BassNW has been advertising a Fodera Custom Monarch Elite 5 fretless for a few months now that was just gorgeous. Bubinga/Wenge neck thru with Bubinga sides. They put it on sale last month, and I finally decided yesturday that my credit card could handle the hit, so I called on it. *Dramatic pause* They sold it earlier this week. I had all my GAS going toward that bass, and now my GAS is flat. According to the Fodera site, the same bass newly built would run over 6 grand, and I REALLY can not afford to shell that out. *Big sigh* *Deynn, Stingray5 - was not sure if this was Basses or Misc.; figured I would start here.
