    Stunning Fodera Emperor Standard Special 5 w/ upgrades up for sale.

    I'm selling only to fund a future build. Great intro to Fodera basses with the added bonus of the Stacked Dual Mid-range controls and Mid Toggle Switch. Extremely versatile range of useable tones!!

    Since acquiring the bass, I had Fodera send me a missing toggle switch nut, the newest issue truss rod nut as well as the missing case candy (truss rod tools, etc). Comes with a hard shell case.

    The bass is in excellent shape other than a couple very minor dings that don't photograph well. The most noticeable mark to be found between the bridge and the strap lock on the front of the body (see photo).

    What is the 3rd switch? The standard only comes with two switches.

    Are you sure? The butterfly inlay and wood grain look different to me. No truss rod issues with this bass but I did buy the newest truss rod nut and tool to update. Looks like you changed out your hardware. Great basses!!

    Yeah, different inlay coloration/pattern and wood grain if you look closely but they probably have very close serial numbers!
