the bass is a clifford roi. i've posted many times on here about them and my experiences with the builder and the instruments- i'm really, really lucky to own two of them. getting them is becoming more and more difficult, and was not easy in the first place. he's not a full time luthier, and has no interest in taking new orders, he's quite busy.
i've been under the impression that there is literally nothing like these basses anywhere else in the world. i'd love to be proven wrong, because id love to see more instruments that feel and sound like this, but i'm doubtful.
they have big crisp slap sounds without being scooped, crystal clear high end, really punchy and deep bridge pickup sounds that never get too nasally or thin.
what else can do that?
i have a feeling a lot of people will recommend fodera, so i'll have to say off the bat that i've tried and they're just not the same.
come on talkbass, proove me wrong.
