    Hey guys,

    What is the cheapest Fodera 4-string on the market? or that anyone is selling? I know it's a bit out of synch, but I've been Gassing for one latley. Even though they're REALLY expensive.

    Thanks,

    Mark

    New or used? If you're talking new, one of the 2-band Monarch standard's would be the cheapest.

    However, you could probably find a used NYC Empire pretty cheap in comparison. That or maybe a used Monarch of some kind.
     
  3. This bass is giving me some serious GAS!!!! It's called the "lost monarch" and it's on the Groove Shoppes website.

    I'm not sure of the price but it's not going to be cheap. :D :bassist:

    I'm gonna take a stab at 4k for a new one but I sold this one off clean/used Fodera at under 2k and it was sweet...sup Joey?? I liked this one a lot bro! Ditch the recessed straplocks though.

    You've got to take that picture down. It's just too much. I can't handle it right now. It might force me to do something rash.

    Price varies on the used market but a New Standard Monarch 4 will generally be the least expensive four string Fodera in the line. We get those in new and used fairly often so we usually have at least one in stock.

    You may also want to check out an NYC model as they tend to show up used from time to time.
     
  12. I thought the cheapest Fodera was an R Bass?!?!?!?!? :bag:

  14. I kid, I kid. I have played a Fodera and an R. No comparison.

    I have an immaculate Fodera Victor Wooten Classic 4 string that I might be convinced to sell. I've been contemplating the Classifieds and/or eBay and may go that route but thought I'd at least float the idea based on your post. I'd want $3,500 plus shipping. Ouch, I know. Not cheap but reasonable for this bass in this condition. It's about 5 years old and I bought is used but mint at about six months old. Only left my basement for one gig. Mark, PM if you're interested.
