    (edited to add these specs and price:)
    Asking price $7000
    Scale Length 35"
    String Spacing 19mm
    Nut width 2 1/8", brass nut
    Bartolini p/u's
    Ebony fret board
    Neck through, mahogany body
    Pre amp has: p/u pan, bass, treble (note: no mid), volume with stacked tone, switches for: on/off, active/passive, single/dual coil
    Serial # I 61396 N

    I bought this Imperial 6 used about 4 years ago from Bass Central. It is in very good condition. Plays amazingly, as it should. PM and I can give you the serial number and I'm sure Fodera can help you if you have specific questions that I can't answer. It is a maple top and mahogany back. Ebony board. Split coil switch and Bartolini pick-ups.
    This bass is featured in the book American Basses, 2003, by Jim Roberts, and I will include the book with the bass.

    All imperials are neck through. Definitely a lot of specs that need to be listed though. Great price!

    Hi thanks for the questions, and the patience with me, first time I've listed a bass here ;). I left a lot of key info out.

    It is neck through. 35" scale. I am traveling today, when I get back on wednesday I will put the nut width and string spacing. String width at the bridge is approx 19mm though.

    String spacing at the bridge is between 18 & 19mm. The nut width is 2 1/8".

    Are you sure I could not tempt you with an Emanuel Wilfer?

    I really could use a high end six string.

    I rarely have unreasonable bass dreams but this is one of them.
    It has been since I played one 15 years ago in NYC.
    Good luck for your sale.
