    Just a feeler as I have to many basses at the moment. Up for sale is a recent build late 2015 Fodera Emperor Deluxe 5 Custom. Out of 5 Foderas this has been probably my favorite. Tone is warm and traditional, but can be brite for amazing slap tones. Finger tone great too, nice and full with excellent natural midrange. Just the right amount of grind with a dose of clarity from the mahogany.

    Mahogany body
    Select quilted maple top with matching head stock
    Matching rosewood Fodera ramp included ($300 new)
    Matching wood pickup covers with dual Duncan's and custom pope preamp
    Dove tail neck
    Maple neck with Indian rosewood board
    Deluxe red velvet Fodera hard case
    10.5lbs
