    Bass was autographed on the headstock by famous bass players Wooten, Wellington and a few others.

    Bass is warm sounding but has an awesome slap sound! You can get a nice 70's jazz bass sound or a really articulate/ percussive fingertone!

    Very interested in Mike Lull 5's, Alleva Coppolo 5's, Fbass 5's, Possibly another Fodera, MTD, or a Sadowsky, but only 5'ers.

    Unreal.

    I can’t imagine how much that would cost to build now. What a great deal.

    I still remember the Roscoe trade deal we did back in 2009. I got an SKB 3006 from you. Yeah, those were my first days of trying to play 6 strings.

    That was a great bass. I gave up on 6ers for 5ers and haven’t looked back!
