    No offense or anything to anyone, but IMO, i think that the fodera's with the twin J's (aero's i believe?) would look better covered. Also, Garey, can you explain the extended B headstock? Is the gear reversed, so it turns oppisite? or geared so it turns like the others? Isn't it kind of a pain having it go E - A - B - D - G ? I know that would confuse me, but i guess you'd get used to it after awhile.

    Peace,
    Scott D.


    P.S. The !!~!!~!! ??~??~?? thing is EXTREMELY annoying. In the RB thread, i thought i was going to die.

    it wasnt annoying till you guys pointed it out, now it is, so annoying i might put that punk on ignore:mad:
     
  10. woa...ok #1, im not a punk kid. if your saying that becuase of my picture, im not trying to be some "punk skater kid" im just..wearing a yellow hat and i thought i looked funny, so thats my pic. And about my little thing. Im sorry that i annoy so many people? I dident know just going ??~?? and !!~!! really made so many people loose control like that. Its becuase back in 6th grade, i did it becuase someone was getting on my AOL screen name and useing it, so i did that so people knew it was me. It kinda stuck and now its a bad habit. I even end up doing it on school assignments. Im sorry??~??

    The extended B gives the B string a tighter feel, less floppy. It "feels" as if there is more tension on the B this way, but its actually percieved flex, as tension remains the same. I think its the best B I've ever played...and yes, at first the order of the pegs confused me, but not its all cool...

    No, I was a non-mango. :( I thought that might have been you from the location and the pic of the Fodera. Not to derail the thread but Vic and Anthony are going to be here in Portland in Feb. E-mail Anthony already and hope we can stop by and say "hi" after their show.

    I haven't worked with Joel personally...but with his partner David. The Groove Shoppe gets my highest recommendation when it comes to buying a used Fodera...super to work with!! And just look at some the beauties they have (had).
