F Bass BN5 Series 5 String Bass Ash - Chestnut Flame - Maple Neck

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Serial Number: 751113

Weight: 9.7 lbs

DOM: 2013

Condition: Very Good

Conditional Notes: This bass is in very good condition. The previous owner took great care of it and it shows little signs of playwear. Fret wear is minimal. Over $7k new.

-Has passed our 25-point certification for function and playability

-Most significant 3/8" mark to left body edge which has dinged the wood(see photo)

-Small ding to top at knob(see photo)

-Hanger stain to right headstock side(see photo)

-15 to 20 micro dings to back

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.
