    This is a 2006 model I believe. It is in amazing condition with hardly any blemishes. Has very low action with no buzz, has an amazing punchy/jacoish finger tone and don't be fooled by the Rosewood board because it slaps better than maple.

    Ash body
    flame top
    maple neck with rosewood board
    FOdera/Duncan jazz pickups
    Mike pope 3-band preamp (vol,blend,stacked treb/bass and mid)
    black hard ware
    Two Pickguards : one see thru see below pics

    Ships in hardcase.

    It's beautiful. Does it sound anything like a Sadowsky NYC Will Lee?

    Fodera NYC models were made in small shop in Japan then send to the NYC shop for ensemble, fret work etc. Check the link and Jason's response to this thread. Last production was made in 2011. I have been digging all this information since this is my 5th Fodera NYC. Good Luck with the sale, these are an amazing basses someone is going to be enjoying a bass that has extremely comfortable neck, with a tight B string and amazing sound with that mid's that cut thru the mix. These basses are addictive you can't put them down.
