    Fodera Emperor 5 Standard Special - a “Standard” that is anything but! Unlike some of the other Specials, this one appears to be a one-off build that is far nicer than many Customs I’ve encountered. Chambered body, mastergrade top & the standout quality of abalone used for the inlays are just a few examples.

    I’m the sole owner from new and only purchased just a couple of months ago. Regrettably, I’m only selling to recover from having been on a bit of a buying binge. Selling this one, keeps me from having to sell any two of the others. Condition is immaculate, as-new; she will be missed.

    • Chambered Walnut Body
    • 24-frets: PLEK’d Compound radius fingerboard
    • 3-piece Quarter-sawn hard rock maple neck
    • Ebony Fingerboard
    • Mastergrade “10” Olive Top
    • 19mm bridge spacing
    • Aguilar DCB D2 Pickups
    • Fodera / Pope 3-Band Preamp
    • Controls: volume, pickup blend, tone, stacked bass/treble and midrange control. Mute & active/passive switches
    • Certificate of Authenticity, Tools and all Case Candy
    • Fodera Tear Drop case
    • Weight: 10.4 lbs
