    Offering up my as new Fodera Emperor 5 Standard Classic. Freshly strung with new Fodera Nickels strings and added one of their Tortoiseshell Pickguards (GORGEOUS!). Built within the last few months, I’m the sole owner from new; immaculate condition and sounds every bit as good as she looks. Why sell? I’m soon to be an acknowledged artist for another luthier. I opted to do this purely out of respect for my relationship with that company. I won't record or play live with it anymore, so it makes no sense to keep.

    I should mention: I've put this bass away since taking the photos to preserve the "newness".
    She's just waiting to be your's (future owner) to start making beautiful music again!
