I'm considering selling my Fodera. It just doesn't get played enough anymore, and it's too beautiful and sounds too good to sit around. This one's definitely more than the sum of it's parts - and i've played quite a few. Flame maple top Alder body Birdseye fb Bolt-on maple neck aero dual coils pope preamp black hardware Serial # E51516B The sound is very warm and textured, and can do both the P thing and J thing very well IMHO.
