I don't have the money for a fodera, but I would like to incorporate some of Anthony's design specifications. I like a thicker body with a single passive pup (Maybe no electronics or knobs at all!)What else should I consider as important? Semi-hollow? Set neck? single cut? I am a mono bass ind of guy and I want to know one bass inside and out and I want to use it for anything that I do. BUT, it needs to sound good, and be able to conform to a few different styles. I have always owned Modulus 5 stringers and these are fairly versatile basses, I just need to know where to go from here. I need something that will help me to express the tone that is in my hands....post away...and thanks!
