    Hey everyone. This is my first thread so I thought I'd just say thanks to all since I've learned an awful lot lurking around this site. You guys even unknowingly helped me choose my latest bass and it's a keeper. Well since I've enjoyed looking at all of your new basses... on to the pictures.

    Thanks John. She does sound as good as she looks. Sort of an Anthony Jackson tone and does the Jaco thing very well.

    Nice bass. I almost had that bass but you beat me out by $100!

    I've heard good things about that particular bass. Enjoy and good luck.

    I actually just got back from the Fodera shop yesterday. I ordered a new bass as well. Picking the woods is always fun, but the following 8 - 12 months is torture!!

    BAss755 Thanks and I don't know, you're bass sure looks great. I like 'em both. Is it an alder body? Pope pre?

    Microbass I know, I'm not nearly as cool as mArK HoPpus!!! Heck my bass isn't even pink :p

    Joelc73, I didn't even know anyone else was making a cash offer. I'm sure glad I didn't try to lowball on the deal. I hope they'll build you an awesome bass. Judging from this one it will be amazing.

    You know I have been kind of tired lately.
     
  14. Welcome - and thanks for uncloaking!

    The Fodera is beautiful - congrats! I'm really diggin' my Monarch. I've become a fan of the set neck design.

    And no, my Sadowsky is not getting lonely at all! They really can live in harmony!

    :D

    NO WAY!!!! There's some rule here on Talkbass.com that no more than photos of one killer Fodera in a single post. I'll have to report you all to the Moderator.:)

    My GAS just wouldn't be able to handle it anyway.

    lol... Sorry I've been meaning to read the rules about posting. My gas meter was pegged when I first saw this bass.
