    2004 NAMM show Fodera Emperor II Elite.. This bass has a great sound somewhere in the range of an early 70’s Jazz bass on steroids. The solid top is holly. It was white when I bought this bass in 2008 but has darkened to a butterscotch shade with age. Ash body, five piece maple neck with purple heart stringers , maple tone block, Aero pickups. 20180312_174704.

    35” scale, 19mm.Weighs about 11lbs , perfect balance.

    This bass was PLEK’d by Fodera about four years ago and had a general inspection and overhaul including new pots where needed. The Mike Pope preamp is the older pre 2009 version. I feel this is perfectly voiced for this instrument and for that reason I chose not to change to the newer Pope preamp.

    Has three small dings. One on front, one near 5th fret on B string side of neck, and one on headstock. Also a little belt buckle rash ( see photo.)

    Buyer pays shipping cost.

    I am located in Puerto Vallarta , Mexico. Please contact me for further info if interested.
    Thanks for viewing!
