    Hi! I'm going to order a new Fodera Imperial 5, but I know that Fodera guys are very busy.

    How many months do you think it will take before delivery?

    What's your experience about ordering a new Fodera?

    Thanks :)

    Expect 6 months to a year, depending on many many factors.
  3. have you checked the web based stores that carry fodera's in stock? perhaps you can find something to your liking there and skip the wait.

    Let see - you could call the factory and get a solid estimate, or you could go to TalkBass and get a bunch of uninformed opinions. Could this be a subtle attempt to let people know you're buying a Fodera? Hmmmmmmm.

    Except for the fact that many times the "factory" will quote you a time that they will never meet. And also, TB just might have several players who have ordered a custom Fodera and gone through the process thereby being able to offer real world experience.

    Also, I don't see what is so "subtle" about saying "I'm going to be buying a new Fodera."

    I think it's funny when new users will ask questions and they get ripped on by people, when all they did was ask an honest question. Ok maybe it's not as much funny, but sad.

    I know for sure that Turtle wanted only and honestly to have an idea about real time of delivery for U.S customers/shops.

    No subtle things going on, Jdombrow :rolleyes:

    Awesome! Excellent choice in basses, IMHO.

    I just read a couple of posts on the Fodera board where a year plus is fairly normal. And Jared should have a pretty good idea on the leadtime since he's gotten several from Vinnie and Joey. :bassist:

    I'm without fretted bass at the moment, so It's very important to know for me how many months I have to wait.
    It's important also to know the experience of other Fodera players that is a different thing than talk directly to Fodera guys, but... anyway... I don't see where are my advantages in let all the world know that I'm ordering a Fodera. :confused:
