Here we have a wonderful bass: The Fodera Matt Garrison Standard, and it comes closer to a Custom Fodera than ever.
Standard series Fodera basses are made at the Fodera shop in Brooklyn by the Fodera team ad the same materials. The only difference with a Custom Fodera is that you cannot make any changes to the model (fixed specs). This allows Fodera to schedule production and optimize the use of parts and tools, hence the lower price tag.
While the custom model has 19mm spacing at the bridge, this MGS comes with 17mm spacing, which makes it particularly good for chord work, arpeggios, etc, as well as Matt's incredible technique, of course. The Pau Ferro fingerboard has been at the Fodera shop for 25 years so it is incredibly stable now. Perfect access up to the 26th fret. Small frets also make it a breeze to shift positions and make fast runs up and down the neck.
A High End bass with an amazingly comfortable design and great playability (allows for ridiculous low action) with a palette of sounds that's wider than we expected.
This is an ex-demo bass htat has never been gigged and has only been played at home for some hours. Absolutely mint condition. You save some nice money and also the long built time.
