FS/FT Fodera Imperial 5 Elite
Ok so I was at the Fodera shop the other day and got to play a 33" scale MG standard. While I hated the C string instead of the B, I realized that the smaller scale and string spacing is really the way I want to go. So I'm seeing if anyone has a 33" scale Fodera that they're willing to trade before I just go ahead and sell mine to fund a new one.
What I'm REALLY looking for is basically a MG Imperial 5 but with the extended B headstock and is strung B-G. However I'm pretty flexible as long as it's a 33" scale and smaller string spacing. Just had this bass appraised for $11,500 so I'd be comfortable selling for $8500 + shipping
if I can't find a bass to trade for. It's in incredible condition. Here are the specs:
Flamed maple tone block
3 piece maple neck
Birdseye maple fb
Olive non-solid top
Duncan/Fodera dual coils (fit to EMG shape)
2011 Pope pre

Can you put up link to newborn gallery, please?
|bassdoubler ||12-02-2012 09:37 AM |
sorry, but the bass was built in 2005 so it doesn't appear in the newborn gallery! I was equally disappointed when the guys at Fodera told me this. However, the bass was updated in 2011 with the newest Pope preamp.

Yeah, man, the 33 in scale with 17.5 spacing rocks! Got it on one of my Foderas and love it. You will, too ;)

sale fell through bump!
|bassdoubler ||12-04-2012 08:39 PM |
Price drop!! Not goin any lower!!
|bassdoubler ||12-05-2012 12:24 AM |
hmmm....had a couple possible deals fall through and now nobody's biting....I may have to take this as a sign and keep the bass. It's the most incredible 5 string I've ever played and as much as I'd like a 33" scale Imperial I can't really see parting with this bass right now and waiting 15+ months for a new one! I'll keep this page up until the weekend and if it's not gone by then I'm closing the thread!!!!
