    That's a great top! The only ones I've liked better were Adrian's (former) buckeye and the walnut fretless made for a TBer.

    What makes an F bass and F bass? They all like look jazz basses to me, besides the great looking tops and stuff, but I guess that all depends on where you are buying your jazz basses.

    Man, that bass is soooo sexy, Like a work of art, if I owned it, I would be afraid to play it.
  9. that's amazing. every time I see a F-bass they just get better looking. It will be mine, on yes, one day it will be mine! :D
  10. beautiful wood, first-rate hand construction of all parts, custom pickups, matched-grain pickup and control covers, high-tech preamp, the list goes on.

    take a look at www.fbass.com phenominal stuff. way out of my price range, though.
  11. Nope. This is quilted maple.

    Hows it going bro'?!!
  15. :eek: This Fbass is a piece of art.
    Really beautiful!!! This top is one of the best I've ever seen.
    spalted and quilted are really awesome together.
    I found my F really pretty, but this one is really prettier...
    Bravo Georges!
  16. It said on bunnybass that is was flamed spalted maple.

    But it does look more quilted now that I look at it.

    Very very nice... the only thing I dont like about it, though, is that the truss rod adjusting has to be done from the body-neck joint, so you have to remove the strings and theres a chance of hurting that nice top... well, ok, there are three more things I dont like about it: its not a 6-string, not a lefty and IT IS NOT MINE :bawl: :(
    But apart from that, it is very very nice :cool:
