Finally got my Fodera

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by hiphopbassist, Jun 11, 2002.


  1. been wanting this bass for a minute. finally got it from beaver and company at bass central. these guys are def chill. if you need it, and they got it, you owe it to yourself to give them a shot. you won't be disappointed.

    this bass plays great, balances great, and the workmanship is flawless. for me, it doesn't get any better than this. expensive? oh yeah, but i felt it was worth it. can get all kinds of cool tones out of this instrument. never held onto any bass i ever had, but this one? heh heh, imma have it for the rest of my life. i'm now officially cured of g.a.s. well, it's def in remission anyway:D

    If that's the bass I'm thinking of, I played it when I was in their shop last fall. If it's different, then oh well...

    Anyway, the one I played was a true player! A beauty! Fantastic!

    Congrats on your new acquisition:D

    I was tempted recently to unload my Thumb B/O AND Pedulla Pentabuzz to get a used Fodera 4 like that one.

    Oh, the humanity!!!

    I got to fool around with one like that when I was in Dallas, several months ago. That bass was phenominal, to say the least. I swear it even made me sound good. I'm sure yours is just as incredible. Good luck with it and have fun.:D
     
  13. thanks everybody for the compliments and ball busting. it's def appreciated.;). y'all rock!!!!

    Well, as the only other TBer that's played that bass, I believe I can comment here...

    IT ROCKS!!!

    (As do all Foderas...er...Foderii....uh....yeah...whatever :D)

    Glad you dig it HHB, and glad we stumbled to the solution for your quandry with the neck adjustment! :eek: ;)

    (Rather be lucky than good, but I'm working on being BOTH)
     
  15. If it's anything like the Monarch 4 that was in BC when I was there a few months ago, it's amazing. I was sorta scared to pick that one up because 1) I might break it, and I couldn't afford it, or 2) I might like it WAY too much, and I couldn't afford it. :) I just barely avoided #2 by just holding the bass for a few minutes and not actually plugging it in, but it was a close call...

    Anyway, congratulations!

    Hey Gard, is that the one I played last summer? If it is, it's the only bass I thought MIGHT sound better than my Lakland. That thing rules.

    Congrats hiphop!
     
  17. Congrads. on your new Bass. I agree that the guys at Bass Central are top notch.


    Why put off for tomorrow what you can do today BECAUSE, If you like it, you can do it again tomorrow

    Mike & Munji...nope, that's a brand new bass, just came in the shop 3 weeks or so ago. But, they're all pretty consistent: FREAKIN' AMAZIN' :D

    Thankfully, they only have 4 strings, and I haven't played a Fodera 5 that had "it" for me yet (although they're all killer basses!).
