    Fodera Emperor 5 Standard Special #05: $5175....open to partial trade

    Weighing in at 9.5 lbs, is a Fodera Emperor Standard Special with a Port Orford Cedar top. Port Orford Cedar is described on Tonewood.com as "a rare, hard variety of Cypress, very light in weight with incredible strength. It fashions and fabricates with no issues and finishes with a glass like smoothness and amazing stability. It is ideal for tops, backs & sides, and necks. POC is also amazingly resonant with tonal qualities second to none. The sound is similar to Redwood, a bit less bright with full rich sound and harmonic development."

    The bass comes with the original Fodera hard shell case inclusive of that heavenly Fodera smell when you open the case. Also included are matching gold colored strap locks ($30 value),Fodera truss rod kit (never used...$30 value) and all the original Fodera papers.

    The only blemishes are a small ding on the edge of the lower bout control side and a very small blemish to the left of the bridge. These are shown in the pics.

    Fodera Info: Emperor 5 Standard Special #01

    From time to time and when the spirit moves us we plan on doing small, limited runs of “special” variations on the Standard theme. The Emperor 5 Standard Special is the first of these!

    Designed as a variation of our popular E5S, it features an Ash body, Birdseye Maple fingerboard, and a Port Orford Cedar top. The E5S Special delivers deep, tight lows, transparent mids, and a wonderfully bright top-end making for great slap tones and precise, percussive, and articulate finger-style runs.

    You're correct, sir.....these basses are truly awesome. The only reason this one is up for sale is for that crazy statement called "debts". We are trying to get debt free and are saying goodby to certain blessings...

    Totally open to partial trades.....here's a list of what I'm thinking about....mainly above 4 strings:
    Fender Precision '57 Road Worn, Nash, Sadowsky Metros, Valenti, Elrick, Clement, Brubaker, R-Bass, CB Basses, Devon, MTD Heir, Musicman Stingrays, some Yamaha, some Fenders, and no fretless basses. Also open to some amps and cabs.....

    Mainly trying to pay off old hospital debts, but partial trades +$$$ will not be shutdown....
