F/S: Fodera Emperor Deluxe 5-String - Another Price Drop
Up for sale is my beloved Fodera Emperor Deluxe 5 String bass. I am the original and only owner. The bass is in exceptional condition with no dings or scratches.
The only sign of age is some very light fading on the bridge / hardware. (Nothing that a good polish couldn't fix). The maple / walnut spec is a rare Fodera combination that delivers an amazing tone!
Specs are as follows:
Birth Year: Late 2007
Model: Emperor Deluxe 5 String
Top Wood: 5A Quilted Maple
Body Wood: Walnut
Fingerboard Wood: Birdseye Maple
Neck: 3 Piece Maple
Neck Joint: Dovetail

Pickup Covers: Black Plastic (Exposed Poles)**
Preamp: Fodera / Pipe Custom Shop 3-Band (Pre 2010)
Deluxe Fodera Hardshell Case
*Bass originally shipped with black plastic preamp controls. Bass now has matching gold preamp controls. Will ship with original black plastic controls too.
**Bass will ship with spare set of Fodera Black Plastic pickup covers, (non-exposed poles).
Bass is located in Melbourne, Australia.
An identical bass ordered today with these specs would list at $10K USD.

Not interested in Trades.
The top on that is stunning! GLWTS
FYI to all, not interested in trades. Thank you.
Why would you sell something like that?! It's beautiful...and I don't usually like Fodera's
I have two Fodera's that are more similar in tone than they are dis-similar...
Lots of money to have tied up in just two instruments, so I'm hoping to turn this into 2 or 3 other basses that will diversify my tonal arsenal...
Will definitely be hard to let it go though, that's for sure!
The top is awesome, and that walnut is insane. GLWS
Beyond the figuring, the dark walnut and light maple top look killer together. Very cool contrast.
Thanks all. It is certainly a beautiful bass! I'll be sad to let it go!
