Hi everyone, I'm new to this site- have been playing for over 20 years now- old enough to have a decent career- now looking to treat myself to something I could never get as a high school kid... I'd like to get a high end custom bass. So far I have a few used Warwicks which I absolutely love... but I'm itching to get either a Carl Thompson or a Fodera (new and custom). I can find plenty of reviews on Foderas but not much on CT basses other than from Primus fans or the postings on the CT site itself (and seem biased). Does anyone have experience with CT basses (how they feel and play, etc)? Are they worth the hype? They certainly look cool with the 3d scroll and the woods. These basses seem about impossible to test drive (not carried at any store for the most part).
