    I have just received my new(used) F-Bass BN5. It is amazing! I just used it at our last band practice, and it performed perfectly. I can honestly say that it is the best sounding bass for Funk and R&B that I have ever played! It feels great, sounds great, what more could I ask for?!! Check it out:

    P.S. I ended up selling the Fodera to purchase this one. The F-Bass kills the Fodera in tone. Better B, better presence. I love it!

    Thanks guys. I really love this bass. You really like the blue? I was considering getting it refinned to an aged cherry burst. We'll see though....:)

    No way, man! Just save up and get another. Everybody should have a Studio model also.

    I like the blue ;) As you can see from my signature line and avatar I'm kinda partial to the F.

    I just wish that I'd known that you were going to sell the Fodera. I really thought that it was an incredible looking bass.

    The Fodera was a great looking bass, but it wasn't a great sounding bass. The F-bass has a much better tone, and a much better low B. I think I am going to buy an F-Bass studio in the summer.
