This top is really unreal and only a few other figured ash basses have come out of the shop.
The bass has been played off and on during it's life and has some dings and normal wear, and one noticeable crack near the nut on the upper side of neck.
Really amazing Mahogany on the back:
I'm asking $8699
(Price drop!) Including shipping CONUS via PP or wire transfer. This is less
than what I have into it. I bought it used two years ago and Fodera's new basses have had a price increase since then. International Shipping available- PM me.
This bass is also going to be available for viewing/playing at Premier Bass Guitars shortly as well if you are in Colorado.
I am looking for sale only, no trades, as I am selling this to pay for my new Fodera I've already received. I would love to keep both if I could!
