    • 24-frets: PLEK’d Compound radius fingerboard
    • 3-piece Quarter-sawn hard rock maple neck
    • Rosewood Fingerboard (+$150 option)
    • Charcoal Frost Metallic Gloss Finish (+$175 option)
    • White Pickguard (protective plastic still in tact)
    • 19mm bridge spacing
    • Fodera/Seymour Duncan Dual Coil Pickups

    • Controls: volume, pickup blend, tone, stacked bass/treble and midrange control. Spit coil & active/passive switches

    A new build with these options would total $6175 (+SHP and/or sales tax). Avoid the wait-time, and get a substantial discount on what is very much a brand-new Fodera! $4850 Shipped/Insured within the lower 48. Willing to meet for a local deal. NO TRADES please. Paypal ok.

    Apparently the new List Price for this bass is now $6950
    My good price just became great!

    Hope I'm allowed to say this on your thread:

    Buy with confidence, folks. @crossover is a tremendous fella, ships impeccably, and sells beautiful basses. I purchased from him before, wish I could afford to do it again, and could not have been happier working with him.

    Thought sharing my experience may help anyone that might be on the fence...
