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!
