    I am in NO hurry to move this bass... that said I have found I perfer the PJ setup on a monarch so if there is anyone in Talkbass land that has a PJ monarch or dual coil monarch (emporers are OK too :) )
    I'd love to talk about a swap.

    I might consider a trade plus cash (about $1500) for a yin yang standard
    STR basses, Sugi basses, and some R-basses are of interest too....but mostly would like another fodera.
    Cash price $5800

    if you have a monarch or emporer that is more valuable than mine I do not have cash to add to the deal but I do have this bass which was built to same measurments and my favorite PJ monarch.

    here is a link to original sellers thread

    The specs are as follows:
    *3 piece maple neck with ebony fretboard
    *dovetail neck joint
    *swamp ash body
    *spalted beachwood top
    *EMG pickups
    The preamp has been recently upgraded at the Fodera factory with a Fodera/Pope custom preamp (volume, bass, treble, passive tone, mid w/mid switch, pan, active passive switch).
    The bass plays and sounds like a dream, I have taken very good care of it over the years. Brand new, a this bass would cost over $7350.00, (and that is without the custom circuit) and wait time is over a year. Besides that, you don't see many vintage Fodera's around. Asking price is $5800.00
