...in his Fodera? I just saw him on Conan, and what an amazing tone! I know it's a culmination of things to create the tone, but the heart is the pickups. I know they're EMG p/j's but are they just the standard off-the-shelf you or I can buy? Also, where can I find a Mike Pope preamp? Can you sense a Warmoth made Fodera? ...find out what kind of woods the bass is made out of, the pickups the preamp.....imagine the possibilities! It would never be a Fodera Monarch, but it would be the closest I'll ever come.
