Inspired by Fodera Club Part XIII...
Photo's not showing up for me.
tightbidness, reposting TalkBass attachments in img tags does not work. You'll have to either rehost the photos somewhere else, or download them and upload them as attachments in these posts.
I thought I was going insane, wondering why I couldn't see those.
Thanks Bryan. Updated...
Is Career Girl ash/rosewood? What year is that bass from?
Yes, ash/rosewood, '73 Jazz body and '75 Precision neck according to Brave New Bass.
That's funny, I've just recently decided that's my favorite wood combo and have a Fodera and Callowhill Junk on order that use those woods. I guess AJ and I have similar tastes.
Sweet! Is that the bass he used on the O' Jays "For the Love of Money"?
Hi everyone. I recently acquired AJ's Ken Smith bass from an Ebay sale. It's the first Smith bass he commissioned, and #3 of all his contrabasses.
that smith rules
What has happened to it? It looks like somebody has sawed off a piece of the body.
No one has given me a clear story about the damage, and I don't care to speculate.
I will say that it's not a clean break. Look at this other photo. The back wood got cut off a little more than the front.
What's important is that this instrument set the standard for 6stringers to follow - 34" scale, 26 frets, 2" wide at the nut, 3.5" at the 26th fret. The spacing is kind of narrow, but by all accounts *much* better than the Carl Thompson.
According to Chris Jisi's article in Bass Player, Sept 2005, the "Money" bass was a 73 Precision with Rotosounds.
Thanks for sharing a piece of history. Interesting that the bass is attributed to "Smith~Fodera."
What is the circular piece of wood next to the neck pickup?
Does anyone have footage of him "Townsend-ing" that six string!?
Can learning a Bach Cello Suite really piss someone off that much!?
