    This is a killer Fodera Emperor 5 from the late 90s. The bass has the following specs:

    Quilted maple top
    alder body
    maple neck
    35" scale length
    Brazilian rosewood board
    Duncan Jazz Pickups
    Pope Fodera Preamp
    double truss rod
    Not heavy / approx 9 lbs 7 oz

    This bass suffered a drop on the right edge of the body (below the switches) and a small area cracked as you can see the scars on the pictures. The cracks were glued and repaired by a professional luthier - you can still see the scars. In no way does it affect playability and you can get the nicest and lowest action as it has a double truss rod. It has a few dings here and there but overall, this Fodera looks amazing - was mainly in the studio. This beast has a big/fat fingertone and aan amazing slap tone too.

    Forgot to mention that the Fodera case is not in the best of shape as part of the back panel is separating but will be perfect for shipping the bass.

    If I'd dropped anything with this price range, definitely got to go to hospital or a sanitorium... :D

    (Metallica: Sanitarium... :bassist: :roflmao:)
