    An amazing Fodera with a growl for days! Great tone, bright and fat very 70’s vibe instrument.
    However , my Sadowskys get most of the attention these days and I decided to pass this work of art to another TBer.
    Here a link to the previous owner’s thread:
    No longer available - Fodera Emperor Elite Custom Black Burst 5 String

    Great price for an Elite with so many extras! $7500 shipped conus PayPal ok.

    Prefer to sale but just in case, Trade preferences: Alleva Coppolo 5 + cash, Sadowsky NYC 5 + cash, Fodera 5

    *Had several questions about the pick up size: Yes, these are standard size Aguilar pups ( based on fender size Jazz 5 pups) which means that you can experiment with most different pups available in the market if you don't like the Aguilars ( they are amazing pups though). Fodera preamp has solder free wiring so pups replacement is super easy and quick.

    Had several TBers asking “is there anything wrong with the instrument?”.
    The answer is not at all, it’s actually much better than I thought it would be. I just don’t have a need for it at the moment and can’t afford to have an expensive instrument with no much use.
    I bought it for a great deal and happy To pass the deal to the next TBer.

    I don’t have an appropriate set up to record the instrument unfortunately. To me, the ash neck has a very good sastain and a good, round low end. It’s still very punchy and growly similar to maple necks.
