Selling my Fodera Monarch Yin Yang Deluxe 5
Pau Amarillo / Purpleheart Top
Maple Board with Purpleheart dots, 24 frets
Pope Flexcore preamp
Weight: 4,2 kg
This is an opportunity to get one really rare model of the Fodera line. Victor Wooten's Yin Yang Signature will be built only 6 times a year by the Fodera team and most of them are 4-stringers. Retail price today is 8.760 GBP/ 10.500 EUR/ 14.000 USD + plus shipping/import. And - believe it or not - these prices are still paid for them ! The YYD5 is only available directly from Fodera.
This particular Yin Yang has the red/yellow Purpleheart/Pau Amarillo top which was the original config of Victor Wootens initial YY bass.
The bass is ABSOLUTELY easy to play - lowest action - smooth feel of the neck and very lightweight for a 5-string. The sound is extremely explosive, yet organic in the mids. The B string is fully integrated.
The preamp is a Pope Flexcore which works great in this bass. I will give both midrange controls with the bass, which are not yet installed, and the EQ on/off switch. These parts can be easily installed later without soldering (of course drilling holes is needed). The original 2-Bd preamp is still there and will come with the bass too. Original teardrop hardcase and tools included as well.
The condition is indeed MINT - absolutely no damages, no dings, no flaws. Of course there are some veeeery minor scuffs in the polish which appear after a few minutes playing, but you will need to have a close look. Structurally perfect and technically fully working.
Asking 7.200 GBP / 8.600 Euro / 11.500 USD ono plus shipping. No trades. Please note that we in EU have to pay about 30% more than US buyers (incl. shipping and Import) - so my price might be tempting for EU buyers only. Anyway - I'm open for reasonable cash offers from anywhere.
Bass is located in Duesseldorf/Germany.
