SOLD Fodera Bona Imperial 5

  1. Price:
    Fantastic sounding and playing 2005 Fodera Bona Imperial 5 string with upgrades. This bass plays like a dream. Currently set up with low action with new Fodera Nickel strings .040-.100 and a tapered .125 B. It has sustain for days. Very growly and warm sounding. Extremely expressive, like a fretless. Neck is classic Fodera soft C shape. If you know anything about Fodera basses, the ones built before 2009 are special as they were actually hand built 100% by Vinnie and Joey. Truly an exceptional Fodera. This is the real deal. You wont be disappointed.
