    INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING FRIENDLY!


    This pains me to do this, but up for sale is my February 1990 Fodera Emperor Elite.

    34" Scale
    Walnut Body
    Purple Heart Top
    Maple neck
    Ebony Fingerboard
    Blocks (no binding)
    Bartolini Pickups
    Haz-Lab/Fodera 2-band Preamp
    Fodera Tear-drop case

    Absolutely, hands down, no questions asked, best and most easy to play bass I've ever laid my hands on, including other Foderas I've played. The B string sounds amazing all the way up the neck. I've never played a B string past the 12th fret that ever sounded natural, they all ended up sounding hollow, but this one is just amazing, I really can't understand how Fodera does it!

    It's impeccably even sounding top to bottom, more even than my sadowskys. I'm just amazed at this bass.

    All that said:

    [DEL]$5300[/DEL] $4600 shipped


    Any trade offers have to net me AT LEAST $3000.

    Still available, and much, much cheaper than the very similar Emperor Elite on ebay ($6,899) right now. This really shouldn't last much longer I would think. Right?

    INTERNATIONAL BUYERS WELCOME!!!

    I forgot, I don't mind shipping overseas, I've done it a few times in the past and it has always gone smoothly. All you have to do is cover the extra shipping cost which is usually only $100 more to most places.

    Great bass! That was a great era in Fodera history. I'm sure this bass smokes.

    It sure is an amazing bass, just the easiest playing bass I've ever laid my hands on.
