Well, since rodneyat wouldn't trade his Fodera for my F Bass, it looks like the F Bass is going to be in my stable for a long time. Soooo ... I ran it over to Top Gear today to get it converted from VVT to VBT. It's going to take a couple weeks, but it'll be perfect for me when it comes back. I don't know what I'm going to play in the meantime. I'll find something around here.
