    Looking for a trade for this Blonde Beauty in MINT condition. The bass is like new, nearly unplayed. I am offering this for US players mainly as a trade against another Fodera of similar value, but different top or body woods.

    Fodera Emperor II 5-string - 5A Quilted Maple

    Full Quilted Maple Top
    Ash Body
    Birdseye Maple Board, Abalone Blocks, 24 frets
    35 scale
    Gold Hardware
    Gold Knobs
    Factory installed Hipshot detuner
    Wooden Ramp (Maple)
    Dual Coils in wooden covers
    Pope preamp (newest version)
    Weight: 4,9 kg
    Birth Year: 2011

    This blonde beauty is like new - absolutely not a single mark on it. It even smells new ! Action is low and the sound is typical Fodera authoritative. 4.9 kg sounds heavy, but the bass feels much lighter, it is well balanced on the strap.

    The bass has been built in late 2011 and is still visible on the Newborn page of the Fodera site. Instead of the black ramp shown there it has a matching Maple ramp now.

    A factory-installed detuner allows for wall breaking lows with a deep A. The B string sounds fully integrated. Of course the bass works amazingly well with E-C tunes too.

    The sound is quite open in the treble and even along all registers down to a deep low end. Wonderful slap tone.

    Original teardrop hardcase included - like new as well.

    Trade value 9.500 USD / 5.900 GBP / 7.100 Euro. Overseas trades ONLY against Foderas of similar or higher value.

    Bass is located in Duesseldorf/Germany.
