    Are you sure that's his signature model? The one he's been pictured with in the magazines has a goofy headstock where the B is anchored up where the A normally is (3rd post, top side) with the E anchored at the first post and the A at the second.

    If you mean Fodera 6, maybe;)

    Thats definetly not his Fodera model if he even has one. I know that he's got a great looking Fodera 6 that has replaced his Modulus as his regular bass but its a regular double cutaway 6 with a natural flame maple top.

    That is not his personal bass. That is a used Beez-Elite that's been floating around for awhile. It ended up at the Fodera booth for the NAMM show.

    Oteil's Fodera is a Monarch six string with a Maple top and dual coils.

    I believe that's the Beez over at Bass Exchange.

    We will wait for your call, but with inflation the way it is, anything can happen.... we're also thinking about possibly taking first born children as a lay-a-way option in the future. ;)
