E34A94A6-226B-4A94-823F-A90A746C74E4. I’ve had the privilege of owning at least 15 Foderas (currently own 3 now) and this one is by far the best sounding and playing 5’er that I’ve ever had. This bass priced out for $14,500 new. It is in flawless condition and the price is firm at $7800. I prefer for you to send money directly to my bank account using Zelle or bank wire. I’ve included a picture of the build sheet from Fodera and a link from Foderas website of the instrument. This is one special bass and the neck is thin and fast a real pleasure to play!

    With the exception of your top wood, my 6 string Monarch is spec'd out exactly the same. Folks the combination of chambered walnut, alder, red oak and ebony is unbelievable!!!!! GLWTS
