I love the sound of a J Bass. You can always tell a Jazz or a P Bass and a Musicman of course.I suppose a Ken Smith is easily recognizable as well. These instruments have been sort of the standard of the industry. Engineers like them too because they know what to do with them. But how about Foderas? They are crazy expensive and in spite of that I've been seeing more and more bassists playing them. I have never checked one out but I can imagine they are great playing instruments. But what is it that they do soundwise that justifies the expense? Or is it just that a lot of players these days have more money than they know what to do with? What are some recordings where you could immediately say "That's a Fodera"?
