    Question 2019 Ball Family Reserve Basses

    Hello Forum Members!

    I am very interested in ordering a BFR bass this year and was just wondering if anyone knows if a 5 string bass will be offered in 2019, since the last two BFR basses were 4 and 6 stringers.

    Also, when does EBMM announce these instruments? Is it on a set date, or does it just happen periodically every so many months apart?

    Thanks for your help!

    I *believe* that it is essentially every other month now. That doesn’t necessarily mean the firstof the month, either. I can’t offer any help on the 5-string question.

    Thanks Brother!

    If they do come out with a BFR 5 this year the plan is to place my order the day the announcement comes out!

    Wonder why they didn't use the new lite weight tuners. Looks to have the old style bridge, like that!

    You are more of a 5 string guy, so will go with that.

    I think both are great and would love to get either.

    But want to get an SR 5 H Special and one of the new short scales so neither is on the radar for me.
