These Emperor Standards are beautiful, but I believe my technique and chops are not developed enough or clean enough to get the most out of one. I know a Fodera can be used for anything, but they have unreal clarity and a sweet high end that is ideal for solos or bass melodies. I know I would get better use out of a bass with a more meat and potatoes tone.
