-The African Mahogany produces a warm & woody tone with a very strong midrange.
-The Ash tone block and Mac Ebony fingerboard tighten up the big bottom end and ensure the sweet top end is articulate and can bite when asked.
-The 3pc body, 5pc neck, and Hipshot Kickass bridge with Brass saddles give us a healthy amount of compression – which translates to a focused tone with amazing sustain.
-The Aguilar pickups are our favourite vintage repros made with Heavy Formvar wire and Alnico V magnets. The P pickup is big, round, and wooly with just the right amount of midrange honk to cut through a mix. The bridge pickup is clear and aggressive and responds well to playing dynamics.
-The F Bass preamp has been developed over three decades and is as transparent as they come. With all of the effort that goes into the design and sourcing of high-end materials, the last thing we want to do is colour with funky electronics….so you can boost the lows, mids, and highs without altering the inherent tonal characteristics.

Retail is $4950 USD, but please contact your favourite F Bass dealer for their current selling price. If your State/Country isn’t supported by a dealer, you may order directly from F Bass via email at orders@fbass.com or by phone at 905-522-1582.

This limited edition 40th anniversary PJ will be available to order until November 30th, 2018.
