    This is a late 80’s Foundation 5 with the Super Ferrites. You don’t seem many fivers with the SF’s and they sound great and the bass plays like butter. The finish isn’t in great shape, there’s a decent amount of wear throughout and some small scratches and marks.
    Weight is about 8.8 on my bathroom scale and string spacing is pretty tight. I would guess no wider than 17mm.

    Comes with the original hard shell case in kind of rough shape, but still does the job.
    No trades on this guy.

    Here’s a clip of me playing the bass:

    String spacing at the bridge? Weight?

    Curious how this compares to the one I just grabbed from you. Seems everyone prefers the SFs

    I’m glad you asked! I made this video with these two basses. The one I sold you and the one I’m selling.

    Awesome. Seems like the SFs are much more Jazzish and the VFLs almost have a Tbird flavor to them. Dig both!

    You are a very precise player. That is a difficult song to play.You make that bass sound good!
