    Hey Guys, I purchased this bass on 12/28/11 It has been truly wonderful, but alas I have an opportunity to pick up an Imperial so i need to sell this to fund that bass. That is the ONLY reason I am selling this wonderful bass. Trust me if I could afford both, I would.

    This bass has some great pedigree for it. Jason, at Fodera actually owned this bass. He only sold it because he had a bass built very similar to it. Being that Jason owned you know its great, because he has the opportunity to get only the best of the best.

    Photo bucket is being strange and not letting me upload pictures right now, so please PM me and ill shoot over some High quality photos.

    Here is an excerpt from the emails Jason sent to the previous owner.

    -----------------------------------------------------------

    Here is the Monarch 4 Elite that I am putting up for sale. I will absolutely vouch for (it) as being a really, really great sounding, feeling and playing bass!

    It is a 2004 Monarch 4 Elite with a Walnut Body, Ash Tone Block, Duncan Dual Coils and 2011 Preamp. The top is Curly Maple (solid Top) with a Birdseye Maple FB.

    Here is the way that it would price out as a new bass....

    Monarch 4 Elite = $8,000
    Solid Top on Elite = $500
    Dual Coils in Wooden Covers = $1,050

    Total List (if New) = $9,550
    --------------------------------------------------

    AS state above specs are

    Monarch Body
    Deluxe Neck joint
    Walnut Body
    Maple Neck
    Ash Tone Block
    Duncan Dual Colis (Wood Covers)
    Curly Maple top
    2011 Preamp
    Birdseye Fretboard

    I dont i believe i forgot anything but if I did ill update this thread.

    Asking 7000 Shipped to the Lower 48
    Any questions please ask!! Thanks

    Don't know off hand but I'll get it soon. I've never had a problem with weight though. Quite comfortable
