I'm thinking of selling/trading my Fodera Imperial 5 fretless.
Full Macassar Ebony Top
Macassar Ebony Board (lined with purpleheart stripes)
34 scale neck, 5-pc with purpleheart stringers
1 Duncan Dual Coil in wooden cover, neck position
Graphtech Piezo saddles per string with CafeWalter Piezo Buffer (Noisefree !), These Piezos are installed after.market by German Luthier and easily removable.
New 2011 Pope preamp (configurable internally by lots of jumpers)
String spacing <17mm
No side dot markers !
Perfect condition. Only small wear on the board from roundwounds. Currently strung with Thomastik Flats. The bass is configured for E-C tuning.
The bass sounds and rings as it should. This bass should be treated by fretless elaborated hands. I am not good enough to be honest.
Comes with original teardrop case. Retail price for this bass would be around 12.000 Euro plus 1-2 years wait. I've seen less than a handful Fodera Fretless' since years on the used market. Don't miss out this chnace if you look for one.
Asking 5.900,- EUR firm plus shipping. Or trade for a fretted Fodera of similar value in very good condition. No low-ball offers please.
