TRADED Fodera Emperor Deluxe 5. Buckeye Beauty!!

Discussion in 'For Sale: Bass Guitars' started by Danny R., Jan 31, 2017.

  1. Price:
    Up for sale/trade is my prized Fodera Emperor Deluxe.

    I just got my custom MTD Super 5, I really don't see myself playing my other basses..... I am the second owner of this bass, bought it from the original owner in 2013, he purchased the bass from Planet Bass in Maple Grove, MN. It was built in July of 2011. It sounds incredible, plays incredible, and looks like a million bucks.

    The details:

    - Fodera Emperor 5 Deluxe
    - Extended Low B Headstock
    - Buckeye Burl Top
    - 34" scale
    - Indian Rosewood fingerboard and pickup covers
    - Duncan Dual Coil Pickups with wood covers
    - 3 piece hard rock maple neck
    - Walnut body
    - Fodera/Pope preamp
    - Custom Ying Yang knobs made by Devin Cline.
    - Fodera Custom Shop Case

    The bass has some dings from normal use but nothing bad, it's also light for a Fodera (9.5 lbs). I had Devin Cline made some Maple/Purpleheart Ying Yang knobs, they look just amazing.

    Asking $8500 plus actual shipping, international shipping no problem as long as you cover all shipping/packing and customs.

    I would interested in another Fodera with a Maple board, USA MTDs, Ken Smith Elite, Sadowsky NYC, Alleva Coppollo, Roscoe or other basses of the same caliber plus or minus cash depending on what you have. 5 string basses only and must have at least 18 mm at the bridge, I could do 2 or 3 for 1! Please no silly offers :p

    Feel free to ask any questions and thanks for looking!
