    Provenance: Bass was manufactured in May of 1990 (Serial# JGC533). I am the only owner. It has been regularly maintenance by Fodera EXCLUSIVELY.


    Construction: Walnut body with a cherry tone block. 3-piece Hard Rock Maple Neck with Macassar Ebony fingerboard. No inlays. The Top is Spalted Maple which, according to Joey and Vinny, they had only enough of this board to make 2 basses. I have one and Nathan East has the other. There are three pickup covers (explained below). Two are Wenge and one is Brazilian Rosewood.

    The Bass was Pleked around 2010. Action is low and clean.


    Electronics: Around 2000, the electronics were significantly upgraded. It consists of a 3 pickup, 2 preamp system designed for me by Mike Pope.

    · 2 Seymour Duncan Dummy Coil Pickups in 70’s Jazz spacing

    · Pickups are coil tappable and can be active or passive

    · Passive tone, Pickup Blend and Active Bass, Middle and Treble

    · A pull pot deactivates these two pickups and activates a solo pickup with its own preamp

    · Solo pickup has separate volume and Active Bass, Middle and Treble.

    · The entire system can be muted with one switch


    While the bass has been played and gigged with extensively, it is EXTREMELY CLEAN with no major blemishes. Bass comes with an iGiG gigbag.


    Come by and play it. You will be amazed. Serious inquiries only please.
