    Unique Features
    A presentation grade solid Buckeye Burl top and dark Indian Rosewood fingerboard announce that this bass is here and is to be taken very seriously. Its all Alder body (wings and Tone Block) make you think pure "vintage" tone, but this instrument's Fodera / Duncan Dual Coil pickups were routed with 70's spacing which adds a little more brightness and cut to the overall sonic landscape.

    A joy to play, the entire bass resonates freely and loudly enough that you could play it in a quiet room and enjoy it acoustically. Oh, and the B-string is thunderous...

    Bass is in Perfect "AS NEW" Condition and ships in it's original case with all the candy. This one still smells new.

    It plays better than it looks to, this is the most versatile out of the three Fodera's i'm selling. The AJ has my favourite all round tone but this bass can do it all, amazing slap tone.
