    Well I got her this morning and all I have to say is WOW!!! This is the easiest playing bass I have ever played and I am not a 5 string player. I can't believe how good this bass sounds. I love my Laklands but this F is THE Bass!!!

    Congrats Joey! I was wondering if you would hear and feel the magic, especially compared to your beloved Laklands. F Basses are the Nth degree for me too. I really love my Lakland DJ5 because for its great Jazz Bass look, sound and vibe, but my F Bass offers that much more versatility, performance and then some. And the F Bass neck profile and scale is mucg friendlier than my Lakland DJ5 for my hands.

    My F Bass BN5 is my Number one bass. It slaps like Marcus, growls like Geddy, can make Jaco-like Jazz bass tones, does R&B like Jamerson and more! The F Bass Preamp is simply the most musical and versatile I've played not to mention easy to dial in a great sound quick!

    Let us hear a review of your F Bass compared to your Laklands if you get a chance. Congrats again. Gary

    WOW! First thought that came to my mind... "Blonde zebra..."

    That's not meant to be a slam... kind of a Rorschach Test thing... Cool looking axe, man! Good luck with it... :cool:
  14. Man, that grain kills everybody.. Wow.. :eek:
    Congrats. Let's keep her warm up.. :bassist:

    I'm glad your are going to be able to keep it.
    Whatever it's going to cost you with the wife I hope it is of a lesser value. Work harder at covering your tracks. That's what I do.

    I am with you two. I find out what she likes and ebay it off a reputable seller. She wanted a gucci 5502, picked up a almost unused one on the bay for 200. But damn if she won't stoked!

    Only reason I am saying that is cause I am doing the same dance right now. And it is to ok the purchase of a custom F bass!!!! I gotta say, I think this is my vibe! Congrats, that thing is a beauty
