    Up for sale or trade is this amazing Fodera Emperor II Elite 5 Buckeye. Extremely versatile and plays like dream. It is without a doubt the greatest bass i've ever played. I have two young kids and am not gigging much these days. Looking to give it a loving home. Up for outright sale, trade + $ or two for one. I would potentially also consider a trade for a 6 string Fodera. Comes with original Fodera hardshell case (including instructions and truss-rod tool). The newborn link is here: It's going up on EBay as well for $500 more. Would much rather do a deal with the TB community. I live in Hoboken, NJ right across the river from New York City.

    From the Fodera Newborn Page
    Unique Features

    "Built to cop the 70′s vintage vibe with all of the upgrades usually associated with our instruments. The core tone comes from this beauty’s classic Ash body / Birdseye Maple fingerboard. This tried and true tonewood recipe is than augmented by a set of our Dual Coil pickups, Custom Shop Preamp and legendary playability…

    Tonally, this bass just flat out sings…incredibly resonant, punchy, deep and authoritative, we literally needed to pry this out of Joey’s hands in order to pack it for shipping!"

    What is the string spacing, and how much does it weigh?

    Here’s a sound clip:

    Passive, tone knob 0%, even dual coils.

    Your bass is a beauty. Do you know what the string spacing is adjustable down to?
