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!

Model: Emperor Deluxe 5 String
Top Wood: 5A Quilted Maple
