    I just received this bass and it's everything I thought it would be, much like a Fodera in tone, feel and looks. There are very few of these in the country and I may hold on to this if the right trade does not come up as I'm looking for a fretless 5 or a Sadowsky. Here is the old thread:

    and more recent:

  2. Wow! Apparently your bass collection has no limits and knows no bounds!
     
  3. Very nice bass! Are you sure you don't want to just sell it outright instead of trade?

    how about Zebaoth 6 fretted?
     
  5. great bass, played it. rare fingerboard these days

    I have a ebony/koa/walnut SC5. I have compared it to several new Fodera Imperials and these basses hold up

    and a 1/3rd , heck a 1/4 of the new Fodera prices

    bump
     
  6. you might want to also mention that bass also has compound radius fingerboard, just like Fode.......
     
  7. This bass is so sick! I've played it as well when it first came to the states, the neck feels really good...

    Good luck with the sale. I really hope these start to gain more popularity in the US, they are definitely on par with much more expensive instruments!
