    Absolutely one of the most incredible basses I've had the pleasure of owning! I'm now a big Fodera fan and interested in trading to try another wood combo/model. Unfortunately to do this I can't afford to have both so I'm willing to trade for the right fodera 5 string. I already have a nice Monarch 4 with ebony board and walnut body I love. Would love to find a Monarch 5 with a Brazilian rw board. Open to another Emperor but not really a fan of the imperial etc. Bass weighs in at 10.5lbs and balances extremely well. Comes with Fodera OEM case.

    Heres a YouTube link from the original dealer showing some more detail. He mentions it's the "best bass he has ever played". :)

    Thanks Danny and slam. Just put some new fodera nickels B to C and this bass sounds so good! Bass is in excellent shape and has the lowest buzz free action I've experienced.

    Some great trade offers! Still available. Ideal trade would be a Fodera Monarch or open to other interesting trades plus cash.

    Mitchricker does this bass have the standard neck or the thin/fast profile?

    Not 100% sure. I'm assuming standard neck profile. For me it's very much like the girth of my 62 jazz bass.

    Is there a way to measure and
    verify which one?

    Now that I think of it, the neck profile would have to be verified by the original owner. I played one thin/fast neck it felt like the "shoulders" of the neck were thinner. If that makes any sense. .

    This is likely a standard. It's more of a medium profile in my opinion. Really a nice balanced profile and one of my favorite from the 5 strings in terms of necks.

    Some great trade offers! Still aval. This is a special bass for sure. Ideal trade is a Monarch 5 deluxe or elite. Also have my eye on a newer emperor deluxe and therefore open to a 5 or 6 with a good sum of cash I could apply toward this emperor I have my eye on to try!

    Alpha. I agree, stellar bass. Lots of offers. Holding out for that elusive Fodera deluxe or elite that I'm interested to try next! If nothing pans out after sometime, it was ment to keep this one. :)
