    WANTED: Fodera Bass
    Posted: : 02/27/2003
    Category: Basses
    Condition: Excellent
    Age: Months
    Asking Price: $1000

    Hi,

    I'm looking for a Fodera bass, either 5 or 6 string model, Elite model only (I don't want no stinkin' bolt on! LMAO!), and prefer the Emperor model. I have up to $1000 to spend ..... CASH! I realise that is low market value, but I have seen a few go at this price. I also have a nice Ibanez Soundgear I could throw in to sweeten the deal ... LOL!

    Thanks, and remember, I'm a businessman first and foremost .... I wanna do a deal, and I won't mess around lowballing you on any bass you have.

    Almost as good as those people who demand you give them a vintage Fender for a fourth of what it's worth and it better be in perfect shape.

    Oh no, he's serious, because he's "seen a few go in that price range". :rolleyes:
     
  8. I've seen NYC Empires for around that price. It's well within the realm of possibility.

    A Monarch or Emperor, though... :D

    Yeah but that's a "stinkin' bolt on!"

    My stinkin' bolt on sounds awfully sweet though.

    Well, it seems a few of the ladies on Talkbass have taken exception to me trying to get a good deal.

    Fellas, go back to the bedroom and keep practising, and let the real players get on with doing what we do. Don't worry, there are plenty of coffee tables to go around for all of us, just accept the fact that you hobbyists have to cover the cost for us real players.

    Now we're just hobbyist and he's the real player! If he was a real player he could probably afford a Fodera.

    Ha thats great... Maybe someone could sell him a fullsize cardboard cut out of a fodera for $1,000... seems more realistic than scoring a Monarch at that price... :rolleyes: poor fella.. never gonna get a deal like that..
