    My beautiful and amazing custom 6 string Koa emperor is available for sale. I’ve used this inspiring and beautiful bass on many recordings and thoroughly enjoyed owning and playing it. I visited Fodera and hand selected the Ebony fingerboard and Koa top on this one and it is incredible. Koa of this quality is very rare and very expensive. The instrument is in excellent condition, plays like butter, capable of insanely low action, super comfortable and well balanced sitting and standing. The tone of this instrument ranges from articulate piano like with complex overtones to warm bridge-centric Jacoesque sounds.

    The reason I am selling it is the same as always, I have too many basses and want to reduce my collection a bit.

    ***A reasonable cash offer is preferred, no trades please***

    Price includes Paypal and shipping to the lower 48 states. Shipping quotes can be made for other locations.

    I'm really surprised that this Fodera hasn't sold yet, the price is excellent considering how much Fodera's go for brand new especially with the spec's that are on this Fodera and the cooliest thing is about this AD is the OP has demo's of the instrument being played and excellent pic's, what more could you want!!!!
    One of the most beautiful Fodera's I've ever seen, good luck on your sale sir.

    I love this bass.... I've been hunting for a Fodera 6 string. Now I just need to sell all my other gear so I can afford this one. (Seriously though.... I would sell ALMOST my entire collection and my motorcycle to buy this bass. I would keep my Boire Dolphin and my Moollon P.)

    Thank you, this is undoubtedly the finest six string bass I have owned! I really hope it finds a good home.

    Hello, your bass looks amazing, but my circumstances have changed a bit and I am pushing more toward a cash sale.

    Thank you much,
    Damian
