The concept behind the N.Y.C. basses is a more affordable "stock" instrument hand crafted, using the same quality woods as Fodera use in their more expensive custom models. In order to keep the cost down they build these in small batches, using the best of a limited palette of fine woods. Most N.Y.C. basses will be capped with a flame or quilted maple top. Other woods will offered occassionally as they come available.
These are the specs of this particular bass:
• 34" scale
• 22 fret fingerboard
• Dual cutaway design and bolt on neck
• 3 piece maple neck
• Rosewood fingerboard
• Alder Body
• Seymour Duncan Single Coil pickups.
• Active/Passive Mike Pope preamp with Volume, Balance, Master Tone, 2 band EQ.
As with all Fodera instruments, N.Y.C. basses are made with loving care from the best aged and select wood, hand fit, finished and setup to play like a dream. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned pro, the N.Y.C. basses will perform for you.
This bass has a really vintage sound to it, thanks to the alder body and Indian rosewood fingerboard but there's also plenty of attack. The PJ pickup arrangement offers the perfect combination of classic and modern tones.
