This is a BRAND NEW, September 2011 F Bass BN5 in a natural gloss finish. 34.5″ scale (gives you a great B-string while still being comfortable to play), ASIAN EBONY fingerboard (for sexy good looks and maple-like sound) and KILLER sounds! Comes with an AWESOME FBass Contego Gig Case!
The GRAIN on this bass is so CRAZY it almost looks like it’s been tattoo’d on! :D And the pickup covers have flame maple on the edges – too cool!
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.
Have a bass you need to move first? Drop me a line – I might be able to help!
