    This bass is currently on hold

    Up for sale or trade is my mint condition Butterscotch Blonde Fodera Emperor Classic 5 string.
    This bass is deadly. Magnificent B string.....and rings out beautifully with harmonics.
    I may just keep it.

    Here is the newborn page where the pictures pop a little better than the lighting in my house today:

    Asking price is $4500 U.S. FIRM with shipping included in Canada or the Lower 48 United States. Overseas shipping is possible, please contact me for further details. TransferWise may be another payment service I would consider using as well. This bass was $5950 new and I tell you that it's as new as it gets and includes all case candy that is virtually untouched. Quite a deal if you ask me......and not a single blemish to note. Why buy new? You can get it right here! :)

    As for trades, looking mostly for a 5 string Alleva Coppolo.
    I'll consider a Wal or F-Bass with cash added plus or minus as appropriate.
    I may look at another Fodera Custom too, but the Alleva is top priority.
    Mainly interested in 5 strings, but will consider 4's. I don't do 6 strings thanks. :)

    Trades will be considered on a + / - cash basis. I may be able to throw some gear into the mix for a higher valued trade depending on what you're offering.

    I haven't played this particular bass but I have played many Fodera Standard's and standard classics, have owned two classics and a bunch of customs and so far my favorite Fodera's have been the standards, especially my current standard classic. These are every bit Fodera and are absolutely world class. I wish I had the money to buy this one.
