     As many of you already know, BunnyBass has long been a fan of George Furlanetto and his F basses. This particular BN5 is no exception to the rule that the F Bass BN5 is one the most versatile basses for any working musician in any musical situation. The entire bass feels well balanced with a smooth as silk neck. The tone of the instrument is excellent and offers the bassist a wide variety of sounds using all of the available options placed at the hands of the player. Couple all of that with great looking finish work and you have the whole package wrapped up and ready to realize it's full potential as an expressive musical instrument. George F has consistently strived to make a bass that is first and foremost just that same real musical tool and he has succeeded in doing so.

This instrument is documented in the BunnyBass Musical Instrument Archive.
