Hi there, I'm looking at selling my brand new from the USA, never left the house, mint condition 2017 F Bass BN5. It's a boutique level, handmade bass, built by a team of 5 people. F Basses are released in small batches or usually to order only and are world class pro-level tools and works of art. F Bass originator, George Furlanetto, always sit in the top 10 bass makers worldwide.

In terms of specs it has a one piece solid ash body, finished in a beautiful gloss brown-burst 'fade' finish, a solid three piece maple neck with some flaming, and capped with a super slick maple fingerboard. The pickups are handmade and wound by F Bass, and are secured under wooden ash covers taken directly from the body route itself, this feature also extends to the control plate at the back of the bass. The ash body is also hand finished in a 'grain filler' which highlights the grain markings and makes the bass really pop. The eq is an F bass exclusive, and features a boost only, mid bass and treble, as well as traditional jazz bass vol/vol/tone controls. The eq also has a hum cancelling/humbucker mode, and a passive mode which operates in conjunction with the vol/vol/tone controls.

The scale of the bass 34.5, which allows the b string to be tight and responsive and also creates a greater sense of balance due to the longer horn, making first position more comfortable to reach.

So why you ask am I selling? Too many tone options, and I really just need a dependable passive bass. Plus I hardly need to use the B string, so a fiver is probably wasted on me. So I figure, it needs to go to a good home and it needs to be played.

These basses usually retail near the 4k USA mark, one is sitting at Bass Centre in Melbourne at just under 6000 Aus, so whoever snaps this up is definitely getting a good deal here, especially considering it's better than store mint.

It comes with a deluxe gig bag and all the case candy.

In terms of trades, if you have a custom shop or vintage fender to offer, let me know.
