    Is that chestnut burl? I've asked many times if any was left and was almost always told no...where did this come from?

    I also have to ask...is that by chance Mike Pope's new bass in the background we see there.
  5. I probably wouldn't be into the fret style.

    Since you started the thread, you're gonna have to tell us how much that beast cost... spill it!

    Oh and in case anyone was wondering, Funkize wouldn't pay $300 for that bass.

    I think you mean $300 wouldn't pay the sales taxes on that bass.

    Sweet bass. :) The owner must be a firm believer in the "tone is in your hands" maxim. I couldn't deal with not having a tone knob accessible while I play, but I dig the clean look. Beautiful, thick top and board!

    Is this one sold to someone outside of the US?

    I seem to hear of MG4's and AJ4's being sold to cats in Japan and other locations of the Pacific-rim. Why is that?

    My co-workers and I were thinking the same thing... wonder how long till it's changed.

  14. Yeah, that signature has got to go!

    Hey Vanselus,

    Consider this thread "informational" only.... I'm definitely not looking to start another "It's not worth it" thread! ;)

    I love single-cuts but it just looks weird to me with only four strings..

    I'm mostly a 4 string guy but I'm still going to have to say that looks ridiculous. It needs at least 2 more strings just to look right.

    I can't get over the body shape. I don't like SCs much as it is, but that one's a REAL turn off for me. Ugh, well, I'm sure whoever ordered it is happy with it, Foderas rocks. What kind of wood is that top?

    I bet it plays wonderfully, but *I* Cant stand the shape.

    I changed my sig due to popular demand... Those were quotes from T shirt hell, If they offend ANYONE please just pm me, and I will change it, I think they are amusing but if it offends anyone I will gladly change it.
