I purchased Jamadav's Fodera Yin-Yang 4 last week. Dave was a pleasure to do business with and this bass is simply incredible! I have been through who knows how many basses, and I have indeed had some real winners. There was however always something here or there that I wished I could change. So far with with bass, everything is perfect. The craftsmanship on the Yin-Yang model is just unreal. It really looks like the bass is painted. No lines, no gaps whatsoever. Amazing. The neck felt instantly perfect in my hands as well. I was a bit timid about the alder body and 2 band eq. I have always been a ash fellow with a 3 band eq but I must say this bass sounds exactly like I wanted it to. It works perfectly for any application I use: fingerstyle, slap, douple thump, hamonics and tapping. Yep, it cost a bundle and there is no way I could have afforded a new one (THANKS DAVE!). Absolutely incredible bass!
