The F bass design evolved over 30 years of creating, repairing and studying other instruments, and it has been my desire to learn from and improve upon those designs. This process has led to a terrific combination of fat, natural sound, superb feel, exciting new look, and, because I play them too, comfortable balance and light weight. I hope refinements such as these create a niche away from instruments that sound and feel "high-tech". At F bass, quality and craftsmanship are the standards by which we live. Even though we build for today's player, I want our instruments to play and feel like great vintage basses.
