FBass BN5 Transparent White
This has to be one of the most beautiful FBasses I’ve seen – but in an elegant, subtle sort of way. The ash grain of the BN5 is just visible under the transparent white finish. NOW WITH VIDEO!
Does anyone build a better “modern” bass than George Furlanetto? The BN5 is a versatile instrument perfect for fingerstyle or slap playing. Every element of this bass is crafted to deliver pure, usable, musical tone.
The pickups and active preamp are custom made by F Bass to ensure that it is not possible to get a bad tone out of this instrument. You know how with most active basses if you rotate the knobs to the extreme you get a completely unusable sound? Well, that just doesn’t happen with F Bass. The knobs are dialed in to be musically enhancing and natural sounding. Also, with the pull of a knob you can go from active to passive, which opens up a huge array of great passive tones.
The neck conforms perfectly to your hand, and the 34.5″ scale allows for a very ergonomic and comfortable playing position. Also, the body shape of the BN5 allows for perfect balance – no neck dive here!
The retail price of this bass is $4,425, but it is available here for the LOWEST PRICE ALLOWED – ONLY $3,299! Love this bass but have another instrument you need to sell first? Drop me a line, and let’s see if we can work something out.
