Up for sale is my Fodera Emperor Elite 5 that was made in the late 80s. This bass has quite a history. Originally it was a fretless but 13th street guitars, an authorized Fodera repairer, made it to a fretted bass! The bass was then sent to Pat Wilkins for a black satin finish, which looks and feels great. The gloss that was originally on the bass was removed by Wilkins. The bass sounds and plays great, and is in good condition considering the age (I’d give it an 8/10). Specs: Quilted maple top Mahogany wings Alder tone block Macassar ebony finger board 3 pc Maple neck Lane Poors soap bars The new Mike Pope flex core preamp 34 scale 19mm spacing Bass weighs about 10lbs Fodera hard shell case (in pretty good condition Note: there was an addition of old scuba divers helmet on the body. This was added to cover the original owner’s initials. Pleas see the pics. $5000 (OBO) gets the bass to your door (CONUS). Paypal is fine. I’m really not interested in trades but may consider an MTD 5-string with wenge/wenge (neck/board) +cash my way. I won’t consider other MTDs. Please feel free to ask any questions.
