These days I'm finding myself playing bass more and more for bands, and I even have a big audition this coming weekend in the city. I have an entry level bass as of now and I actually like it a good deal but I see myself upgrading sometime in the future. Being the huge Fernandes fan that I am I'm holding out for a Fernandes Telecaster bass copy because I like the styling so much, and you just don't see that many of them out there. But I started thinking: is there a good reason there aren't that many out there? What are the tonal characteristics of this guitar? Does anyone have any substantial hands-on experience with one of these designs? Thanks.
