    For Sale... I have two Fodera basses listed now and will likely just sell the first one that goes. Need to fund a pretty costly pair of studio monitors, so have to sacrifice this one or my MG Signature. :meh:

    Shipped CONUSA for $7750 Update: SOLD on 01/01/14

    Specs and Info:

    FLAME KOA MONARCH 5 DELUXE
    Birth Month/Year: January 2012
    Model: Monarch 5 Deluxe
    Top Wood: Koa Flame
    Body Wood: Mahogany
    Fingerboard Wood: Dark Pau Ferro
    Neck Wood: 3-pc. Hard Rock Maple
    Neck Joint: Dovetail
    Scale Length: 34"
    Strings: 5 (19.0mm Spacing)
    Frets: 24 (Large)

    Control Layout: Monarch Layout

    Description from Fodera Newborn Page:

    A simply gorgeous Monarch 5 Deluxe that uses some of our old growth, dark Pau Ferro for its fingerboard rather than the "traditional" pairing of a Mahogany body with an Indian Rosewood Fingerboard. Our Pau Ferro is heavier and denser than Indian Rosewood and the result is a slight brightening of the overall tone spectrum...

    Will ship in Fodera Deluxe HSC.

    That thing is beautiful. Don't know how you could bear to part with it. For a pair of studio monitors? They must be pretty special. What kind are you looking for?

    I'm on the list for a pair of Thomas Barefoot MM27 Gen 2's... But I may stretch and go with a pair of ATC's.

    I had the Barefoot MM27 Gen 1 and they were nothing less than superb! Would be easy to go back to the well and bring the Gen 2's in house.

    Hate to have to sell this beauty, but one thing you cannot do with a Fodera is mix an album...

    Much interest, but still here... Bump!

    Best,

    Mike
