I've been having a question lately that is bugging me. What REALLY makes basses so expensive? How much more work goes into a Fodera then a Modulus to justify the $3-4000 difference in price? A Musicman vs. Modulus? Warwick vs. Fender? I'm not trying to incite any flames here. I'm trying to justifiy spending a few thousand on a certain bass and I want to see what I'm really paying for. Just some general info would be good. Is it woods? Construction? Components? Method of construction? I'm not really using the Fodera as my choice, just as an example because I know it's cheaper to cnc a fender then to handbuild a fodera.
