Fodera NYC Empire, Spector Coda Deluxe, or Dingwall Super J
Hello, im in the market for a boutique J, and what I have available to me right now is a 2010 Fodera NYC empire, a spector coda deluxe, and a Dingwall Super J. They are all relatively the same price, I was considering the NYC empire, however, when the dealer sent me photos, the truss rod cavity had some flaws, like there were some wood chips or something that were sprayed over making it look rough. Should this be normal for a Fodera NYC Empire? The dealer sent photos to Fodera, and they said it could be polishing compound, but I can't tell in the pictures. I will attach photos of the cavity later.
If anyone has any opinions on any of these 3 basses, any insight would be helpful to make my decision!
