Just peeped the Beez Elite 5 at The Groove Shoppe website:
OUCH!!! That's hot!!
Stuff of dreams
Sure, it looks nice, but to me. . . . . .REAL sexy would be a figured wood top and head.
To each his own, huh?
the pup cover needs to be ebony or white (holly?)
Definitely black. And the back of the neck & headstock needs to be finished. Other than that, am impressive-looking instrument...
(I wonder if adding a pickup in the neck position would improve the sound? For that matter, I wonder what it sounds like? And I wonder what all those knobs & switches control...)
Holly is one of the most understated yet most Beautiful wood that can be used for a top! Very Nice Looking.
Its tuff to find Holly large enough for Full tops because Holly trees are so small.
Thats one nice piece of Holly as well. Usually you see little imperfections and people comment on the white finish not looking well done. They dont seem to realize its a white wood, and isnt usually so perfect as that top there is.
personnaly my all time favorite fodera is that one:
I don't like single cut basses but the Beez is great.
That -is- sweet!! Actually if I had to pick one Fodera model as my fave it would have to be the original Jackson Contrabass..
yeah Mark, that's Lenny Fatigati's fretless beez'elite... It's something like 3 inches thick, chambered... but still 11 pounds (or more) from what he has mentioned. I'm pretty sure that Lenny is a TB'er as well (maybe something like LennyonBass).
I personally like the one that Yvon posted...
Sure, it's flawless holly, but it still doesn't do anything for me.
It's just plain white, nothing else. No colour. No figuring. No reason I see to use it as a top
I think it is a beautiful instrument. It's a nice change from all the figured wood and fancy tops. If I had a spare $5,000+ I'd snag it!
How about equisite, understated elegance?
Next to "the beast", this gets my vote for sexiest Fodera
This bass belongs to a friend of mine. It sounds exquisite but i recall it weighs a ton !
I absolutely love holly tops that are clean and blemish free. That is a great looking instrument.
in person that top looks like a pool of cream...It is truly beautiful in its simplicity.
A clean holly top must be at least as rare as the highly figured tops.
This comment has me confused.
I think i'd rather have a top like this than one with spalted(rotting) wood on the top.
I thought it was a paint job...
