    When i saw this bass for this price i freaked, cause it had everything on it i wanted.....(buckeye, wenge, mahog, 24 fret especially).

    I have a Korean made Tobias right now (Toby PRO-5b), so it will be nice owning one actually made by the man himself.....

    I just got back from my trip, who was it I talked to about meeting mike to fix it? Was it Doug? Anyways, ill call tomorrow.

    Just to let everyone know, it arrived with only the bridge pickup working, so i dont know what it sounds like yet, but it sure plays angellically. Now i just gotta get that pickup working. Ill take pictures soon, probably tomorrow. It definitely looks much better in person!!

    Having seen this bass on my short visit to Bass Central the other day, I must say it looks fantastic in person. However being the humble lefty that I'am, I couldn't play it. (Damn You All)!

    Good Luck with it, I doubt you'll need it

    I just got centralized yet again this past week, and for the first time in person!

    I was just there to pick up my latest Warwick and hang out with Gard.

    But walking in that place is a big mistake sometimes.

    Having Gard hand you a Fodera and a Dingwall to play compounds this mistake.

    Having a girlfriend who understands your affliction and immediately after walking out, offers to front the dough to get the Fodera you've been drooling over - THAT's INSANITY. I'm going to have a heart attack now.
