That's an incredible looking bass!!

 

So....did ya need a cigarette after your first glance? I think I would've, and still would've respected it in the morning.

 

Amost makes me want to part with some serious money.

 

Your fault. I can't look anymore.

 

(peek...)

 

Damn it, Beavis.....

 

Most excellent!

Bassplayers aren't paid to play fast, they're paid to listen fast.

Since I lived in Hamilton for many years, I made several visits to the Furlanetto shop down off of Burlington street.

 

This guy is a classy act. He had some display models on show, and let me try every one I wanted to. He showed me the back of the shop, where they do the work, explained how they make the pickup covers.....wow, great experience.

 

Every bass I played was set up perfectly,not a single fret rattle ( and i looked for them...). The singer for the band I was in at the time knew him personally, so I guess the treatment was a little biased...but still, for a shop that busy to take time for little 'ole me made me feel really good about the whole thing.

 

Now if only I had a few G's layin around to buy one......( I will one day.)

Check out my work in progress.

Wow, man, wow. That's a gorgeous instrument. I got to play a couple of F basses at the NYC Guitar & Bass Boutique back in December, and was really impressed with the quality of the construction and the sound. The preamp is terrific, and the active and passive settings both sound awesome.

 

Stunning bass. Enjoy it.

Dude, you have owned some of the nicest, sweetest basses I've ever seen. Nice NAMM 2003 photos too!

That's a beautiful instrument, and unlike some other pretty basses, all reports are that F basses play as well as they look. I've been sorely tempted several times to grab one.

 

Good luck with it, many years of enjoyment to you!

ok- a short clip oat the bass sounds like-

mzeger , that maple shows there because thats really the neck- it is set deep into the body- i guess that part couldve gotten a burl veneer, but i trust George and if it were to change anything in the sound, i would vote against it- but, yeah, i had the same thought-

heres the clip:

Uuum, dude you might want to edit that...

Seriously though... that Bass is NIIICE... I'd lay it too if I could afford it!

I really like those pickup covers... very nice touch. And the contrast at the neck joint is cool too.

I'm not really sure how to tell the difference between a good bass and a good player... I've heard good players make a mediocre bass sound great, and I've heard some mediocre players make quality instruments sound like, well, crap... but that clip of your new bass sounds pretty damn good to me... whether its the bass, or the player, or both (as Sweet Willie suggested.)

Again, I have to say... NIIIICE.

Such a good-lookin' bass -- especially w/ those matching p'up covers and control knobs -- that I had to bump this back to the top with a longing sigh... ;)

 

Now that you've had it a little while longer, Adrian, have any more specifics to tell us about how it sounds and plays?

 

Peace.
