owner. It is a custom neck-through, as opposed to the stock bolt-ons that are standard today with F-Basses. After 15 years of playing it sounds GORGEOUS, no matter what the style and tone requested. The action is effortless, and the neck profile makes playing at all frets seem unconscious even with my small fingers. I was thinking of adding a pre-amp and refinishing the slight wear, but it sounds so incredible, I don't want to mess with it! The volume pots are perfect, the tone pot and phase switch need some cleaning (all are original), but this is a GEM!!! (Hey hexbass - I now know what you mean). Orgasm, Orgasm, orgasm.......!!! Pics to come.
