    I'm a double bassist who dabbles in EB. In other words I suck at the slab.

    Anyway I was watching that Bela Fleck DVD, Live at the Quick.

    Victor uses this one bass a lot, he uses it in Amazing Grace, it's a 4-string fretted. The instrument is frikkin beautiful! Who made it, and how can I get one?

    I think it's one of the most understated, prettiest bass guitars I ever saw.

    This one:

    Or this one:


    They're both custom foderas and both very expensive. If I had the cash though............. :hyper: :hyper: :hyper:
  4. Fodera Ying Yang 4
    Fodera Monarch '83

    one is around 6000$
    second is around 5500$

    I think!! not sure....
    So you'll have to spend a lot to get that one!

    Good luck

    He uses this bass in the video. (I know the exact one you mean)

    It's tuned A-D-G-C and it's a Fodera

    VERY expensive instruments. Great quality though.

    Not pocket change, but certainly far far less than I spent on my main upright.

    I find a lot of Fodera basses ugly and unwieldy. I played one once, and it sounded awesome but the thing weighed about 40 tons. Maybe Victor's is lighter...
