    Detailed HI-RES PHOTO GALLERY: Fodera E5S206

    This bass was from a small batch that Fodera built for Martin Music in Memphis, TN with woods selected to bring it closer to a Custom than a regular Standard series build spec. This one features a Premium Buckeye Burl top, Swamp Ash body, and a 3-pc Maple Neck w/ Ebony fingerboard.

    I have been the original and sole owner having purchased in December 2016. Comes w/ teardrop HSC, CoA, all tools, and paperwork. Bass has been to exactly one rehearsal and has otherwise just been played at home in a smoke and pet free environment. Condition is as MINT as it gets without any discernible wear.

    I am selling because I am not primarily a 5-string player and the instrument just doesn't receive much play. Playability, fit and finish, build quality, balance, everything here completely off the charts perfect and I will miss it but cant justify keeping an instrument of this caliber for the limited use it receives.

    SPECS:
    • 34 inch scale, 24 large frets, 19.0mm spacing
    • Weight: 9 lbs. 11 oz.
    • 11/02/16 DoM
    • Fodera / Duncan Dual Coil Pickups
    • Fodera / Pope 3-Band Standard Preamp: Stacked Volume / Passive Tone, Pickup pan, Active / passive (bottom), and Coil tap (top) switches, Stacked Treble / Bass, Mid (boost / cut when preamp engaged)
    • Fodera 19.0mm Standard Bridge
    Price is FIRM. Bass was $7100 new in December 2016 with a $1250 AA top upgrade, you will only find a top like this on a $10k+ custom.

    NO TRADES. NO EXCEPTIONS. Please do not even ask.
