    For sale only, shipping included lower 48: Gorgeous Fodera Custom Lincoln Goines Signature Imperial 5. 34" scale, 19mm string spacing at the bridge, 10lbs. Fabulous flame Koa top over a mahogany body with a maple tone block. Three piece ash neck with mahogany stringers, and an ebony fingerboard. This is a PASSIVE bass, with one concentric volume/tone knob. The pickup is a Fodera/Duncan dual coil. Beautiful Ebony finger ramp included, (though not pictured). New set of Richard Cocco handmade strings. Genuine Fodera hardshell "teardrop" case included.

    I am not the first owner of this instrument and it definitely has its share of small knicks, mostly in the back, see photos. That said, this is a FABULOUS instrument all around. By far the easiest 5 string neck I've ever played and the tone is just luscious. This thing just about plays itself. My ONLY reason for selling this wonderful instrument is purely financial.

    As I am sure most TB'ers are aware, Fodera prices are now stratospheric. I am not even sure what this bass would cost new, as it is a custom model with a solid top, but an educated guess would be at least twice this price. This is a custom ordered Signature bass, not a standard series bass.

    PayPal, cashiers check, or money order only. Bass ships when payment clears. Thanks.

    If, I had this bass, I would definitely modify it adding a second pickup and replacing with a real preamp: volume, bass, treble and mid's...

    While I understand that sentiment, I think that the beauty of this instrument lies in its simplicity. That said, if you want to buy it and preform those modifications, you have my complete support.
