If anyone is looking for an amazing Fodera, I had a chance to play a Vic Wooten at Bass Exchange in LA. This thing was amazing. The neck was incredible, as was the sound. Had it not been for the Spalted top and pale moon ebony board, I would own this guitar. The look is just too much for me (I'm a "less is more" type). This is just an fyi for anyone looking for this type of bass. By the way, I am in no way associated with Fodera or Bass Exchange.
