FS/FT: Fodera Emperor Elite II 5 - on hold
Selling this Blonde Beauty in MINT condition. The bass is like new, nearly unplayed. I got it as part of a bigger trade and would like to offer it here before I try to become familiar with it. Just prefer 34" basses most of the time.

Full Quilted Maple Top
Birdseye Maple Board, Abalone Blocks, 24 frets
Factory installed Hipshot detuner
Wooden Ramp (Maple)
Dual Coils in wooden covers
Pope preamp (newest version)
Weight: 4,9 kg

This blonde beauty is like new - absolutely not a single mark on it. It even smells new ! Action is low and the sound is typical Fodera authoritative. 4.9 kg sounds heavy, but the bass feels much lighter, it is well balanced on the strap.
The bass has been built in late 2011 and is still visible on the Newborn page of the Fodera site. Instead of the black ramp shown there it has a matching Maple ramp now.
A factory-installed detuner allows for wall breaking lows with a deep A. The B string sounds fully integrated.
The sound is quite open in the treble and even along all registers down to a deep low end. Wonderful slap tone.
Original teardrop hardcase included - like new as well.
Asking 9.500 USD / 5.900 GBP / 7.100 Euro ono plus shipping. This bass retails at 13.200 USD and has a street price in EU of 11.200 EUR at least. Trades welcome but high-end stuff only.
Bass is located in Duesseldorf/Germany.
