At last, today my uncle let me play his Fodera basses. He is the owner/designer of of the Edward Model... I got to tell you , what a great Instrument it is, Its passive but it sounds just amazing. The build quality is perfect, fretwork is perfect and even at 35" scale and 20mm string spacing, it is increadibly easy to play. I have very small hands and I could do anything or more than I can on a 34" scale bass. Action is very low and the tone.. you gotta hear that tone. Overall build quality is perfection. I also tried another of his basses, a Fodera Edward Model Semi-Hollow.. It is even lighter than my Cort Curbow 6 string, and its a 34" scale, even with that the B string is a Thunder. Action is low too, and the tone is amazing. Another is a 36" scale Fretless. I couldnt play that one.. It was just TOO big for me, but the quality is incredible. Even that the price tag is a little high, Fodera´s reputation stands for. Those were the best basses I have played so far and If I had the money I wouldnt doubt a bit of getting one. Btw, Today I tried a Modulus Fretless bass, If any of you wants to get one of those, try to get it UNLINED. Lines do produce some uneveness on so you will find some rattles sometimes when having very low action.
