    but if I had to pick I'd say Fodera. They make some damn good basses. I'm just in love with my FBB

    good 'ol USA/Tampa fla.
    none
    IMO you're talking apples & oranges.Dont get me wrong Warwicks are good basses,but they do not compare to a Fodera as far as tone,playability,and craftsmanship.

    Are you kidding or what, nobody's..I mean...you know:D

    Get some nice Fender but be careful, Sadowsky's look pretty similar;)

    the general feeling among most bassists is that Fodera basses are much nicer than Warwick....however it really is up to the individual what bass would work best for them

    Fodera. They're in different leagues as far as craftsmanship and quality goes, at least from the ones I've played thus far.

    Whichever one he got, it better be one heck of a bass to take 12 years to build!

    Hard to say. I will say this if you sell later you will take a hit. I took a hit when I sold both of my thumb's but got a good deal on the one I bought used (four string neck through). I got a pretty good deal on my new five string but the used market is where it's at. When I see used thumb's going for $900 I think to myself "buy it, if for no other reason it's crazy good deal". I can't say anything about fodera but I'm pretty sure one would take an even bigger hit as they cost more (not because they are not as good, I'm sure they are better) but because it's got to be tough to sell a bass that was custom made for one persons particular build spec's and tone preference.
