    Fodera Emperor 5 Standard Classic - a tonal Swiss-army knife of a bass!
    Made and purchased in the third-quarter of 2020. I am the sole owner from new and she remains in immaculate condition.
    If you missed out on a Satin White finish or desire an abalone/MOP (position markers & butterfly logo), here's your chance as they are both now discontinued barring a Custom Build.

    SPECIFICATIONS:
    • Alder Body
    • 24-frets: PLEK’d Compound radius fingerboard
    • 3-piece Quarter-sawn hard rock maple neck
    • Rosewood Fingerboard (+$150 option)
    • Satin White Finish (no longer available)
    • White Pickguard (plus a brand new extra Tort Guard - protective plastic still in tact)
    • 19mm bridge spacing
    • Fodera/Seymour Duncan Dual Coil Pickups
    • Fodera / Pope 3-Band Preamp
    • Controls: volume, pickup blend, tone, stacked bass/treble and midrange control. Spit coil & active/passive switches
    • Certificate of Authenticity, Tools and all Case Candy
    • Mono Vertigo M80 Series Case*
    • Weight: 9.4 lbs

    *This was provided by Fodera from new. Likely due to their standard case causing staining to the Satin White finish. Retail is of equal value.


    A new build with these options would total $6375 (+SHP and/or sales tax) with the extra pickguard. Avoid the wait-time, and get a substantial discount on what is very much a brand-new Fodera! $5200 + Shipping* within the lower 48. Willing to meet for a local deal. NO TRADES please. Paypal ok.

    *Shipping/Insurance at a lateral cost can be expected to run $85 - $130

    Single Coil Mode + Preamp On with a slight Mid Cut; Blend and Tone controls to taste will get you there.
    Having the options and added flexibility with this setup is really convenient.
