    Fodera Emperor 5 Standard Special, built 11/17. I missed the initial round of builds back in 16' and had to jump on this when it became available. The fact that this particular one had such a nice top, as well as the figuring on the body and fingerboard, easily puts this one aesthetically in Custom territory. The exceptional tone and neck profile, after having quite a few varying Standards (and considerably more expensive Customs), makes this a very tough instrument to part ways with.


    • Flamed Redwood Top
    • Black Limba (Korina) Body
    • 24-frets: PLEK’d Compound radius fingerboard
    • 3-piece Quarter-sawn hard rock maple neck
    • Highly Figured Birdseye Maple Fingerboard
    • 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
    • Fodera Tear Drop case
    • Weight: 10.75 lbs

    Newly sold for $6350, plus shipping. These aren't able to be readily ordered - no wait and quite a deal on what is very much a brand-new Fodera! $5880 Shipped/Insured within the lower 48. Low-ball offers will be kindly ignored. Willing to meet for a local deal. Paypal ok.

    *Sole trade option: Mint F Bass BN6 - likely to require + cash. Please PM all questions and inquiries.

    Absolutely nothing... I’m shifting my focus to keyboard this year; Nords are expensive.
