I've always loved the look of these basses just about as much as I've hated the price I saw Vic last night play Harrah's in St. Louis and he was, as usual, jaw dropping. I'm under no illusion here that I play anywhere near his league but I'm looking for anyone who's played one of these or similar Fodera's to give me their take on the overall sound. I play in a pop rock band (Sheryl Crow, Three Doors Down, etc.) and there's just no point buying a bass, and for this much money that wouldn't work for playing this style of music. Naturally, Vic wasn't covering any of our tunes last night so it's a bit difficult to judge... They did however do a arrangement of Led Zep's Kashmir... I'd be selling one of my two vintage p basses to help pay for it so obviously I need to proceed cautiously. Strangely enough my local Guitar Center doesn't have one in right now! Not gonna find one hanging around locally but I have found a used one. Any input on this topic is appreciated. Thanks!
