    Okay:

    SO. This is the most amazing 4-string bass ever, of course =0) But there are a few things working against it:

    1. I play almost exclusively 6 string these days
    2. It's got *some* emotional attachment to a relationship that is no more.
    3. It's so nice and just stays at home, alone, on the wall 99% of the time. It had a great time playing with others at the GTG tho =0)

    ARGH - I don't know whether I should sell it or keep it, but I realize if I keep it it wouldn't be "to get played". I didn't even use it in the studio, on the album we're recording.

    This feeler is to gauge interest and also is to find out what the market will bear for the bass. I mean, if selling should I ask $5k? More, less? list on these is up to some $8300 or whatever but obviously I don't want to gouge.

    It is a rare piece and it does have Vic's autograph on it...

    *sigh*

    Feel free to discuss, maybe this will turn into a full FS post and maybe not.
     
  2. Hey!

    Is with 2 band EQ or 3 band EQ?

    I'm an idiot - off the top of my head I *think* it's a 2-band but I truly cannot remember!
     
  4. My thought is, if you have that much jack tied up in an instrument that isn't getting played, get rid of it.

    If it's the one that you brought to the GTG at Jong's, I'm pretty sure it's a two-band.

    Now... should we PM Brian about this and really drive him nuts? ;)
     
  6. Oh my...... that's a beauty! Somebody snatch it up!

    I saw it! It looked pretty.
     
  9. Somebody please buy this. Buy this now. This bass is simply gorgeous. It plays like melted butter, and will turn even the newest bass player into a bass god. Vic Wooten's signature gives it that extra bit of mojo and brings it all the way home.

    Oh, it also cures blindness and impotence.

    FYI,

    for stuff like fodera's, i highly recommend going consignment. LOTS of overseas buyers love this kind of US made high end stuff.

    thanks for the responses guys - it'd be hard to let go, but I'm leaning that way.

    Here are a few pics I have - notice in the ebony, just after the end of the fretboard, there's a discolored "sliver-shaped" spot (lighter than the black) on the body - that's just natural and has been there as long as I've had the bass, isn't a damaged spot.

    Yeah, I'd have The Groove Shoppe in NY sell it, bro. Those guys have ties to Fodera and will make sure it gets to a good home at the right price for both buyer and seller.
