I would like to hear opinions about the new Fodera Standard line basses? I had always wanted a Fodera; however the military dont pay me enough for me to buy a custom made Fodera. (They should since I almost lost my life 3 times in Iraq). Anyway I am glad they came out with this line of Brooklyn made Foderas. I was able to acquire a Fodera Emperor Standard 5. I love the sound and the feel, awesome bass. Now I know why people always comment greatly about this basses. There is not that many comments about the Standard line but one comment took me for surprise, when they were compare to a $3000 bass, for example the Roscoe bass. Dont get me wrong the Roscoes are really nice basses, but it shouldnt be compared to a Fodera. Now that I am finally a Fodera Owner I agree that there is no comparison to any other basses.
