    Hey everyone,
    I've heard a lot about Victor Wooten's Fodera tenor and I just wondered what differences there were. Are the strings just different? I'd appreciate any input. Thanks in advance!

  2. I might shift this to basses. If they deem that it should be in setup, send 'er back!:p

    :D:D

    vics tenor bass i think is a little shorter scale than a regular 34" and they do not have a low E, but rather a high Bb or C.

    I actually emailed Anthony Wellington (Vic's bass tech) about this once.

    Vic's tenor is a Monarch with a 32" scale and strings tuned A-D-G-C. Other than that, there's no difference.
