To this day, this remains the finest instrument I've ever touched. Purchased new in 1999, this bass is in NOS mint condition. If you've ever considered challenging yourself to play the six using an instrument that will reward every element of your technique and musicianship, take note.
From the dramatic, sweeping curves of the carved top to the simply gorgeous and rich Brazilian fingerboard, this is as much a work of art as it is a premier example of the height of Vinnie Fodera's craftsmanship.
- Hand-carved, highly figured Bubinga top
- Ash body wings and tone block
- Brazilian rosewood fingerboard
- 36" scale
- Aero Instruments dual coil pickups in wood covers
- Gold hardware
- Mint Fodera teardrop XL hardshell case
This bass is flawless, stunning and exquisite in every sense of every word.
I'm on the fence as to whether I actually sell this or not. I am looking at another Fodera that will replace this. If that deal doesn't happen, I will not sell.
$10,800 (which is an extremely reasonable price for an instrument of this caliber, features and vintage). The only other thing
I would consider is a trade for an early Fodera 5 with a Chestnut top and 19mm spacing.
Thanks for looking.
