    I was just sitting here and thinking about how much the bass has evolved over the years.

    Who is credited with making the first single-cut?

    The first one I remember seeing was the Fodera Imperial models.

    I think you're about 30 years short.

    If you mean the Les Paul/Tele singlecut, yeah, that's been around forever. If you mean the extended singlecut that we think of today when we say "singlecut bass" though, I think Fodera was the first.

    I agree with you...but the original didn't specify.
