    My new Fodera arrived today and I'm totally blown away - they nailed my tonal goals more than perfect - the Bass plays & sounds incredible, kills in the mix , so warm, punchy, round, looks so elegant & classy in person...

    Along this BIG thumps up for Jason (Just Thumpin') for all the great support through the waiting time :)


    Specs are :

    Viceroy body shape (the 4th bass ever made with this shape which is a mix of the Emperor and Monarch shape)

    Bolt-On

    Ash body (1 piece lightweight)

    Holly top (I wanted to have some simple but elegant/timeless looking top and I'm not into figured woods anymore - plus I LOVE white basses ;))

    25 year old Pao Ferro fretboard

    Mother of Pearl Block Inlays

    34' maple neck

    custom spacing at the nut - ( 1 26/32" at the nut while keeping the 19mm at the bridge)

    22 frets

    Extended B Headstock (I love the shape of the headstock)

    Chrome Hardware

    Passive - no preamp - only Vol./Tone and Blend chrome pots

    Seymour Duncan Vintage Singlecoils in 60ies spacing

    The simplicity of the holly top with the blocks is *killer.*
