    I contacted Fodera about the bass Ryan was performing live with the other day, and they replied back saying that they did make a bass for him and they are planning on bringing out a Ryan Martinie signature model.

    Breaking news: artist moves from five stringed wooden bass frequency-producing device to five stringed wooden bass frequency-producing device. :woot:

    I was at that show. It certainly caught me off guard seeing him play something other than a Warwick!

    This is pretty funny because I get the feeling that folks are surprised he would have company associated with Fusion and studio players build a macho Metal man, like him, a bass.;)

    One of the most influential metal bass players of a generation for his work in Mudvayne, has since moved on to a lot of jazz/rock fusion stuff in his new project Soften the Glare, though Mudvayne has reunited for some shows. Definitely worth checking out even if you're not a metalhead - the bass line in Mudvayne's "Dig" enjoyed a renaissance as a bit of a meme a few years back.

    It’s interesting that they’re going to make it a signature model as they currently don’t cater to that market at all, but good on them for trying to expand their customer base.

    What's interesting to me is that I originally found it weird when Warwick began to become associated with metal players. I had previously associated Warwick much more with fusion guys or with players such as T.M. Stevens and Jack Bruce. Given Ryan Martinie's style (his actual playing style, as opposed to his image or to the image of Mudvayne), it makes perfect sense to me that he would be interested in Fodera. Regardless, I don't totally understand brand loyalty on the part of the people not actually doing the playing ("Why is he playing that bass - I want him to play that one!"). I'm not saying that is how the OP is coming across, but I have seen the sentiment expressed in other places. I guess this sort of attachment to image (and, perhaps, wanting to associate with aspects of a given image) is part of human nature, but I still find it a bit odd that we can care so much about what basses other people play.

    Is this a good bass for metal?

    And he's not at all macho (which might be part of your point)! RM comes across as a genuinely nice, down-to-earth, no B.S. kind of guy.

    at some point when I am not at work I need to find all of Ryan's instagram posts about the Br Br Deng meme, including the one of him standing in front of a Burger King sign going "now you guys have got ME doing it!"

    As bass12 notes above, Ryan also has a reputation as just being a really sweet, funny guy.

    EDIT:

    Not the same post but lol

    Shirtless, tattooed, and muscular, men look macho onstage. That does not mean he is not down to earth and nice.

    Yes. I kind of like how far away from each other the image and the truth seem to be in the case of a guy like Ryan Martinie.

    I can already see the Ryan Martinie as a Standard Fodera model.
