Fodera has introduced the new Yin Yang Standard bass, based on their Victor Wooten Yin Yang Deluxe. The company consulted Wooten on the creation, as he has “long wanted a Yin Yang that could be more widely available.” The bass utilizes all the same materials and specifications from their Brooklyn-made instrument with a lower price point.
The Yin Yang Standard features a Red Alder body with a flame maple top painted with the yin yang symbol. The bolt-on neck is a single piece of maple with an ebony fingerboard and pearloid dot inlays and Mother-of-Pearl side position markers. Electronics include EMG P/J pickups and a Fodera/Pope NYC 3-band preamp with the NYC control layout.
The Fodera Yin Yang Standard bass is available for a list price of $4,750. The company is currently accepting deposits on their website, and will begin shipping to customers in July, 2011.
