Last Friday, 3/14/03, I started a thread that was asking the differences between Beneventes and Foderas. My point being that according to the article in Bass Player Magazine and the Benevente web site, the Benevente seemed to be very similar to one of the Fodera models. They have a similar body style and (I think) some of the same electronics. I was wondering if the Benevente was significantly different to justify its existence. I've played Foderas but not Beneventes. No one has responded to the thread. Does anyone know anything about the Beneventes? I was hoping to hear that there is a significant difference as variety tends to lead to progress and innovation. Any responces???
