Today i bought my first custom and first 5 string. Its an FBB custom #43. Specs as follows: 5 string. Lacewood/flamed maple wave prototype top. Butternut(white walnut) back. 7 piece maple/jatoba/beech neck. Indian rosewood fret board. 34" scale. 25 frets. Bartolini jazz pups. Aguilar OBP-1 Preamp. Chrome hardware. I am exstatic with this bass, I can't say enough. Now that i have it home and i have been playing with it and set it up i can't put it down. The neck fits like a glove and it sounds amazing! Thanks again goes to Hummingbird, a.k.a. Max for a smooth transaction and it was more than worth the 2.5 hour drive to get it. And thanks to Matt of FBB for making a b*tchin bass. Another fine example of the glory of the talkbass.com classifieds.
