    I managed to get a pic of my Fodera in progress. A couple things I noticed were that the original invoice stated gold hardware and macassar ebony pickup covers. I'm wondering if this is someone elses or if it's actually mine and they just made some changes. The maple covers and black hardware probably look better with this particular spalted top so I'm not really complaining in the end. I'll find out soon enough, I hope! ;)

    It might be too gold given the top but I'm
    considering it.

    Edit: spelling corrections. Original post written on a pda...

    its possible they are just test fitting whatever hardware they had laying around at the time. if you paid for gold you should get it right?

    Looks really really cool man. I wish I were expecting a new Fodera. New pics like that are exciting. :)

    BTW: I would probably label that bass pretty much done and not "in construction." ;) When are you taking delivery?
     
  9. Nice Bass!

    I think it looks nice as it is but I have always liked gold hardware. Black matched the Ebony dots.
    I also would like the to get a Imperial 5 but with Olive top like Bona's bass :bassist:

    [1] Wow !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    [2] See [1] :hyper:

    My personal preferences would be to go with the gold hardware for your colour scheme; but I guess anything would look good on a bass of this calibre!

    Kind regards,

    At this point, your guess is as good as mine. I haven't heard anything about delivery dates since the 2nd week of December or so. I certainly won't mind if it shows up this week, though.

    Well I am pretty sure they do all shipping on Friday's. Maybe not but perhaps it will at least go out? It looks done to me anyway...

    I suppose I'll give a call on Monday and see what's going on. They'd just better make sure to put the other knob on the double first ;)

    Black hardware is the perfect marriage IMO!

    Alright... here a quotation of my noises I produced when seeing the pic.

    'oooooooooh................................................................................................................................................. Oh my Lord.... how beautifull'.




    Please choose black... it's just too beautifull to express. :cool:
