    PRICE DROP! $9,500! I have been agonizing over selling this amazing bass. My wife is pregnant and it's not being used as much as I would like (and will certainly be used less when the baby comes). It is in absolutely mint condition, gigged once and used on some recordings. Newborn link is here: http://newborns.fodera.com/newborn-gallery/newborn-254/ I'll post current pics and sound bytes asap. It's "birthday" was September 2011. To build this new now would be at least $13,000, probably more (feel free to correct me if I'm mistaken). I would sell it for $9,500 plus shipping. I live just outside the Lincoln tunnel on the Jersey side if you want to try it out. I'm really not interested in trades but would consider $10k cash plus instrument if you had something sweet in the $1,000 - $2,000 range (that I won't feel guilty about not playing). I will bring it to Fodera and have it set up / given a clean bill of health prior to sale. Reasonable offers only please, I am not in any rush or under any pressure to sell. Would just hate to have it sit there unused or worse yet, knocked over and dinged up by a toddler ;). This bass needs to be played!!!!!
