    Howzit goin'?
    Does anybody have experience with the Fodera Vic Wooten bass? With the Mike Pope preamp, and the EMG P/J pups? Tone? Playability?
    Saved my pennies for awhile, and ordered one from BassCentral.
    I have a Lakland 5, and miss that fretted 4 action...
    Thanks...this place looks cool.
  2. I had one for a week but with a chestnut instead of maple top. Very, very nice bass; fine preamp with nice frequency selection and very quiet, superb tone.

    The only negative thing I can say is that it was relatively heavy. Not awful but noticeable.

    I opted for a Sadowsky instead. I preferred the Sadowsky tone to the Fodera Whooten's tone. Not better or worse just better ear candy for me.

    I like the Sadowsky's alot, too. The J-style in Cherryburst Quilt was my 2nd choice. I think both Vinnie and Roger are two of the best in the biz.
