FS Only: Fodera Monarch 6 string
Some history about this bass: This bass was built in 1989 and was the first 6 string Monarch built. To add to that, I was also the first narrow neck 6 string built (as evidenced by the custom machined bridge). Specs are as follows:
*Walnut body with Curly Maple top
*3 piece Maple neck with ebony fretboard
* neck through construction
*Abalone Block inlays
*Active preamp with bass/treble boost/cut
*Weight approx. 9lbs (per bathroom scale)
*16mm string spacing
The only issue is that the finish is worn on the top side of the upper horn; other than that, there are no other cosmetic or operational issues with this bass. Price dropped to $7500.00 or best reasonable offer, shipped CONUS and with the original Fodera gig bag.
Will ship international, but you must pay for the shipping charges. Please note, this is for sale only. Additional pics can seen at http://www.flickr.com/photos/100570640@N03/

Nice! Just curious; what's the serial number on this one? It's almost exactly a 6-string version of my '88 Monarch 5-string. They might be sisters :)

Lovely bass! How wide is it at the nut and the 24th fret?
|rockosocko ||08-26-2013 10:41 AM |
She's about 2" at the nut and 3.25" at the 24th fret. I do a lot of chordal work, this bass makes that type of playing a cinch.

how many truss rods?
|rockosocko ||08-27-2013 04:51 AM |
I believe it is a single truss rod, the neck is narrower than their standard six string

Wow, that is a stunner!
