"My F Basses are a dream come true! My VF5 delivers the ultimate vintage sound that I've been searching for, and since I'm a big Jaco fan, I always wanted that old warm charm. I fall in love again and again with my fretless AC5 every time I pick it up, it's warmth and silkiness feels so natural as if it were built for my own two hands... the F Bass AC truly deserves to be named the "King of Fretless". Last but certainly not least is my BN5. This workhorse covers all of my needs whether it be live or in the studio... sound engineers ALWAYS comment on how easy the BN makes their job." - Edmond Gilmore
