    Bass sounds fusioness and jazzy. Tried to play it in my hip-hop band, so.....my ultrajazz is more fatty. This is sick fusion bass) chords are perfect, sustain unbrlivable long and clear. sounds near-smiths or something like that =) PM me if U intrested)

    Hi, congratulations, this bass looks great! I am a big fodera fan, do you have pictures of the back of the bass? I want to see how you worked the transition from tone block to the neck... Very cool bass!
     
  18. What finish did you decide to do?
