I went to Bass Central yesterday, and will probably go back before my vacation is over. I thought I would share some thoughts. I had been wanting to try out some basses that we just don't get to see in Cincy. I only played a few 4 strings. I'm a 4 string guy. Sadowsy Metro - Beautiful bass with the sunburst and mint green guard. Not impressed with the bass at all. You would have to give me two of them to get my T-Bass from me, and then it would be a fist fight. I don't get the hype about these things. Tone was blah, playability was below average at best. Neck felt good, construction was good, just sounded plain (sounded weak compared to my T-Bass). Mike Lull - Holy cow! I don't know how anybody could play the Sadowsky and the Lull and not take the Lull. I believe it was a V4. Swamp Ash with Birdseye fretboard. This thing was incredible. Action was great, tone was fat, construction was top notch. The only thing that would take some getting used to would be the neck. It is thicker and fatter than a standard jazz. Not bad, just different. Wicked bass. Used Fodera VW Signature - OK, I have always said that no bass is worth that much money. With that said, I am figuring out where I can get $4500. I get the Fodera thing now. This bass was the nicest bass I have ever played - Hands Down! The feel was unreal, and It could get any tone possible. The Staff - Top notch. Gard was a busy guy, so I left him alone for the most part. Grasshopper is a very nice guy. He was very gracious and playful with my 10 month old. Very kid friendly, and he was real helpful in giving us directions to avoid Orlando rush hour. Saved us a half hour at least. I'll report back after I go again. There were a couple of basses I wanted to check out.
