    Ok, I really need the cash for my move now, so go ahead and make me some unreasonable offers. I might crack...

    I'm moving from the US and although Matt has offered to take care of the sale, I'd rather just sell it before I leave. At this price, it's a steal, and I'm losing quite a lot of money on it. If you were to order this bass, it would cost $2,700. I'm willing to sell for a fraction of that.

    I had this bass built for me by Matt at FBB. I received it last week, but due to a cash shortage I need to sell it. It's brand new, comes with a luxury padded gigbag. You can see it at www.fbbcustom.com -- go to Inventory, it's #1074. Here are the specs:

    - 5 piece figured cocobolo/white oak/mahogany body, matching cavity cover
    - 7 piece flame maple/purpleheart neck
    - Graphite reinforcement rods
    - Gloss lacquer finish (rare on FBBs)
    - Macassar ebony fingerboard, abalone inlays
    - 2 Bartolini soapbars
    - 2 Series/paralles switches (close to bridge in pics)
    - East U-Retro Deluxe preamp (with passive tone)
    - Neutrik locking jack
    - Black tuners
    - Black Hipshot 3-way adjustable bridge
    - Black Schaller straplocks

    This bass is extremely well built and versatile, but unfortunately it has to go. If you ordered this bass today, list price with all the options would be 2,765.

    This bass is BRAND NEW. Please email me with any questions.


  2. Your bass is beutiful and i can attest to FBB quality being an owner of one of Matt's works of art. Good luck with the sale, man. I wish i could relieve you of that bass.

    Thanks for the replies guys, I have had much interest in the bass but it's still available. Nick, thanks for the kind words.

    Don, the oak is the 2nd and 4th laminate: cocobolo/oak/mahog/oak/cocobolo.

    That # 74 looks just like my #68 with just 2 more strings!

    Hey Nick,

    you the one I saw playing at trans performance in 'hamp last year?
