    Flamed Redwood Emperor 5 Bolt-On 5 For Sale or Trade.
    I'm in a position where I could thin my hurd of basses at the moment.
    However, a trade plus cash will work as well or even a 2 for 1.
    I reserve the right at any time to change my mind and keep this incredible bass.
    For those in the know, Redwood is a very special top wood that adds to the tonal character of the bass more so than other tops (from my experience and the experience of some professional players I have the pleasure of knowing).

    Trade Interests - Preference for 5 string bolt-ons, possibly 4's from the following builders:
    1) Alleva Coppolo
    2) All Original Pre-CBS Era Fender Precision or Jazz Bass
    3) Wal - MK2 or MK3
    4) Possibly another Fodera, but it would have to be one with similar wood specs (BRW fretboard being one of the key elements) or a Yin Yang Deluxe would much prefer a bass plus cash my way though.

    Trades to be evaluated on case by case basis with the above brands being my key interests. Send me your bass specs and I'll let you know.

    Selling price is $8000 U.S. shipped in Canada or the U.S. with payment via Paypal.

    Some comments from Fodera's Newborn page:
    Flame Redwood Emperor 5 Bolt-On

    This Emperor 5 Bolt-on features an Alder body and Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard, giving this instrument a very warm tone with deep, fat lows, smooth mids, and a nuanced, singing high end.

    This bass also features a stunning Flamed Redwood top, with wonderfully consistent, tight flame figuring!
