    This particular F-Bass made it back to me recently from a local player.
    It's THE best F-Bass I've ever saw in person (or anywhere) to date.

    -34.5" Scale - Standard F-Bass BN Series
    -19mm String Spacing with 'B' Bridge
    -10.58 lbs on my Rapala Fish Scale
    -Incredible Quilt Maple Top with Maple body binding (big upgrade)
    -3 piece Maple Neck
    -Ash body
    -Asian Ebony Fretboard
    -Volume / Blend Wiring Option
    Comes with Fbass Gig Bag

    It's in mint condition with no dings or dents to mention.

    This bass would cost $7200 US if ordered new today.

    Selling price is $4000 US with shipping included to the Lower 48 United States and Canada. Europe and Hong Kong shipped price is $4500 US.

    As for trades, will consider 4 or 5 string basses in trades.
    Bolt-On or double cut basses preferred! Not interested in Single Cuts.
    Brands of interest: Alleva Copolo, Fodera, Wal, Kenneth Lawrence, Carl Thompson, Sadowsky etc

    Start a conversation with me to discuss further details.
    I will ship anywhere.

    This is a game ending F-Bass BN5!

    Really spectacular. Love how it looks like the wood for the pickup covers and back plate is cut from the respective pieces so that the grain matches. Beautiful craftsmanship.
