    I just downloaded some progress pictures of a bass we ordered a few months back. For those who might care, here are some shots of the man himself in action:


    I thought some folks might like to check them out. Enjoy.

    Yes please, more. I've always wanted to tour Fodera and this is probably as close as I'll get. Please more action shots.

    Thank you very much, Joel. I could look at a 100 more. So quit playing and selling all those nice basses and take more pics. Better yet, set up a 24hour webcam at Fodera's shop :)

    I completely agree about seeing 100 more. I love going into any custom shop so much. I get such a kick out of watching someone work who is really a master of their craft.

    The Fodera shop never gets old for me. The first time I ever went there was back in 98 and I happned to bring my wife with me. We ended up spending 4 hours looking at woods and talking to the guys - I'm amazed she didn't divorce me. Although, that was also her first and last visit there - I think she had her fill!
