    Boogie:

    My next bass will be an unlined fretless 5 or 6 string bass. I have a Roscoe SKB-3006 and love it. How does your Fodera compare to the Roscoe?

    I've always been impressed with the Foderas, but during a recent trip to a music store with a number of both (all fretted), I noticed that the B strings on the Foderas were a bit floppy. Not as much as I've seen on other basses, but floppy none-the-less.

    Comments??? And of course from others who have had experience with both.

    Disclaimer: I know that Foderas are great basses. That being said, some Fodera owners can be a bit protective of anything said about them. I'm just looking for some objectivity. Thank you in advance.

    I just got this one off Ebay. It hasn't arrived yet so I don't have any real good pics yet. Probably the cheapest one on here, but not bad :)
