I just adopted a new bass (on the right) I just wanted to say thanks Adrian!!!! for my new "F-Bass", it is everything you said it would be and more. I am extrememly happy with the sound, fit & finish of this bass, PLUS dealing with you was a real pleasure!! Buying a bass sight unseen on the web was a little scary, especially since I've never played an "F" before, but Adrian hooked me up with what I told him I was after and he followed through with everything....awesome dude, thanks again. gw PS: this forum is great!! and thanks to all for all the great information, I do feel like I found a family of friends .
