I am primarily looking to trade, but am open to a sale as well. As far as trades go, looking for another Fodera 5. I need something lighter. The bass is just too heavy for me. I play long 4 hour plus gigs and by about hour 3, my body starts to ache. If my gigs were shorter, I'd be keeping this, but playing 4 hours non-stop is just too much. So, this is up on the block.
I've owned 3 Fodera's before this one and none of them compare to it. This is by far the most versatile and pure perfection to my ears bass. It's very snappy and growly yet smooth and buttery.
It's been played and has a few dings here and there. It's not a museum piece as it's been used. I can take more detailed pics tonight if I get the chance, but I will send better pics of the scuffs or dings to interested parties.
Asking price is $7500 shipped within CONUS only. No international shipping on this one.
As far as trades go, looking for a lighter Imperial 5 or Emperor 5. I prefer dual coils, but will consider ones with singles. The bass must be lighter than 11lb though.
I might consider other trades for high end gear like Wal, Sadowsky, MTD, etc... But they must be 5 strings and depending on the instrument, cash will be needed.
Bass is from 2005
