    I LOVE this thing! I'll post a review later (although I'm sure you've heard it all before from other happy F Bass users), but wanted to get the pix up.

    Very nice.

    bit of a nube here, what sets an F bass apart. I know the difference between a P and a J. But what is an F.
  4. f bass is the name brand. Try a google search. They have a pretty good site.

    The F represents the builder's (George Furlanetto) last name.

    Very nice bass. I love finish.

    Congrats Len! I see what you mean about it looking like a more traditional burst, except that it fades to purple. It is beautiful! I love my Tobacco Burst BN5. VERY classy. Welcome to the F Bass family. Gary

    You mean my former Warrior? I sold it. I honestly can make a good comparison between the two at this point:

    Action: Even. Both allow you to have an extremely straight neck with little buzz. The only thing is that it took several trips back to the Warrior factory before the frets were right.

    Playability: Advantage F. While the narrow string spacing at first seemed like a benefit, I found it sometimes uncomfortable. I quickly adjusted to the F spacing, and the extra .5" neck is no big deal. The F's neck profile is more comfortable to me, and overall, the bass just hangs better.

    Build quality: Advantage F. No comparison.

    Sound: Advantage F. This will be totally personal preference, and a function of so many things, but for me, George's combo of ash/maple is IT sound-wise. My Warrior was very cool...ash body/wenge neck, lots of mid-growl and compressed. Totally different thing.

    That is a great looking bass! Wait till you get that thing under some colored stage lights...I have a tobacco burst, and in a red or orange light you can see all the "graining" in the dark stained portion around the edge of the bass. Pretty cool. Not to mention that plays and sounds like a dream. Congrats.

  17. Well, also, price difference! F-basses cost thousands of dollars, while Fender P's and J's ae much less expensive.
