FBass BN5 Transwhite, MOP Blocks, Binding – This is the SHIZZ! :D


This is a BRAND NEW, September 2011 F Bass BN5 in a Trans-White gloss with black enhanced grain finish.  34.5″ scale (gives you a great B-string while still being comfortable to play), ebony fingerboard with MOTHER OF PEARL BLOCKS, Black binding on the body and headstock, and KILLER sounds!  Comes with an AWESOME FBass Contego Gig Case!

Did I mention Blocks?  And BINDING?!?!?!  Shnikes!  :D

This bass produces a thick rich sound reminiscent of a good vintage tone with a sweet rather than harsh high end; however, retaining the ability to cut through a mix. The addition of the very natural sounding preamp allows for variability towards more modern sounds. The two separate volumes allow you to blend the two pickups in any amount of each, not limiting you to the fixed levels of a blend control. The passive tone control functions whether in passive or active mode enabling it to modify a different set of frequencies than the ones affected by the active tone controls. These fretted basses are well balanced standing or sitting and are a joy to play.

$5,999
