I understand why, it just perplexes me.
Ive heard of guys around Nashville getting it done for 450-500 bucks.
I had Mike Lull do one (Mk1) and he charged me 900. Never again will I take it to that shop.
There's the one lined fretless for sale that would be an easy conversion, Im sure you know which one it is!
Good to know, thanks! I’ve heard great things about the Mouradian shop.
Mike Forrester on the north side of Baltimore does excellent work. He fretted my ProIIe a few years ago. Pretty sure it was very reasonable under $500
Not to derail the tread too much, but do you have any pictures of that laying around? I'm curious to see how it turned out.
Why do you say that?
my pleasure.... you can see my initials "SJS" at the 7th fresh ... this is simply the finest Fender Jazz bass I've ever played.. and I've played quite a few including Custom Shop models of all sorts..
Not to derail but specs please!!!! Absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!!!
Dennis Galuzka built, Fender Masterbuilt Jazz fully custom ...AAA flame maple neck, ebony fretboard, "Zero fret", abalone inlays, initials in inlays, Joe Barden pickups, 9v Sadawski pre-amp, 2 piece Ash body, nitro cellulose finish.. Ordered mid 2006, delivered mid 2007... total cost at the time $7200.... quoted similar build recent for $9500 and 2-3 years wait.
The infamous Wal-dera (Wal + Fodera) has been listed for sale on Reverb (note: not my bass, no affiliation with the seller):
Interesting how the B String is bent around the E string machine head...
Not exactly the kind of attention to detail one might expect out of a $10K+ Fodera.
Thank you sir!!!!
To be fair, though, it appears (to my eyes, at least) that Fodera may have tweaked the tuner and/or headstock layout in later builds to avoid that awkwardness with the extended B string configuration:
… and now back to your regularly-scheduled Wal programming!
what? That’s a standard headstock layout????
It says: sounds like Zombie from the Cranberries! What a strange way to describe a Wal or Fodera. Not the most adventurous bass line in the world. Not something I associate with these basses.
You might think that but the Cranberries are something of a revered band in more indie rock circles and Mike Hogan is a well known Wal user. Never been my bag other than the big singles (and Zombie is probably the biggest) but iconic in indie as Rush or Tool are in rock/prog. Even if they’re not quite up there with bands like The Cure in the collective consciousness. A reminder that not everyone’s entry route to Wal was Geddy and Justin.
… or even Mick or Percy for that matter!
In the second picture, is that some sort of strap button on the bottom under the lower horn?
