As I'm preparing to move house early next year, I'm looking to thin my herd and only keep the bare minimum basses Along with my several other sale posts, here's one that I'm probably the most reluctant to post.
For sale is my remarkably beautiful F Bass VF5 Custom - handcrafted in Canada by the legendary luthier George Furlanetto. All electronics and hardwares are original and in 100% working order. This is as good as a jazz bass can get, it's just perfect in every way. See below for photos and specifications (photos don't do justice - it really looks way better in person, such a unique vibrant blue refinish!)
Quoting the VF series explanation from F Bass website:
"Our VF series captures the vibe and accurate tone reproduction of classic '60s and '70s basses, but features modern advantages including easy access to the higher frets, an onboard F Bass preamp, a solid low B string, a modern neck carve, and we offer nearly any option under the sun for true customization. The body shape is similar to that of Fender's Jazz bass so those Fender-exclusive-players will feel right at home. They hang and are carved similarly, however, the edges are rounded a touch more for comfort and the treble horn is curved outwards for those who prefer playing in the seated position.
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 also 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.
As with all of our other models, our VFs are handcrafted right here in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada."
