Got my new Fodera V.W. Monarch Bolt on 4 string bass today. Sorry I dont have a pic to put up, but Im working on it. It has been my dream to own a Fodera for several years now. I purchased this one from Bass Central, they are having a year end clearance sale, so I got a good buy in it. They have one more left, but it isnt a PJ, but rather a JJ, but I played it when I was there last week, and it rocks, too. Mine has a mahogany body and a beautiful spalted maple top. The pickups are EMG PJ with the Mike Pope 2 band preamp. The fingerboard is Kingwood, with brass nut and brass Fodera Bridge. I have a Hipshot D tuner ordered for it which should be here in a couple of days. I need that because I mostly play 5s and I need to at least be able to access a low D. I dealt with Gard at Bass Central, who some of you know is a member of this forum, under the name Base 6, or it might be Gard, Im not sure. Anyway, he is a pleasure to deal with and they went out of their way to help me get it quick. I know this thread doesnt have any purpose other than my bragging of my new bass, but I cant help it, Im so excited. Would love to talk about Foderas, so feel free to chime in with your opinions and pics.
