    Save them as jpegs instead of bmps. You can do that with Paint

    Nice one......

    I wanted to ask you how the B string with the extended peg is working on the 34"scale. Is there enough tension for low action and no buzz?

    Thanks

    I love the koa...I really shouldn't want more of these considering what I have and what's on the way but this one did it to me. I love the Garrison basses...

    Very good question!

    Althoug I've never been so happy and enthusiast about a bass in 16 years of playing, I've to admit that it has a diferent low B; I mean: I' ve usually owned (or tryed) basses that were looking for tightness and compression on their low B, with very nice results (for example my Quantum fretless, or my sold pre-gibson Tobias); well, I feel that Fodera's philosophy for low B strings is quite different: they look for smoothness of felling, and an open, natural sound; the low b of my Fodera (and other ones I've tryed) is very smooth,and piano-like sounding, it is not tight and compressed; it slaps like an E string; once again, it reminds the low B sound Patitucci had on his ken smith (listen to his didactic videos); to tell you the thruth, I've some buzz on low B, and on some frets at the end of the fingerboard; I have to bring the bass to my luthiers because I feel it needs a set-up: I don't know if they did a good set-up at fodera's before shipping, but anyway you know what happens to a neck when a bass takes an aeroplane, as did mine obiouvsly.


    I would be very, very courious to know about other fodera-players opinions about their low-B. Jared???

    The low B on my 36" scale AJ 6 is excellent, very controllable, deep and open sounding with a nice full range sound (not just low end thud). Great feel, slaps well, no buzz.

    Construction is similar to yours but mine has Lane Poors and HAZ preamp. Probably makes a difference.
     
  11. I love Figured Koa. Such a beautiful wood.

    Nice bass, man!
