Now that is nice! When are you receiving it?
You spent all that money on a Fodera and all they gave you was one pickup? They should have put ten or twelve on there for that price
Congrats What's the scale length?
that bass is hot.
Look at all the knobs/swtiches... surly that constitutes the price
True. I hear they're carved from the collected baby teeth of James Jamerson himself.
DUDE! Whatcha hit Lotto or something lately! I can't keep up with you man!
BEAUTIFUL piece! Congrats & good luck!
The fodera singlecut shape always looked a little awkward to me but I bet it's a superb instrument. Lovein' the birdseye top...Oh an by the way is that a real butterfly in the headstock?
That's interesting....that has been up on the site for awhile. How did you come across it?
AMAZING bass...yum..lots of knobs..lol
cause it was made specifically for me about a year ago... only recently, did i run across the pictures on the site.
B-man jones!!!! wassup? daaaag, long time no see. fosexa indeed...
as for specs, walnut body about 3" thick, 100A birdseye maple top, chestnut heel block, kingwood board, maple lines, 35" scale, Aero bridge pickup.
FYI, Capt Scarlet owns an a killer Fodera fretless, and after playing his, i knew i had to have one myself. the first place i turned was the Groove Shoppe, where Dave was there every step of the way thru the whole process of building the bass. he literally showed me nearly half of the entire Groove Shoppe inventory, helping me get an idea of what to expect.
it wasnt until he brought his own super freakie cool Beez-Elite 5 that i had a better idea, cause his bass is simply astounding! besides, the amazingly deep, woody, fat sound, which my bass is modeled after, also loved the super figured walnut top. unfortunately, nothing really caught my eye, tho many of pieces were quite impressive. i nearly gave up, and started thinking maybe i should just get the ol' quilt maple top. but Dave in a fit of inspiration goes to the ol' Fodera wood vault and pulls out this incredible piece of 5A birdseye maple. i was like "Holy !!!"
tonally, its literally the fretless sound i've had in my head for a long time. oddly enough, i use my bass mostly in passive mode, cause the natural tone of the bass just rules. dave's own bass is totally passive, and while the Pope preamp is quite cool, the original tone of the bass is juuuust too nice.
bottom line, thx to Dave and Joel, i've officially been pimped.
hehe, nope, no lottery. just happen to be showing off many many many years of slow but painstakingly amassed gear...
WOW! That is sweet, jokerjunky. Congrats!
Drools... I love it!
I think they truly look best with a lighter colored top and a darker board... Very nice my friend!
J, killer! Very hot...er...hawt (don't want Josh correcting me! )!!!
Why you gotta be all surly about it? Just jealous because you don't have one???
...s'ok, I'm a bit surly about it too!!!
I've never seen a five-string fretless till now. You've made my day. So far, at least.
That is the NICEST piece of birdseye I have EVER seen and I don't even like birdseye...
now THATS a real flipping bass
great axe man, rock that thing HAWT
