Fodera Anthony Jackson Signature Set
I've been playing for forty years, and i've never once considered changing my extremely light 6-string gauges to a thicker set, until recently.
I spent an afternoon last week with ancient friends Joey and Vinnie (and their great new partner, Jason) at the Fodera factory.. as a "try it and see" experiment, Joey installed a set of Anthony Jackson's signature exposed-cores on my '94 AJ 36", in Anthony's gauges, and the difference was.. instantaneous.
Touch, fundamental pitches, overtones, all profoundly enhanced... volume and depth like a church organ... tighter, more focused action across all octaves.. a real revelation.
The exposed cores require a different setup all around, but the sound is unlike anything I've heard from a string.
For mighty 6s, these are really both the crossroads and the last exit.
