    Wow, just got this in. What a beautiful well crafted instrument. I never played one before. Unless you've played a Fodera it's hard to describe the neck profile, fretboard feel and just overall craftsmanship. It is in awesome shape with only some swirls on the pickguard. Comes with tweed case with some wear on the handle and case edges, but still rock solid with all 4 latches working as they should. Also comes with a very nice Levy leather strap with the strap lock buttons already installed. Beautiful deep black finish with block and bound neck that is in perfect condition. The tone is to die for. Pope 2 band eq can be active or passive. I don't think I've encountered a active bass that can be just as big sounding in passive mode like this. And best of all it has that sought after Fodera butterfly inlay on the neck. Outstanding sounding bass.
    This is the best priced Fodera you will find.
    Sale: $2300 Shipped Cont USA
    Trade: Sadowsky Metro 5, Lull M5V, Tobias Basic or Classic 5.

    Nice bass, I almost bid on it. Good score, but why you getting rid of it?

    I'm a 5 stringer. This is too nice and too expensive to be a wall ornament. I can only afford to keep what I play to be honest.

    I'm pretty sure I had this bass for a while, and it is a
    great example of the NYC line. It's not the one that just sold on ebay different bridge,control plate and pickguard.
    Good luck with the sale.

    The one that I'm referring to on Ebay does have the same bridge, pickguard, control plate, preamp, pickups, etc. That's why I asked

    All PMs answered. Yep, same one that sold on ebay, I shouldn't have bought I but couldn't resist. Interesting lesson in final cost though, between shipping from Canada and UPS's strong desire to get into my pockets with the $118 COD (when it arrived) of what they called a UPS "brokerage fee". Oh well. It's a magnificent bass and I am covering cont US shipping on this.
