Fodera Anthony Jackson 5 string. Chambered body, Cedar top, Seymour Duncan dual coil P/U, 35" scale, 2010 Fodera / Mike Pope preamp, ebony fingerboard, red cedar body, weight 8.5 lbs. Serial Number J531593N.
This unique bass was originally made for bassist Ed Lucie, probably around 1993. It was originally made to be tuned E to high C with a D-tuner on the E string. It originally had a Bartolini soapbar pickup and a RMC ( Richard McClish) piezo system
Ed sold it around 2006 and it was converted to low B to G tuning . The pickup and preamp were also replaced. The bass changed hands about 3 months after Ed's sale, and I purchased it from the third owner, which leads me to surmise that it may have been converted for easier resale.
I had a new Fodera bridge and preamp installed in 2011 and removed the piezo system.
October 2012 I replaced the ceramic pickup with a Seymour Duncan alnico pickup.
