    2006 Fodera Emperor II 5 string. 35" scale. Spalted Maple Top, Walnut body, maple neck, kingwood fingerboard which is no longer an option from these guys. Only spot to note in on the back near the electronics cavity, other than that this bass is very clean and so easy to play. Effortless. This is one of the baddest basses I've ever come across, has the original case and tools. Now 7500 shipped paypal.

    Are there any sound/video clips posted anywhere? Also, could we know the width of the nut and string spacing? Thanks.

    String spacing should be the adjustable 19 mm, but here are some pics to better illustrate

    Thanks for the additional info, it really helps. Is that an alder tone block?

    No sweat on that info!

    I would have thought maple since it's lightly quilted/ flamed and pretty close to the neck shade. Their spec sheets don't specify.

    Yeah. That looks like a maple tone block for sure.

    I played this Emperor last year just incredible someone will be very happy! Couldn't see the owner parting with it, but we all know how GAS is.

    Asked about trades several times, only thing I am really looking for is POSSIBLY the right 34" Fodera 5 or partially on a Smith. Other than that, a trade plus cash that I can sell is possible, but keep in mind I'll probably sell whatever you are offering.

    Also had two guys ask and disappear, but will ship internationally if you cover costs.
