Furlanetto F Bass 6 String Sunburst, 1989

Instrument Categories: , , ,

The Furlanetto F Bass 6 String is built in Hamilton, Ontario, where George Furlanetto has been building and playing for over four decades. A bass player himself, Furlanetto builds some of the best custom and semi-custom basses available.

This Furlanetto F Bass 6 String dating to 1989 and built using an Ash body is paired with a one-piece Maple neck and Macassar Ebony fingerboard. The bass is wrapped in a very nicely executed Nitrocellulose Lacquer sunburst finish. Hardware is straightforward for a six string bass – there are six Gotoh tuners with mini bodies at the head and a massive, fully adjustable six saddle bridge. Electronics start from a pair of split-coil pairs – split in the way a P-Bass pickup is – in wooden covers that get the body’s sunburst tinting. An active 4-band blendable EQ circuit is run from a single standard 9v battery.

This is a very well built bass. It plays well, and sounds great with an enormous range. It has been used as intended, so there are some scuffs, dents and minor chips to the finish. Fret wear is light.

A gig bag is included.
