    Does anyone here have any personal experience with a Fodera Emperor II 6-String? I've talked to them and the guys at BassCentral. I'm finally in a position to afford one, I realize there's an 11 - 13 month wait
    I'm hoping its worth it. Currently playing a Lakland 55-94, previously had a Modulus Q5. The single cut-away design looks great but I'm more concerned about the tonal quality it adds, if any.
    So I'd like to hear from anyone who owns or has played this particular model Fodera. I'm ordering a mahogany body, with bookmatched figured (spalted, flamed, and burled) chestnut top w/ebony accent laminate; bookmatched figured walnut back w/ebony accent laminate. Electronics are the Fodera/Pope preamp with Duncan dual-coils pickups.

    Thanks for any info. . . .
