    Time to let this spectacular 2009 F-Bass BN5 go to a new home as it's just not my thing and it's far too nice to be neglected :)

    Here are the specs:
    Specs:
    -34.5" Scale - Standard F-Bass BN Series
    -19mm String Spacing with 'B' Bridge
    -10.6 lbs
    -Incredible and unique Figured Maple Top (a $1700 upgrade if ordered new, and currently unavailable from FBass)
    -Maple body binding ($400 upgrade)
    -3 piece Maple Neck
    -Figured Ash body
    -Asian Ebony Fretboard
    -Volume / Blend Wiring Option
    -Fbass Gig Bag

    List price would be about $6500 if new.

    The bass is in near-mint condition. There is one small surface scratch in the clear coat (that doesn't reach the paint or the wood) on the treble side bout that is impossible to photograph. (I tried, but trust me-it's visible upon close inspection under bright light). Other than that, the bass looks like it's brand new.

    Price is $3,200, including shipping to CONUS. No trades of any kind, thanks.

    International sales are fine, but you would also be responsible for any import duties, fees or VAT charged by your country. You must also agree to assume any risk related to the enforcement of the CITES treaty by your country.

    Please feel free to ask me any questions that you might have..and thanks for looking!

    Bump for my former F. This is a real gem!
    Steve is also fantastic to deal with.
    I'm actually wavering about getting it back! Great pictures!

    What brand of strings are those? Looks like a whole set of taper core.

    Gorgeous bass!!

    Those are the strings that were on the base when I bought it from its previous owner. My understanding is that they are, indeed, FBass strings.
